It's been a fairly intense news week hasn't it? So we've decided to have some fun at the expense of the movers and shakers who could possibly end up as Council Leader in the near future!
What we want you to do is to pick an Election Anthem for the contenders for the cities number one post.
Below are my suggestions but we want your suggestions and let's have some fun on this one!
Joy Garner & Debra Gratton - "Sisters are Doing It For Themselves!" (Aretha Franklin)
Mark Meredith - "Leaving on a Jet Plane" (John Denver) or Don't Look Back In Anger (Oasis)
Mervin Smith - " To Know Him is To Love Him" (The Teddy Bears)
Mike Barnes - The Winner Takes It All (Abba) or We are the Champions (Queen)
Adrian Knapper - Tears of a Clown (Smokey Robinson)
Roger Ibbs - Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word (Elton John)
Ross Irving - The Man Who Sold The World (David Bowie)
Mike Wolfe - I'm a Pink Tooth Brush (Max Bygraves)
Mark Davis - Puppet on a String (Sandie Shaw)
Peter Kent Baguley - Back in the USSR (The Beatles
Alan Rigby - Making Your Mind Up (Bucks Fizz)
Terry Follows - Follow You Follow Me ( Genesis)
Alby Walker - The Immigrant Song ( Led Zeppalin)
Mike Coleman - Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Tears For Fears)
Steve Batkin - I was Kaiser Bills Batman (Whistling Jack Smith) or I Predict a Riot (Kaiser Chiefs)
There are loads more, but you get the idea right? So it's over to you and remember it's all for fun but as Nick Lowe said in 1979 - You Gotta Be Cruel To Be Kind..........................................................

The best I can offer to the whole sorry state of affairs is, Forgotten Town by the Christians.

This is exactly what we will become if things and people don't start to change..

Councillor Knapper is far from a clown, he just has fools around him upon the EMB who did not listen to his quality views especially around BSF when he argued for schools in the community with a new school at Mitchell to replace Mitchell/Berryhill, a new school to replace Blurton/Ensor and Trentham forming a federation with one governing body with St.Joseph (Bring some of the 272 out of 110 who do not secure places at St. Joseph to boast the numbers at Trentham). In the private EMB briefing every time he tried to make a valid point Fibbs just translate things into hot waffle. Adrian is a genuine person…….he can’t help it if he’s surround by idiots.

I'm afraid I haven't got the imagination for this, but it's hilarious reading.
