Burnside battles on…and on…and on

September 21, 2017

The memory is still so strong that it could  have happened a few weeks ago…

Sitting alongside a political acquaintance of mine, we watched in disbelief as paper darts and agendas flew into the Burnside Council Chamber from the agitated public gallery. Tipped the wink that the boys in blue were on their way to restore calm and dignity to the civic proceedings, we edged our way to the exit and safety.

Fast forward a few years and it seems that nothing has changed to Unley’s north-east, with former mayor Jim Jacobsen forcibly removed  after refusing to stop interjecting and interrupting the most recent  Council meeting.

Seems Mr Jacobsen was venting his spleen at what he claimed was “payback” for his public support of Councillor Lance Bagster, who has been accused of an “horrendous” campaign against senior  Burnside staff and elected members.

Watch this space.
