WHAT COULD A HUNG COUNCIL DO?

How unstable could local politics become when an elected council becomes hung?

If party politicians join independents on the cross-bench, would developments wanted by the public be more or less likely to be approved?

‘Presumed Dead’ is a novel by Martin Knox set in a fictional council chamber within the Westminster system. Corruption at the big end of town is suspected when Jane Kenwood, a feisty councillor, disappears.

DO YOU HAVE AN INDEPENDENT COUNCILLOR?

Independent candidates are listed below for Brisbane’s election of a new City Council on March 28th.

Great importance of independents in a fictitious City Hall political process is shown in my political crime fiction thriller ‘Presumed Dead’. After a crime involving a developer is solved, an independent councillor becomes mayor and the council adopts non-partisan processes,  preventing self-serving party control. The storyline is exciting with exciting topics of current public interest.
