  3. I had to really read this article several times to make sure I was ‘getting it’ properly. Yep I was, loads of councillors basically saying that they haven’t got a clue what’s going on or what ACOs really are. They were basically sleepwalking into this until the public made a LOT of noise. We need to make more, much more.

  4. And what happens when Kate Kennally has sold us all down the river, she’ll just move on to the next overpaid job and leave the rest of us to it! No thanks, we’ve seen enough of that over the past few years.
