Council democracy needs contractors


In 37 years as a full member I have only once known any of the candidates standing for election to the ICE council. My standby in previous years was to vote for contractors, as being one myself, I regard our tribe to be the best. But this year there were no contractors.

Democracy would be strengthened by increasing the number of area representatives on the Council at the expense of those elected from membership as a whole.
