From Militancy to Mandy Rice-Davies!
Thats how Wirral Council’s meeting last night may have come across to the packed gallery with Prenton Labour Councillor, Tony Norbury telling Council how he wants to rid the country of Conservatives and Lib Dems wearing his coat of crimson red, to Seacombe Labour Councillor likening Conservative Group Leader to moments that he believed to be Mandy Rice-Davies. Quite what both had to do with the budget process was beyond me and others.
Anyway as predicted the Labour Council rejected both the Conservative and Lib Dem amendment and voted to increase Council Tax by 2% whilst at the same time rejecting a £1.3 million grant from Government, putting £270,000 into its budget so the Council Taxpayer can fund full time union stewards and closing a Day Centre which will hit some of the most vulnerable in our society
One thing is for certain, while I am an elected Member this Labour controlled Council do not, and never will speak in my name!
