Cllr Bluh has made a public apology and considers this the worst council meeting he has attended. Cllr Foley asks public to continue to engage despite tonights display by the council.

Why because he and this council can be seen for what it is?

Perhaps they should recognise the coming storm, that has been set in motion by the actions of this morally bankrupt, dishonest, secretive and discredited administration.

As for volunteers, surely the thing you ought to do is listen to them, its only good manners after all.

Volunteers actually require more mangement and support than paid employees and have to feel genuinely valued for the contribution they make. They aren't just a free pool of labour! Really hard, as a council bod, to know how we start engaging the community now when we've repeatedly treated them so sh*ttily in the past.

The description of the council meeting is embarrassing. I can't believe that councillors (and the worshipful mayor of Swindon himself) could treat the public with such disdain, disrespect and contempt. They should issue a formal apology immediately.

I am bemused that you are suprised as they have always treated the opposition and their own backbenchers in the same way.So no change there then
