Opinion
Cllr Daniel Yates, Labour leader of Brighton and Hove City Council

Daniel Yates: Sometimes we get things wrong and admit defeat

Councillors aren’t always right. This might come as a shock to some (although many people tell me we are never right), but as ordinary residents ourselves we can’t always foresee the impact of particular decisions.
