Gagging Council

I have followed with great surprise and little amusement the saga that seems to be causing issues at Adelaide City Council. The most recent of which is the passing of a motion that will see councillors disallowed from talking directly to the press regarding any ideas that they have for change in Council. Under the new rules they are forbidden (the majority have agreed to forbid) from speaking to the press until the proposed motion is in the publicly available agenda. This looks like a gag order. I hope that Unley councillors feel free to speak their minds to the press while ensuring that they make it clear that the ideas are their own and have not been endorsed by council at anytime they see fit.
