Decision bound to cause a row

Decision bound to cause a row

Mayor elect Chris Mayne

Mayor elect Chris Mayne

ON one level you can understand why Bournemouth’s mayor elect Chris Mayne would want to appoint his own grandson as official scout. Most of us would do absolutely anything for our grandchildren. On a more practical level, he might well have anticipated that his decision would cause a bit of a row, put a few noses out of joint and spark comments of favouritism and bypassing the usual procedures. Compromise has been reached and peace has broken out but the new first citizen will surely have learned a thing or two about protocol. We wish him all the best for his year, starting today.
