On Thursday evening, I was at the full council meeting of Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to ask a question of the leader of the council.
This is actually quite a fun little feature. Any member of the public can ask a question to any member of the cabinet at any full council meeting. All you have to do is email it to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly marked as question to the executive. You get to go along and ask it yourself.
Anyway, I went along on Thursday, and asked a question to Cllr Ron Woodley (IND – Thorpe).
