They'll be a library. In there.....Somewhere

A scurrilous rumour has arrived that Hackney Council's Cabinet has mislaid £800K which Barratt was supposed to be spending on Dalston's Olympic Library. If anyone can find the web link to the Cabinet report (or the money) please put a comment below.

PS 10.3.09:The rumour is true. A report to Hackney's Cabinet states "It should be noted that £0.883m of this has not yet been paid to theCouncil and in view of the current economic climate must be considered at risk." - see para 25.10 here

  1. Find the web link? Ah! That would be easy, if ... the Hackney Council webshite's search facility worked.

    If you visit "Search Committee Documents" you will probably, like me, get:
    "Connection Interrupted.
    The document contains no data.
    The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again."

    Broken links? Sums up the Council, don't you think!

    Maybe you might have more luck.

    Off topic but I wonder how long before Cllr Laing and those other vandals at the Town Hall destroy this beauty in Gillett Square?

    Is there any way to stop their Philistine anti-art activities?
