Can Do is now Can’t Do
The ‘Can Do’ document sent by Cornwall Council to central government has been rejected by those in Westminster. Is rejected too strong? How about did not make the short-listing. The reasons for not making the grade is it was too ambitious for a new authority. In other words learn to walk before you can run.
I had a very interesting conversation with some of the document writers. Conversations like these are great; because it gives a better understanding of each others view points. In the document writers defence, the time-frame for the submission of this document was very tight. However, it does not get over the fact no one asked those elected for their views. It was a point accepted.
As they say ‘there is always next year’
