Full Council

Full council was interesting. I started at 0800 in my office preparing. Last minute discussions were had including some with the opposition to manage the business of the day.

Lots of motions kept us busy most of the day, with a little light relief in the shape of carol singing at lunchtime. Some old fashioned thinking on bus subsidies from the Lib Dems provoked some excitement but nothing that represented particularly effective opposition.

Interestingly, without a doubt, the Labour group of 3 members provide significantly more challenge than the 21 Lib Dems. I suspect it is because the Labour group challenge on the basis of policy and principle rather than just opposing everything to try and win votes.
