Could there ever be live weblinks for RMBC Council Meetings?

Good Morning Rotherham Friends,

Maybe, like me, you’re still wondering why there could still be such profound reluctance and unease on the part of Rotherham Labour Group who continue to dominate RMBC Elected Members to deny the proceedings of our Council Meetings to be accessible to us, the tax paying public, via weblinks.

Perhaps this little incident where an Australian citizen confronts a politician may just begin to give you a clue – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8rsyg0lkkM&feature=player_embedded

If we can’t both see, hear and read what’s going on down at Town Hall Towers, then do those Elected Members expect us to rely purely on their sincere assurances and the scant sanitised selective Minutes they make … over to you … you decide …

Let them always remember, THEY work for US …

  1. Interesting thought that. Myself the town hall might as well be on the dark side of the moon. Even if I could make it to the town hall, I would not be able to make it up to the public gallery so would have to sit alone at the same level as the chamber and would, no doubt, have to sit alone, again something I would have considerable difficulty with! Webcasting meetings for me would remove all the barriers I currently have to see what is being done in our name. In this day and age this should be mandatory not subject to resolution at each and every meeting and so far no one has proposed this resolution to enable all Rotherham’s citizens to witness proceedings! Why not? We should certainly be told. By the way the equipment is already there, it only requires switching on!

    • Rothpol – I just love the last part of your posting – “By the way the equipment is already there, it only requires switching on!”

      The more cynical reader may mistake those words to actually being a reference to the Muppets assembled in Town Hall Towers. Of course I would never dream of subscribing to such a cynical view of the Gathering of Corn Fed Hogs noisily grunting away at the trough and taking their direction from Boss Hog 🙂
