Is council’s top cat going against the wishes of people?
I NOTE with interest certain issues dealt with by North East Lincolnshire Council leader Chris Shaw:
The imposition of a 1 per cent surcharge on the wages of all council employees to park their cars in council-owned car parks, causing congestion as employees park out on the road to avoid this charge (this one isn't good for morale).
The announcement of the closure of Immingham Resource Centre, causing long-term tenants and users to find other accommodation (the centre is still open).
The digging up of flower beds in Cleethorpes, whose main industry is tourism (mean spirited).

The announcement of the closure of Grimsby Swimming Pool, clearly against the wishes of the people of Grimsby (surely he is not proposing to pull down a perfectly good swimming pool and build another in these times of economic restraint?).
The ludicrous suggestion that all MPs should be done away with (but not local councillors). Recently, my cat used a newly-planted seed tray as a cat litter tray. He cannot be blamed for this.
He is using all available resources as he thinks fit.
Presumably, Councillor Shaw is using all available resources as he thinks fit. But he is not a cat.

The Telegraph Says:
As leader of the council, Councillor Chris Shaw does have to take overall responsibility for decisions made, but as a democracy, does it mean all the plans were spearheaded by him? That said, is it better to have strong, direct leadership than one that dithers and goes nowhere?
