Thursday night saw the second full council meeting since the election. To say that the behaviour of some people was childish and boorish would neither be a lie nor an understatement.
I'm still not up to speed on the standard of debate we should expect from Council meetings (and I'm no great orator myself) but whatever I expected, it wasn't that. One or two members of the opposition harrangued council officers, indulged in petty grandstanding and generally behaved in a way I would not have expected.
My Grandfather was a councillor here, and so was his cousin. I can't believe the council in their day was anything like the political nursery that I experienced on Thursday in the Chamber.
I did have to laugh though when the sole Independent Councillor that is not in the administration yet again continued to vote time after time with the SNP.
