Oh dear! Diviani is described as “strong and stable”!

“Councillor Mark Williamson proposed Councillor Paul Diviani as Leader of the Council for the ensuing year. This proposal was seconded by Councillor Brian Bailey.

In proposing, Councillor Mark Williamson spoke highly of Councillor Diviani’s leadership during the many challenges which had faced the Council over the years he had been Leader and of his faith in Councillor Diviani’s ability to lead though future challenges. He undertook the role calmly, purposefully and with intelligence and was a strong and stable leader.”
