This reader's comment sums it all up....
But can Cllr Freeman be persuaded to stand in as a pro tem leader?
"Apart from Cllr Freeman, it seems there is no-one qualified to lead RBKC.
This is the result of decades of excluding everyone of intelligence, integrity, competence or humanity from RBKC's toxic inner circle.
If, at this time of catastrophe, one of the usual suspects is promoted to lead, RBKC will collapse within months.
Then the UK's supposedly most prestigious local authority must be taken over by government Commissioners.
The Tory Government's dread of taking such radical action is the sole reason it's not already occurred.
Such action is the ultimate proof that years of cuts and lowering of traditional standards has finally done for UK local government.
Self-serving cliques of like-minded white, males are a total failure. They result in dead residents.
The only possible cure is a return to the old, open system of committees and committee chairmen coming together to run a Council.
Action is needed not just in the Rotten Borough, but throughout the UK.
Otherwise, we're lost.
