Description
Dame Shirley Porter talks to Simon Hobbs about the suicide of Westminster councillor Dr Michael Dutt. Since auditor John Magill’s report found Westminster City Council’s Building Stable Communities policy unlawful, says Porter, there has been immense pressure on councillors and she plans to fight to clear her name in the wake of allegations of gerrymandering, or offering homes for votes.
