Here is my theory, which is mine

A colleague posted a link to this report by the New Local Government Network … It’s a good read, sure, but missing a certain something. So here’s my submission:

Q: If you could change just one thing about local government, what would it be?

A: Well, I would change the way we only ever ask ourselves that question, as if we’re the only ones who could possibly have an opinion.

Just saying.


Wouldn’t it be something if we asked other people this question? People who have to work with us, people who have to work for us, people who depend on us for essential services when they’re most vulnerable, people who have only us as an option and can’t vote with their feet? What an interesting conversation that would be.
