OH dear! Councillor Rod Kennedy has been a naughty boy and refused to "toe the party line". (Crow, June 22). Slap his wrist and suspend him in the corner.

Come on you councillors, you have been elected by the people of Royston and work for them, not to play party politics.

I have been around long enough to remember when there were independent councillors who were free to stand up and express their views without reference to a rule book.

Sadly, those days are long gone, but not for the better.
