Why can’t councillors answer the questions?

28 September, 2018

• AT the council meeting last Thursday Councillor Claudia Webbe could not give a straight answer to a member of the public, who was then involved in a row with security.

It was disgusting. She only wanted an answer to her question. I didn’t see any councillors raising their voices, bar sniggering among themselves.

Councillor Caroline Russell threw a question at Councillor Andy Hull, but he could not answer. This raises a question: what do these councillors, some on £50,000 a year, actually do, bar avoid answering questions?

But I had to laugh as we had some Labour questions to Labour councillors at what looked like back-slapping time again. They concluded they would email each other.
