Kemp, who looks increasingly likely to defeat Fireman Bradley in the battle to be Leader of Liverpool city council, is determined to set a good example to our citizens.
He has already made it clear to Lib Dim colleagues that he intends to develop long-term strategies (and he has got tons of strategies, ed) against teenage obesity, under-age drinking and anti-social behaviour.
And he has pledged to personally launch a new crusade to clean up the city centre's streets so that families can enjoy them.
Interesting then, that in the Local Government Association’s First magazine, Cllr Kemp, has written about his own personal activities with refreshing frankness.
Here is one fascinating extract: “Life at a Lib-Dem conference is gruelling. We start meetings from 8am and finish drinking at 7am! "We train and drink, we talk and drink, we pass resolutions and drink, we sometimes drink and pass resolutions – which is not thought to be in the right order. But we do work hard!”
How reassuring it is to know that our great city is going to be in the hands of such a fine, responsible and upstanding leader.
