Professor Richard Williams is right to identify the failings of the City Council, but it is the officials who should shoulder the blame for  years of incompetence.   The City Councillors think they have the power, but in effect the show is run by the officials who push, frighten and manipulate the Councillors in the most appalling manner.   The Council officers have been guilty of ignoring the ancient and historic attractions of the city in order to introduce their own pet projects.   Professor Williams points out areas where we need to do better, but meanwhile pollution increases, traffic congestion spirals out of control and the residents of the city are ignored.  Who will save us from our incompetent officials?   They seem adept at dodging the bullet.
