VIDEO: Watch the moment ex-Mayor of Milton Keynes is booed by the public

Have your say

Boos filled the council chamber last night as a member of public was refused the opportunity to ask ex-mayor Subhan Shafiq a question from the gallery.

Councillor Shafiq, who represents Monkston ward, is not chair of a committee or a cabinet member so was allowed to remain tight-lipped while sat in the full council meeting.



The outraged public were told by the new mayor, Councillor Derek Eastman, that the constitution of the council is clear and that no “ordinary councillor” is allowed to answer.
