Comment posted Senior opposition members of council not obviously keen to work by John Sinclair.
When paying for expenses should we be looking for “Best Value”, car sharing and using public transport. Video conferencing would open up the democratic process to the people and an audit trail of participation of elected and paid members of the council. Has there been a fees-ability study done on this.

- “There will be many times where the additional time lost using public transport outweighs the additional cost of taking a car instead of the bus.”
Totally agree with what you have stated, an individual transport vehicle will always be more flexible than public transport and may be more appropriate at low volume times. If public servants had to rely more on public transport,would this not have a positive effect on improvements on the system which many of us have no option but use. Video conferencing would seem to be a very positive option.
- “These are unpaid positions” are councillors not paid.
Expenses, say no more.

Add in all the red tape too, so happens tomorrow is the first day of actual groundwork on my new build, years of feeding £000s of pounds into the bureaucratic machine to get to the build stage. When I installed a wood burning stove in my house, it virtually cost more for the paper work than the actual work of installing it. At one point they were demanding that I went for planning permission.
