Finally, four weeks after Cllr Folkes' shock resignation, the Council's cabinet has been reshuffled. I understand that the shuffle is designed to ensure that there are jobs which best suit the strengths of the councillors who have been chosen by their political groups to be Cabinet members.
This has meant, it seems, that it has been necessary to cancel all Portfolio advisory meetings for December. I have questioned the value of many of these meetings in the past and been ignored. So it is ironic indeed that we can now manage without them all.
