Original message (posted by detritus21)
As it stands with Wigan Council the problem is with the size of the majority rather than the majority itself. With a majority like the labour council have it doesn't matter how decisions are made that will affect the electorate as they will get voted back in regardless. With a closer majority that could be lost more consideration would have to be given to the policies that have a direct impact upon the electorate which would be good for the town. As it stands the labour council are able to bully the small minority of opposition councillors.

Slightly off topic

It is also clear if you have been to a council meeting that the influence the leader has is excessive and are as such the councillors are obliged to vote to the party line. If you step out of line expect to be dealt with like Paul Kenny was which isn't he purpose of democracy.
