Reservoirs of goodwill

And elsewhere, Cllr Paul Tilsley has given in to public pressure - including a letter-writing campaign by local schoolchildren - and agreed to give the Elan Valley project a £20,000 grant. That's not quite how he saw it, though
'It was not due to public pressure. We have been trying to find a way of going forward with our colleagues from Elan. This was some time in its gestation.'
He's talking utter rubbish - which is no surprise.

In any case, this is the right decision.

It's you that talking utter rubbish,"political hack". Your idea of researching is obviously to open the Birmignahm Post. But I guess the Birmingham Post and your favoured party are about on the same level. Why don't you write for the Post?

Because they couldn't afford me.

The Post and the Mail can spark some trains of thought - I make no bones about that - but I pick up stories from everywhere. Sometimes, I even break the occasional story.

I'm happy to be corrected, so if any of the many anonymous contributors want to pass on their view of the facts, I'd be happy to hear.

Readers may be interested to know that this comment emanates from somewhere within the murky depths of Birmingham City Council. Or they may not.

Has somebody let Cllr Tilsley near a computer? They should know that he's only allowed crayons.
