What would you do if you were in a 7 hour meeting about the Olympics?

Labour local councillor Rofique Ahmed recently faced this decision at a meeting. What did he decide? To sit there saying nothing.

Only one slight problem with this tactic.

It was a key planning meeting which had to decide whether or not to grant outline planning permission for the London Olympics. A pretty big decision.

And he was the only councillor from Tower Hamlets sitting on the body.

Actually, I exaggerate slightly. He did talk once – to be excused to go to the toilet.
