Chris Black has an article in the Rayleigh Times this week about the District Council Cabinet system.
Chris has been a long-time critic of the cabinet system, so it’s no surprise he’s critical here.
“Having a cabinet system means that:
? things are less democratic
? money is spent on councillors? allowances that could be spent on protecting services
? because we are wasting funds this way, the council loses credibility when asking the government for more money.
