The CIS has long been a supporter of strengthening local government, looking forward to “this Tocquevillian vision of a free people organising its own local affairs in autonomy,” in the words of former CIS research fellow Dr Oliver Marc Hartwich.
However, there’s a difference between de Tocqueville, and making videos.
These are all very well. They recognise local achievements, and provide an important means of spreading good ideas.
However, as always, there’s a catch.
WasteWatch has no problems with the awards and their attendant costs, but are the videos really necessary?
