Standing as a councillor – a lesson for us all


DON’T moan, don’t complain, stand to become a councillor instead. In this episode of the Richard Vobes show, the ‘Bald Explorer’ reports on what can be achieved through local democracy if you are prepared to commit time and effort, prepare your case and stand for election. He interviews two men from Thetford, Norfolk, who did just that. They made a critical film about a ‘20-minute neighbourhood’ proposal, leading to the town’s mayor losing her seat on the council, while the man behind the camera won his. 

There is a lesson in this for all of us.
