The problem is that the Leader & Cllr Haworth usually fight on the same side

There'll be fights to secure this prestigious role.

Can we nominate someone we think suitable?
And if so, will husbands be free from prosecution/persecution? Or will the normal law of the land apply?

Yes, but remember it is a challenging role.

The dragon has to lose.

We're stuffed, they won't let us away with it, they look after their own like nuns borrowing a ruler.

Re: Royal Wedding - The poll.

It is an ideal time to book a flight abroad I found - there are more incoming tourists so outward (the return) flights are plentiful.

I spent silver jubilee day in Venice. Sadly I find long distance travel too exhausting now, but if I don't switch on the TV or radio I can avoid all that over priced pomp.

Yes, spotted that ... will be querying it .. has not been brought up in front of the committee of which I am a member Perhaps not reported quite correctly. Possibly Sparks, the junior side, but all under one umbrella.

Anyway, I have voted YES.

Re: Royal Wedding - The poll.

A NO from me budgets are tight enough as it is. Some councils want there staff to work that day as it would be cheaper or take the day of their annual entitlement. The money if it is being set aside should be used for something more important than a party.

I'm no Royalist and I'd rather eat my own spleen with a rusty spoon than watch that pile of pants. ( But I'll take the day off though, thank you very much!)
