The public were chastised and brought to order

Dear Beagle Editor, Today’s Council meeting was another learning curve for the community.

The Lord Mayor surely mistook her role as Chairperson of a public meeting in mistakenly believing that she was afforded the Honourable title of Supreme Court Justice or the Principal of a prestigious private girl’s school.

In her autocratic style, our Lord Mayor, barked from the bench ‘That will be enough of that from the gallery’. Obviously, our Lord Mayor does not appreciate the public expressing any view that may be critical of the aristocracy . On the other hand, her poorly hidden disdain toward public speakers was rather obvious, subtly belittling them by putting questions to members of staff who would obviously contradict those opinions held by members of the public who, in turn, were denied a right of reply, such is our democratic system of government.
