OK, here's a quick post. Bristol Labour types have launched a petition for Bristol City Council to move to all-out four year elections. I've blogged on here many times before as to why I support this. We need clear leadership in Bristol, and the fact that we have one-thirds up every year just means that the Council is hampered by indecisiveness and timidity as soon as polling day comes into its sights (which is more or less about six months after a new administration takes over, unless of course it's a Lib Dem administration in which case it's as soon as the Focus leaflets have to be translated into political action). I would urge you to sign the petition but I've tried three times now and failed - it says 'unknown column "town" in field list'. Wil get Mr Cook on the case.
