Contempt For Democracy Part 2 (Subtitle; What's That Burning Smell)

As well as the important stuff as detailed in the last post, we also have the questions the Tory councillors asked which seemed to mirror my own doomed attempts at playing democracy and holding the Dear Leader to account.

Now, I'm the first to admit that you could quite happily replace the Tory councillors at NCC with garden gnomes and it would be some months before anybody noticed. Frankly you could say the same with 75% of the Labour councillors too. I can say stuff like that out loud, I'm just a blogger. If you're the leader of the councillor I think it's traditionally expected that you respect the fact that people did actually vote for them and that you at least pretend to give a shit what they say.

Not JoCo.

Again, straight from the minutes -

"Councillor Georgina Culley asked the following question of the Leader:

Would the Leader of the Council inform the council how many questions for City Council meetings addressed to him by the public have been refused and deemed unworthy of submission and response?

Councillor Jon Collins replied as follows:

Thank you Lord Mayor. I'm happy to say I've answered all the questions from the public I've been asked in this chamber."

I bet JoCo thought he'd been REALLY CLEVER with that. You can see what he did there, he said he'd answered every question he'd been asked 'in this chamber'. So presumably, he meant not including the ones he'd been shielded from by ever obliging and sycophantic Lords Mayor. I bet he got many congratulatory pats on the back for that piece of low cunning.

But, whatever you think of the Tories, it's clear that he didn't answer the question that he was actually asked so JoCo* is clearly guilty of LYING by omission. So, as I said before he is a LIAR and the burning smell is his PANTS ON FIRE, the lying liar.

*If I get sued I will just state that when referring to 'JoCo' I was simpply referring to an obscure clown without a moral compass.
