Saying thankyou doesn't cost much

I am facing Policy and Strategy committee tomorrow (a committee that certainly does not do what it says on the tin) with some trepidation as up to now they have been mind-numbing experiences,. However I hope to liven things up with a couple of amendments. One I will let you know about tomorrow as I want to keep my powder dry but the other is a simple one, a matter of courtesy in-fact.

The Annual Performance report tells the story of our last year in office; a good council getting better is the story, (see here for more detail) but apparently no-one from present administration has thanked the staff which is quite sad really. Politicians may be the public face but its officers that do the work and it’s only fair that when their work is praised, as in this case, they get some acknowledgement. So tomorrow, I will giving them the credit they deserve.
