The following is pure conjecture. We simply note the following:

  • An incredible number of mentions involving the Councillor Code of Conduct in the Records of Assembly
  • An in camera item about more ‘legal advice’ in relation to the Code of Conduct

What does all this mean? We can only surmise that some councillor, and our bet is Lobo, has fallen foul of the existing clique and more ratepayer funds are being spent on legal eagles to ramp up their power base as well as shutting up any dissenters. All this certainly makes a mockery of Newton’s nomenclature of council being a cosy ‘club’. It has always been a ‘club’ divided and nothing has changed.
