The term "Self Promotion" is a bit ambiguous. Is it on promoting the council or promoting the area of the country. I'm assuming it means the council itself in this instance and therefore I don't see the point, so using BG as some sort of shining example compared to Carmarthen is like saying Nasty Mr X mugged 4 people, whereas good old Mr Y only mugged 1. Plus for all we know Carmarthen might have 5 times as many councillors as BG or ten times the budget. To tell the truth its a typical "local rag" report.
