Giant leap backwards

Over the past year, Lincolnshire County Council Leader Martin Hill has taken a number of steps forward to start repairing the confidence and trust in the council.

After one former Leader was sent to prison for abuse of office and another recently barred from being a councillor for his conduct, our reputation was in tatters.

But on Friday, Martin and the Conservatives who run the Council took a giant leap back to the past, by ending a 30 year tradition of allowing written, on the record questions and answers at full council meetings.

Will try to blog further details over weekend of this and other developments.
