I'm appalled by present district council administration

First published in Letters by

IT is difficult to know where to start when writing about the behaviour of the majority group on Malvern Hills District Council, but I will try.

Last Tueday evening they clearly and single-mindedly continued forcing through the establishment of a joint chief executive with Wychavon.

They might argue that there are financial advantages in so doing, and so they are justified in ignoring the council's constitution and dismissing a legal opinion that inconveniently advises them against their course of action.

Equally, a detached observer might say that democracy should involve rational debate and constructive dialogue; two features that were sadly missing from the ruling group's behaviour.

Sneering at the opposition group does not take away the force of their arguments.

I am appalled by the arrogance of the present administration, and I hope sincerely that the electors will heed this and other correspondence on the subject and next May elect a council that is flexible, forward looking and responsive.

All the qualities that are now so transparently absent.
