One good moment from tonight's Unitary meeting came right at the end. During the presentations various images of Norwich flashed up on the screen - City Hall, St Peter Mancroft, the Forum, Gentleman's Walk and the Royal Arcade for example. At one point in his speech Council Leader Steve Morphew admitted that he was "a City boy" and knew little about the problems of rural areas. "Well", said one rural parish chair, "if you wanted to bring us country folk on side you'd have started by showing some good ol' country scenes on your screen instead of all this city stuff."

It seems that when it comes to Unitary - even the powerpoints - we can't please any of the people any of the time!
