How's your county council doing?
Ours has moved from Lib-Dem control to Conservative, I suppose time will tell if that is a good thing. One of the first acts of the County Council after the previous elections was to award the councillors a rise in expenses, the Leader of the council justified it, saying that the rise would be funded from savings the council had made ( cutting back services etc). Somehow I think the councillors will be less likely to try the same this time.
I see that Brown/Sugar are now a political item. Sir Alan Sugar, said to be a good friend of Gordon Brown, has accepted the post of Enterprise Tzar, and is likely to be nominated for a seat in the House of Lords in order to join the government.
So much for democratically elected representation, then.
