Comments:
It's quite a conversion to green issues for former council executive member Symonds isn't it?
When he was actually in charge of something - ie. housing - he couldn't wait to bulldoze pensioners' prefabs to make way for clean, green Crosby Homes could he?
In fact when he was in power what remotely green policies did he pursue?
So would his conversion to green issues have anything to do with next year's election in Southville?
Coincidentally he's up against the great Green hope, Charlie Bolton, who's been working his butt off to unseat the dozy New Labour crony this time 'round...
As for Orlik. He'll struggle against the Lib Dems in Windmill Hill in May. And hey! Guess what? There's the second largest Green vote in the city to be had in Windmill Hill.
Politicians? Dontchaluvem?
