Cllr E. Campbell is one of those silly councillors who cannot resist the opportunity to 'showcase' herself.
Some unkind fellow councillors sneer at her behind her back as she postures as a reincarnation of Lady Thatcher. This, in itself, is harmless: however, when she wastes money on exercises like this she needs hauling back into line.
It is NOT the job of the council, in hard financial times like these, to waste money on fripperies.....and Creative Writing Courses are, in the heads of most people, a waste of hard earned taxpayer's money. The only advantage is that promoting it gives the nine man PR team something to do!
Cllr Campbell should never have been allowed back in the Cabinet.
Officers don't take her seriously and so encourage her to involve herself in projects which keep her from under their feet.
