Democracy in action.

My supplementary question was:

"As it turns out, I won't have to write to the Leader of the Sutton Conservative Party. Just to remind people here, he said he had "grave concerns" about the Beddington Waste Facility - otherwise known as an incinerator; this is because it has been brought to my attention that the restricted documents that Julie Belvoir (Council Solicitor) referred to earlier, refer to Incinerator Bottom Ash being sent to landfill. Incinerator Bottom Ash is the residue left in the chimney after the waste has been burnt. So, my question is this: Does the Council still believe an incinerator won't be built?

Answer from Councillor Thomas:

Mr Khan knows that we cannot discuss blah blah blah. The Green Party in Germany blah blah blah.

He was heckled from the gallery throughout his answer. I called out to the Waddon councillors, who actually pledged they would oppose the incinerator if elected (see here), "You're going to lose your seats." I caught Councillor Claire Hilley looking up at the gallery, I shouted out, "You're going to lose your seat Claire." She appeared to mouth, "So what!" After Councillor Thomas managed some inane reply, he got a round of applause from his fellow Tories.Link
NOTE: Our tweeter Brendan has been tweeting about Incinerator Bottom Ash being leaked from the document [not from the chimney].
