^ a leader of some sort is needed just not four like weve had lately - between two stools the ass falls down and all that
Don't quite understand this.. By "four" do you mean other councillors who are willing to express an opinion/the opinions of their constituents even if it does go against the opinions of our "leaders"?
The big "shock" was Gary Robinson not getting re-elected but, is it possible that he was to far "out of touch" with his voters and, that's what cost him..
It's all well and good to make big(?) (or appear to support them) decisions but, if your electorate think differently, go figure..
Should have taken a few tips from his predecessor.. That guy was an expert in not taking the blame for anything....
