IS IT A PANTOMIME? IS IT A FARCE? NO, IT’S A LIBDEM CABARET.

30 August 2008

Apparently the new unitary council for Cornwall, which comes into force next April, should have around 123 councillors. However, the unitary mahoffs in Cornwall have not got the necessary information to the boundary and electoral authorities for new wards to be made in time for the elections next spring, though the boundary authorities should be more energetic in their approach – their 123-seat consultation does not start until November. The first elections to the unitary council will therefore have to be for eighty two councillors based on the present county council seats. It isn’t clear whether the first council will run for a full term, 2009-2013, or will be cut short for replacement by a 123-seat council.

Is anyone surprised that Cornwall unitary council conceived in the irony of Libdem democracy should be born in chaos?

Another prizeless quiz. Tick one. This situation is a:
Pantomime
Farce
Circus
Opera buffa
Burlesque
Cabaret.

Let us be of good cheer. The Cornwall Libdems have promised their unitary council will save us £millions. What are you going to do with your share?
