Waste Watch

The news that our portfolio holding councillors are to get blackberry phones so that they can get email access makes me laugh. Is it really necessary for councillors to be in touch 24/7? I don't think so. This is a classic example of, 'we can so we will.' It is indicative of all that is becoming increasingly wrong in our society. Instant communication is no substitute for reasoned thought.
