Climate Emergency Manchester news

After the excitement (yes, we know we need to get out more, but there is a pandemic going on) of Scrutiny Week, last week’s big event for us was this corking piece by Robbie Watt about the flooding in Northenden/Didsbury.

Later on this week we will be publishing our latest “emotional rescue” post, where core group members weigh in on an emotion – this time, it’s hate.

We will also be publishing a great “Year Ahead” blog post from our friends at GND Podcast.

We are also busy with preparation for our appearance at the Resources and Governance Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday 9th February, where we will be explaining the rationale for last year’s petition for a seventh scrutiny committee.

Council news

There is a question mark hanging like the sword of Damocles over the Thursday 6th May date for Local Elections – the expectation is that these will be pushed back to autumn. This will doubtless delight those councillors who were hoping to stand down… 18 months ago.  Watch this space.
