This is a crazy move in my opinion, the last thing cities need is more bureaucratic expense , this against a back drop of job loses , and austerity measures , ask any sane person on the street , do you need a mayor to bring work , jobs , finance , if the UK people stand for this , they will stand for anything. The salary for a mayor is £125 thousand minimum , this is like a slap in the face to honest hard working people , the government is not in the real world on this issue, no way , how many nurses , doctors ,care workers would that money pay for.........lots.

So all this is is some cities likely to vote in favour of having directly elected mayors (what sort of big city doesn't already have a mayor??) in referendums in May, and if they do so then the 1st elections will happen in November rather than some time next year?

What's the problem here??

Another layer of bureaucracy and more costs to the council tax payer.

Will it bring local democracy. That in itself is yet to be seen.

Lets hope the councils do not pay over the top for a mayors car, as some councils have done so far.
