Response to Emrys (Reply #4)

5. One other poll I forgot about

Is the referendum here in Sheffield about changing the local council from a "strong leader" model to a committee system that involves the whole council instead of a few cabinet members.

It's been in the offing for a while, brought on by the high handed behaviour of the Labour group on the council. Especially with regards to the Amey / PFI fiasco. To be honest it's a foregone conclusion as the committee system is backed by all the other parties and even a fair few Labour folk are jumping on the committee system bandwagon. Nobody is speaking out in support of the strong leader model.
