Councillor Davod Harrison

How big was that fish?

As I sat down with the new Town Council last night, my mind cast back a quarter of a century ago when I was a fresh faced Councillor, surrounded by the “old guard”, most of whom have long since passed on.

It was interesting listening to them but quickly finding out that many of them adopted very familiar and predictable patterns of behaviour.

Without naming anyone, there was one Councillor who always claimed that she had received scores of phone calls on any particular subject.

It was a way of telling everyone that she was important and the “go to” person on any issue.

I am pretty sure that she regularly grossly exaggerated any contact that she had, but of course, there was no way of determining one way or the other….. so we had to put up with her claiming such things again and again.

These days, I guess it is a bit easier to determine if somebody might be making false claims.

People can see, on my Facebook Page, which issues capture people’s interests and which don’t so much.
