The lack of Local Demorcracy in Nairn - what is wrong succinctly explained by the Nairnshire Telegraph

Cracking editorial in the Nairnshire these week "Out of the Bubble" which once again examines the running sore that is the democratic deficit in our community, the following paragraph hits the spot!

"The smaller numbers of councillors and officials has created a bubble effect. Don't talk to Joe Public because he's spouting poorly based opinion and it's a waste of time. Talk to a focus group or stakeholder if you must. But don't take them too seriously because, really, we're talking amongst ourselves, in our bubble where we hear the voices we know and like, talking reason we can understand."

Get yourself a copy in a newsagents near you to read the rest.
