CAN someone tell me how we get rid of our council?

Over the past 20 years, the council has blown millions on the Barbican fiasco, the Hungate fiasco, Lendal Bridge, purple buses and expensive council offices.

It does not seem to make any difference which political party is running the council.

Maybe it is time to adopt the European system of an area authority, with for example Yorkshire making the big decisions based on sound economic sense.
