He wasn’t chosen by the people but by a powerful inner circle at a private meeting.
We call this a dictatorship.
Yesterday Cllr Tony Johnson became the new leader of Herefordshire.
Johnson wasn’t chosen by the people of this county but by a powerful group of Conservative councillors at a private meeting.
His appointment is expected to be approved at the full council meeting on 24th May where, again, only councillors will have a say – the balance of power lying firmly with the ruling Conservative group.
We call this democracy.
What’s the difference?
