The Tories in Action
57 jobs are going, along with all the deflationary impact that has upon our local economy, and the services that will suffer. They are going because this Conservative council relies for its direction on the word of a finance organisation shown to be wholly incapable of doing its job, and which has accepted that the views, used by the Chief Executive to justify the council’s approach, need tighter regulation to stop them being used in precisely this damaging way.
The alternative might have been to look at the council’s own balance sheet.
But that would have given the Tories the wrong answer.
