Could the Council be so brave and radical?

Here at GW Towers we've been having a look around the Internet at how other Council carry out their duties to the electorate and it really doesn't make Greenwich look very good. Other Councils are exceptional at making documents available online for residents and a significant number of them even provide video webcasts of Council meetings.

We think it would be great for Greenwich if the meetings could be watched live (and archived for later viewing). Given the amount of money that Greenwich is spending on IT each year this shouldn't be difficult for it to do, and there are even organisations out there just for Public Authorities too use such as Public-i.

Something tells us that the leader wouldn't have the balls to do it though. Transparency is not exactly the Council's strong point, plus residents would be able to watch exactly what nonsense goes on in the Council chamber.
