No deputations here thank you?

Rumour in the City Chambers - from several sources, so that's as good as true in local politics - is that the ruling Coalition are all geared up to rebuff absolutely any deputation requests for the 21st February budget-setting, Council meeting ... unless there is an absolutely specific item on the agenda that relates to their request?

Now, I'm inclined to give the benefit of the doubt just now - surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to try and repeat the stunt they pulled during the August school closure saga?? ... after all, that all went so well for them :-(

Hopefully all community centre management committees will get in there...... Time for a few home truths.

... make sure the requests are in, in good time!

I believe that several are already in. I'd thought that the deadline was up to the day before the meeting. Am I wrong?

Andrew said...

No, you're correct - I just feel that leaving it very late gives no time to argue against any potential refusals!

There's always storming the chamber

... of course, not something I would condone :-(
