Lynne Hillan refuses to meet the press
Times series reporters attended Barnet council meeting at Hendon Town Hall tonight and asked to interview Lynne Hillan. They wanted to present her with the paper's "Reject the Rise" petition bearing nearly 1,600 signatures, collected from Barnet residents against the allowances rise. But Hillan would only meet with the paper's group editor - our intrepid reporters weren't senior enough for her. (And they looked so smart in their suits!)
Hillan wasn't snubbing the reporters - she was snubbing the residents who have signed the petition.
