The Government are to set up a commission to investigate why there are relatively fewer ethnic minority, young or women councillors.
I'm not going to patronise anyone here by stating the obvious reasons for this, and I am sure it doesn't need a commission.
Surely the reasons are the same as to why there are so few ethnic minorities and women in senior management posts ? And erm, I wonder why so many young people are not interested in politics. Could that be a reason why they don't actually want to be politicians ?
