According to today's EEN, the Green Party are plotting to ban the use of goldfish as prizes at funfairs et al held on council property.
What a shame that the Greens, who have worked so hard to make themselves seem like an alternative council leadership, now choose to go down the route of bonkers politics - a roadmap normally held by the LibDems.
Or have I got this totally wrong? Please help me out here.
Is the sale or use of goldfish a major political issue? Nobody has mentioned it on the doorsteps yet the Greens are making headlines about it.
Forget the Quality Bus Partnership, the Unitary Bid, affordable housing, council tax levels, combating anti-social behaviour or improving recycling - we know what will be crossing the Chief Executive's desk on the first day of a Green-led City Council.
I can only assume that this was a silly publicity stunt by the Greens ... unless blog readers put me right on this.
