Eco-Champion: The sequel

CAMDEN Council’s energetic ‘eco-champion’ Alexis Rowell is not standing for re-election in Belsize ward but the Liberal Democrats I’ve spoken too don’t seem to think it’s a major crisis for their first team. I gather there are plans to appoint a new ‘eco-champion’ in the next administration who would work alongside a new ‘executive member for sustainability’ at the Town Hall, should the party maintain its hefty share of power at the May 6 elections. In fact, the Lib Dems are planning a greener than ever agenda for the post-Rowell era which will aim to cut carbon emissions across Camden by 40 percent by 2020.

    The Lib Dems have been faffing on this for 4 years because of their HR problems with Alexis, while their green agenda was blocked by the Tories.

    What’s the point in having two posts, apart from the two salaries enabling the Lib Dems to ‘payroll’ a backbencher. Why not just give the portfolio holder a proper job description, a buddget and some proper powers?
