One or two at each meeting would be interesting...FWIW: My wife (in her capacity as a participation/youth democracy worker) is going to try to get some young people (mostly the current members of the Devon Youth Parliament) to attend every one of these meetings to give the young people a chance to voice their concerns. I think some of us ought to attend them too and be positive about it all. I also don't think they'd be spending the money doing this if they weren't going to listen.Sorry Gordon... I strongly disagree with your interpretation of the above. The exercise is so that they can tick the "have I consulted the public?" box. The decision has already been made, the mechanics are ready to rumble and the axe ground to a slither. At least that's the way it works in Torbay.
Well... My wife, who works for DCC is a great believer in democracy and has assured me that this isn't just a box-ticking exercise, so I'll have to taker her word for it.
