Editorials from Issue 1

It is the editor's opinion that local government behaves much more efficiently when under strict scrutiny, but enforcing that scrutiny is a miserable pastime. Many of Glossop's current problems have arisen because of decades of incompetence in planning and development, party political divisions and, worst of all, a governing body based in Buxton. To a large extent Glossop has lost pride in itself, and "local" government has become distant and almost utterly unaccountable. Glossop gets the governance it deserves.
