The No campaign drew support from individuals in all political parties and as Joint Chairmen we would like to place on record out thanks to those people who helped with distributing our two leaflets; getting the message across to friends, family and work colleagues; and speaking up at community meetings where the issue was discussed.
The No Campaign based its argument around ten clear reasons why we believed that the ‘elected Mayor proposal’ was both dangerous to our democratic process and unnecessary. We deliberately did not personalise our campaign and made no reference at all to any of the individuals who had expressed an interest in running for the position should there have been a Yes vote. We concentrated our arguments solely on the facts and, judging from the feedback which reflected the overall result we won the argument hands down.
All of us have our different views about how the governance of Birmingham can be improved. It is right, and healthy for democracy, that we should always be looking for improvements in the way Birmingham is governed but now that the people have made their choice it is our intention to put the ‘No Campaign’ into ‘hibernation’. We are not going away and we will be constantly on our guard if there are further attempts to try and impose the idea of an ‘elected Mayor’ on Birmingham and the other great cities of England which also voted, decisively, No on the 3rd May.
Once again we express our sincere thanks to everybody helped in the campaign. Victory on the 3rd May is a tribute to all the work that was put in by everyone involved who can rightly feel proud of the stunning victory that was achieved.
This website has been produced by those who believe that the concentration of power into one person for four years means that ordinary Brummies will be ignored apart from the few months before an election every four years.
The current system means that citizens discuss issues with their councillors who can speak on their behalf in the Council Chamber. The City Leader has to have support from more than half of the councillors otherwise, he or she loses his or her job. The proposed system means that a City Leader remains in office for 4 years whatever people think.
Speakers for public meetings If you are arranging a public meeting and would like someone to speak then please contact John Hemming. We are happy to arrange for speakers, but would ask that a meeting has no more than 6 people on the panel and an equal number of speakers for and against the issue.
Actually two speakers each way is probably better than three. However, we can arrange for people to come and talk to you locally if given enough notice.
