No disrespect to you Steve but why do we need another Mayor.  We have droves of experts running this City or should be.  They are paid to do a job.  So why do they need to call in so many consultants to help them do the job they are paid to do?  Why another leach.  Then what many ask is who are the independent panel who will fix the Mayors fees perks and all his/her hangers on.   The same usual faces of ex councillors and mates how can that be independent?  Then who will sort out the questions put to these people?   Then we come to the Council inner circle or Cabinet who control what the council approves  as Councillor Draycott said I have no input any more the clique run the show.  So why do we need so many councillors being paid for sitting around with no say in what goes on.  This council treats the tax payers with contempt and an never ending source of expenses for them.    8)
