Default Mayor making and non attendance-

Was this political voting with their feet so that those against the Mayor would not attend. Does it also mean that if they don't accept the Mayoral process that they wont respect the role when the Mayor is the Chairman of the Full Council meetings tomorrow evening.

This type of voting with feet also occurs when there is the annual Civic Service when most of the Councilors from the opposition parties don't attend. They cant say it is because it is a Christian service as other faiths and denominations are included.

I assume all of those Councilors who didn't attend this evening due to not agreeing with the costs of the Mayoral office have all taken their full Council allowance and increase this year. Hypocritical would be an understament.

20 Council members not attending== as they are all paid in the basic allowance for events such as Mayor making are they all now going to donate their allowance from this evening to charity. Lets see how many will do this..

I think you are reaching somewhat to suggest non attendence = non agreement with the role of mayor!

Voting with their feet against the Mayors position seems to be a driver as 40% non attendance at a meeting that is in everyones diary for nearly 12 months which they are all paid to be present is nothing short of a disgrace and really needs investigating.
I wonder what the attendance rate was for the Full Council meeting this evening.
