About This Blog

The public should know all we can about the business of the decision makers that affect our lives, our wallets and our democracy. This is a record of my efforts to try and improve the levels of transparency and accountability within Sheffield City Council and others. To shine a light on how decisions are made and where the money goes. If I can also help others to find their own voice and influence along the way, then that is a bonus.

Town Hall -v- Whitehall, The Devolution Debate.

Bank Holiday Monday and I was invited in to the Sheffield Live studios to promote this Wednesday's Festival of Debate event. Devolution is one of the hot topics for the General Election and the Devolution Debate has been organised by Now Then Magazine and myself as an opportunity for people to learn more about what devolution might mean for our city. It will also give members of the public the chance to question some knowledgable panellists about the options and consequences we may be faced with after the election in May.
The interview was on the 'Communities Live' programme, broadcast at 12 noon and it starts at 8 minutes 45 seconds in.

The full details of all the Festival of Debate events for April are here


and there is still time to book your place for Wednesday's Devolution Debate. It takes place at the United Reformed Church on Norfolk Street, in the city centre, at 7.30pm and it's Free entry.

Two politicians, two community activists and two academics on the panel with a broad range of experience and opinion. I'll be hosting the event and trying to keep them all on topic and under control. I hope to see you there.
