It’s your opportunity to see the new council in action on standard issues.  The agenda and supporting documents are available for download on this webpage.

We’ve given more thought to Salima Padamsey’s statement (Monday’s post), and think that the answer is a change of wording for “criticizing elected members”.

If one of us was the Chair of a meeting and someone like Mrs Sue Smith or her husband Mr Mitchell wanted to speak, with their reputations for aggression (towards Michael Scott in particular, but also towards us) we would be nervous, too.

We suggest that “criticizing” be replaced with “showing aggression, disrespect or discourtesy to”.
