Unitary

This week it was announced that elections to the new Cornish Unitary Authority will take place in May 2009, not 2008 as originally planned. One of the odd side effects of this is that because Parish Council elections are to be brought in line with the Unitary elections, the next Parish Council elections will not be until 2013. So those of us elected to Parish Councils last year, and Truro City Council is a Parish Council, were signing on for for a 7 year term. I'm not sure that's a good thing at all.

2007 - 13 is six years, not seven.

It's a fair cop, you've got me there. See it's not hard to admit to a mistake. You should try it sometime.

Grow up the pair of you. You're supposed to be politicians.

Well, perhaps that's part of the problem, buy I take your point. Grown up stuff in future.
