  • There are some cynical members of the public out there who think that people only get involved in politics for personal gain, or at the very least to boost their egos. Can I respectfully suggest that to have awards for councillors might reinforce that view ? When Father Ted won a Golden Cleric award it was funny because it was rediculous and becuase we know people don’t go into the church to win awards. Isn’t this sort of similar ?
