Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The problem, then is very clearly defined. http://thepeoplespalace.org.uk/vision2.html is not really a solution to AP's problems, its much more ambitious than that.
What, though is the solution? What can the good citizens of Haringey do to support the efforts of the small group of activists who have been keeping an eye on this?
Would getting Trigger elected to the management board be a forward step?
Adrian I don't really follow. How is it possible to be more ambitious than having a solution to AP's problems, (let alone, much more), without meaningful governance reform? The council have had total control for 30 years.
The current Trustee lurches from one disaster to the next. They suffer from poor advice. Occasionally they claim openness, but a good proportion of their meetings are Exempt, Special or Emergency. There is no vision, plus a trenchant determination not to learn lessons from previous disasters.
Our Charity's Trust Board is a political instrument and the proof is that the Majority Group always has a majority of voting Board members. It is not unusual for major decisions of our charity to be split-voted along party-political lines.
It would help to get politics out of our charity.
