Last night the council held an extraordinary meeting to decide what sort of leadership the council will have for the next four years.
Either a leader elected by the local voters or a leader chosen by the councillors, this decision was based on a consultation aimed at determining the views of the voters.
The result of the consultation was unanimous, all of the local voters who responded said the wanted a democratically elected leader chosen by the local voters.
The council then decided not to adopt the wishes of the voters but to have a leader selected by them the councillors.
The main question here is why ask the voters if you aren’t going to take any notice of what they say?
