Change of Heart over Ward Working
My colleague Cllr Lesley Jones points out that the Liberal Democrats opposition to ward working is rather different to what they said during the 2010 elections. Both the Tories and the Liberal Democrats are claiming to oppose ward working, while trying to claim credit for the various local schemes funded through the budget. When they do so, we shall have to remind people that they have repeatedly tried to have the whole scheme scrapped.
