    Brilliant for seeing how badly some councillors perform. You can spot the talent (not) we pay a fortune for, and check on which councillors actually turn up. You can also sit and watch nearly all the councillors sitting there, who do not say anything meeting after meeting, just stick up their hands to vote when told to do so.
    Everyone in Rotherham should be made to watch the films, just to see the value for money we don`t get.
