Call My Bluff - East Barnet Car Park

Cllr Robert Rams told the East Barnet Residents Association that he was opposed to the introduction of charges in the Church Hill Road Car Park. We have the Barnet Bugle to thank for a permanent video recording of that meeting. Next week at the full Council meeting Cllr Kath McGuirk has tabled a motion calling Cllr Rams' bluff.

It states:

Cllr Rams said of the proposed charges that he, his Cabinet colleague Cllr
Joanna Tambourides and East Barnet co-councillor Barry Evangeli, would do
"everything in their power to stop them."

Cllr Rams also said that "We agree that these charges will be the death of the
community here. It is clearly not the right decision and I can’t see any
rationale as to how it would be. I personally haven’t seen a campaign like this
since I have been a councillor and that is why I’m so confident we will get the
proposals withdrawn."

Council agrees wholeheartedly with Cllr Rams, and asks Cabinet to withdraw
the proposals to charge in these car parks.

I look forward to seeing how Cllrs Rams, J Tambourides and Evangeli vote.


  1. Coleman, or one of his cronies, will undoubtedly table an amendment to this so that Cllrs Rams, Tambourides and the one nobody has ever heard of, will not be exposed as the hypocrites they are.

  2. Hi DCMD, If this happens it will make Cllr Rams look even more out of step with the rest of the community.
