#QuackCWaC Council fiddle with constitution whilst democracy burns

Our council wanted to add a few amendments to their constitution recently, including
  • A ban on public recording and filming of their meetings. 
  • Force members of the public, who wished to speak at a meeting, to submit details days in advance. 
  • Change the percentage of votes need to remove their leader from office from a simple majority to two thirds.
Anyone who has been watching #QuackCWaC Council meetings over this last couple of months will understand why they wanted to introduce these amendments.

Here is an example of what they are trying to stop with such amendments.
