We seem to have some local saviours in our village, Adderbury but they seem rather shy. A web site named Save Adderbury has appeared with a vivid green background and links to various statements flying right, left and centre. They seem to be taking a keen interest in the parish council and I wonder whether any of the proprietors of the web site either are members of the parish council or considered standing for it in the elections this year? The problem is that I cannot tell because the web site contains no information about the authors and owners of the site. This is very strange because the central theme of their writing is about openness and accountability and I think they need to be encouraged to practice what they preach. Something about sauce, goose and gander!
Until they practice what they preach, I will not look at their scribbling again but I will close by congratulating Diane Bratt on her re-election as Chairman of Adderbury Parish Council. The Horn Hill Brigade who have managed to swamp the parish council need to understand the first rule of politics: get your troops lined up for important votes! The fact that they were one light allowed the sitting Chairman to use her casting vote to secure her re-election in a totally lawful manner and well done to her. That she can tolerate the endless machinations and nit-picking that has typified parish meetings is very laudable. She clearly has the courage of a Thatcher and the patience of a saint and good luck to her.
