I agree with Robin Young that Jacob O'Callaghan was right to rid Ally Pally of Firoka, and that it was right at the time for the GLC to pass control over to Haringey Council.
Although the council hasn't been too clever in running the Palace, who is to say that the building would not have fallen down by now without their involvement ?
I agree with the idea of independent trustees. Haringey Council should continue to have some involvement, but not interference, in case the new regime goes pear-shaped.
I question the opinion that the Palace is well-used, with the Great Hall sometimes empty, certainly since the recession, the theatre unused, the ice rink falling apart, the Phoenix bar little-used unless exhibitions are on and the television studios normally dark.
