Imagine having organised the largest campaign in recent (and no-so-recent) memory in Wandsworth and, at the end, you attend the relevant council committee: the opportunity for you to have your say.
Last night was my first full council meeting as an independent councillor, and in some ways one of the more interesting meetings I’ve attended, because I could attend and make up my own mind rather an having each of my votes pre-determined by the whip.
If I have wittered on enough about surgeries the South London Press have prompted me to witter on even more by publishing a story sparked off from the original blog post.
I’m going to come right out and say it, it’s a risk, but I’m taking it: I think council surgeries are a waste of time.
Twittering is a form of microblogging which, along with this blog, I started as a bit of an experiment.
