I’m a self-confessed Philistine, and while I leave it to others to decide how honest I am about my Philistinism, I don’t think anyone would imagine I would have willingly chosen to spend last Friday evening at a “process-based, community-focused project that will be part of the Exchange Radical Moments!
Reflecting further on the Neil Kinghan report I cannot help but feel a resonance with another report by David Hunter I read a few months ago on public sector health partnerships (which I think has relevance to all partnerships).
Last week I wondered if most people had moved on from the riots, mentally consigning them to history and getting on as if they had happened in another time or place.
The riots sometimes seem such a long time ago, and it’s almost tempting to say that things are largely back to normal.
I’ve just been into the council’s Community Safety division to thank some of the staff for their response to Monday’s disruption.
