The Croydon Guardian reports that Croydon Council chief executive, Jon Rouse, banned the press from a public meeting last night, lest he be subjected to scrutiny.
The ban is somewhat "ironic" given that the press had been invited by the deputy chairman of the forum to attend
what it had described as a public meeting at Croydon Voluntary Action
resource centre in London Road, where the council chief was answering
questions about the regeneration of West Croydon.
Now you know why Croydon continues to decay; the council have absolutely no intention of regenerating it, and don't want the press to report as such!
