A Political Shambles (2)?

Attended an enjoyable (Council-sponsored) lecture last night by the City Design Champion Terry Farrell ...

... he presented a fairly blunt message about the need for some clear leadership on certain specific (planning) topics - top of the list: trams. It has been a common theme of his time as Design Champion.

And, I am stating the obvious when I say his specific message(s) haven't always been heeded ... but, at the very least, clear political direction has been present - even if not of his liking.

As for the future, I'd love to be wrong, but given the current political circumstances I just cannot see such equivalent leadership being forthcoming in any shape or form :-(

Not good for the city ...
