No show Tory saga a disgrace

Sir - The attendance record, behaviour and attitude of councillor Smith are a total and utter disgrace. His lamentable attendance record and lamentable performance as a councillor mean that residents of his ward lack the proper representation and support they deserve. It is entirely impossible to do the job

properly just by email.

If councillor Smith were employed by a normal type of employer he would have been subject to regular disciplinary action for his attendance and performance in the job.

Inevitably and justifiably, this would result in his dismissal.

Another problem we have is the political party he belongs to. The council leader and the Conservative party appear to condone his performance and continue to support him in his elected office. This, in itself, is also an utter disgrace.
