Political games

Yesterday's South Wales Evening Post reports that a request for action at a children's playground has been put on hold because it was deemed too political.

Coedffranc Community Council had a letter from regional AM Peter Black asking it to consider upgrading the equipment at the park in Jersey Marine.

However, it was pointed out that an election candidate for the area had made claims about the park in an election leaflet.

Members had previously agreed not to discuss any political issues during meetings held in the run-up to the election.

Instead they decided the council's finance committee should consider Mr Black's letter.

The committee will not meet until after next Thursday's elections.

God forbid that a Community Council should involve itself in politics, even for the sake of upgrading a children's playground. But why are they meeting during an election period anyway? Have they not heard of purdah?
