I have just been telephoned by an irate sounding lady from York Rd (Risbygate ward) who wanted to know whom to speak to to get a residents' parking scheme.
"Well I'm not your councillor, I'm afraid. You really need to speak to one of them. I'd like to help, but I have enough on my plate trying to deal with my own 3,500 residents' concerns."
"Oh have I got to phone a bloody councillor?"
"Well, a councillor, anyway. Do you know who they are?"
"Yes - Chris Turner".
At which point I said goodbye.
