Last week I wrote a posting called “Are we human or are we councillor” as a result of reading the excellent blog “The Local Government Officer”. It asked why that blog site had one list of blog sites headed “Councillors” and another headed “Politicians” – aren’t many councillors also politicians?
Well, my posting has had a huge amount of interest. But nowhere near the interest, I suspect, that the excellent piece “Local Government Is A Lot Like Cricket” will attract.
Do yourself a favour – read the piece. It’s innovative, insightful, and witty.
And I’d love to know where this particular Local Government Officer worked, because his summation of Sandy Bruce-Lockhart as “a bowler first, and a batsman later” is spot on (read the piece and you’ll understand).
Bowler or batsman, it was real honour to serve on his team for a while.
