Actually John, I already do around 12-15 hours of voluntary work each week but don't let that stop you accusing me of standing on my high horse if that makes you happy. :-)

When I stood for council (Mandeville Ward, well over twenty years ago , losing by <10 votes) I did so from a position of wanting to serve my local community in some way not claiming allowances to supplement my income. The same I guess applied to my six years as a school governor, twelve years as a Churchwarden, twenty years on a parish council and ten years of helping charities build their on-line presences without any charge or personal benefit.

Sorry, this is not an ego massage but simply a counter to clueless keyboard warriors who accuse others of cynicism without any iota of a grasp of the facts.

The FACT is that local councillors claim over 1MILLION in allowances, where is the measure of community service in that? Scaling back service is of course something to which we shall have to become accustomed; however we surely have a right to question the motives of a politically driven agenda which cuts vital services while, at the same time, spending capital on unwanted car parks and desk-shortening.

I look forward to seeing you behind the desk in your local library sometime soon John.
