Offers to “take it outside” at Tower Hamlets Council meeting
A member of the public threatened to “take it outside, one on one mate” after a dispute with Conservative group leader Cllr Peter Golds at last night’s council meeting.
Ruhel Miah asked a question requesting councillors “uphold the highest levels of personal and professional integrity” when reporting complaints to authorities.
Naming Cllr Golds, he made a series of allegations prompting the Tory leader to ask for an address so his solicitor could write to him.
Mr Miah responded: “We can take it outside after the meeting, one on one mate.”
Speaking later, Cllr Golds said: “Anywhere else, the police would have been called and he would have been arrested.
