To be a true partnership their has to be a level of equality but to quote George Orwell "everyone is equal but the pigs are more equal than others."

In truth this cannot be considered either a community based project or a partnership

For example both councils make donations to charitable organisations. if they can shift those grants on to the NWS gra…
