Greenwashing Hackney history
This - http://www.green-yes.com/chit_chong.html - says former Hackney Green Councillor Chit Chong - now a backer of the internal campaign for the Greens to have a party leader - was "London's first Green Councillor."
Strange. I could have sworn there were two of them elected in May 1998 in North Defoe Ward. Making him not "London's first Green Councillor" but one of London's first two Green Councillors. Wasn't the other one called Paul Thomas? Now what happened to him and why has he been scrubbed from the annals of Green municipal history?
