David Wilcox says...
"With formal democracy in such poor health, and a Government Minister calling for double devolution of power to community groups, you might expect local councils to be desperately keen to encourage active citizens to drum up interest in elections...."

Predictably, David's post shows that the reverse is true.

David, take it from me. There is a significant percentage of Councils in this country- perhaps the majority - that have never considered that they have any role to play in reinforcing or enhancing local democracy.
