Good Riddance

Heard a great quote today attributed to Tony Benn.

Reinforcing the point that local politicians must be judged at the ballot box, he stressed that the questions the public should be asking their local politicians were:

"What power have you got?
"Where did you get it?"
"How do you exercise it?"
"To whom are you accountable?"

and lastly...

"How do we get rid of you?"
