We are still in a pandemic, we can't go out to parties says @ShanksSue For the budget we'll be in a bigger space. Councillors in the chamber have tested negative and are masked. She does not understand why Conservatives are changing what was agreed. #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Conservatives refused to comply with the agreed smaller number which was mandated at Policy and Resources says @ShanksSue Which reflects the lack of concern for their fellow human beings #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
The council and staff need to return to work says @HKDawnNick Council staff have spent far too long working at home. #Hove Town Hall is a ghost down. Residents are not receiving the level of service they received before the pandemic #LDreporter #Brighton
Residents are disillusioned when they phone rings out. Council tax payers are not receiving value for money. Councillors should stop obstructions to normal council meetings. 54 members have not met in person for two years says @HKDawnNick #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Other councils have hired sports hall. Greens and Labour voted to keep #Hove Town Hall shut. This is a backward step. @HKDawnNick says businesses shops and schools are at work but the council lags behind #LDreporter #Brighton
Councillors saying they are not safe to go to meetings fly and go abroad says @HKDawnNick Councillors do not want to go back to work and do they job they do. They stay away. Have they had their jabs. #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Leader @Phelimmac says council staff and councillors have worked 60 hour weeks throughout the pandemic, as have the officers. It is an insult to the people who work for the council who put themselves at the heart of the pandemic #Ldreporter #Brighton #Hove
Our role is to keep people safe says @Phelimmac Cityclean kept going.
@john_allcock These are difficult times and some people are more vulnerable than others. We need to respect differences. More than 150,000 deaths more than any European country #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
The government seeks profit and people are aexpendable says @john_allcock Cases are up. A member who should have been in today is unable to attend because they tested positive. @HKDawnNick insults staff by saying they do not deliver services #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
@john_allcock @HKDawnNick Brave Cityclean staff were heroes when we didn't know what was happening, they kept emptying the bins but it does not seem like that from @HKDawnNick says @john_allcock We need to protect cleaning staff, officers and councillors #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
We need to take public health steps unlike the shenanigans at Number 10 says @john_allcock We have full thorough and transparent discussion at committee level where meetings are less crowded. Officer deligations as sensible oversight #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
When transmission and infection reduces we can reconsider says @john_allcock Written questions should be taken as read to protect colleagues at committees #Ldreporter #brighton #Hove
We do work outside of the chamber says @ShanksSue We met online, sitting at home until 11pm while the government allowed it. We have returned to face-to-face because the government changed the rules. #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
As councillors if we have to be somewhere we have to take responsibility for ourselves and our staff says @ShanksSue This was agreed at Policy and Resources and will be looked at again in April #Ldreporter #Brighton #Hove
There is now a council on the Conservative amendment.
11 for
23 against and the amendment is lost
#LDreporter #Brighton #Hove

20 for
11 against
