Labour letting the town down - Lib Dems say
1:00pm Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in News
A SENIOR Liberal Democrat has accused Labour of ‘failing’ the town and says the group is in ‘meltdown’.
Clr Bob Barr (Lymm) says Labour is wasting the work his party did when in power.
He added: “Their lack of vision is characterised by the weak advert for a new chief executive which describes Warrington as ‘Big enough to cope’. “Is that really all they aspire to for Warrington? To cope? Warrington is a town that can thrive and shine, not just cope.”
And he hit out at their plans for the town, saying there are no coherent plans for health, education and social care and that there has been a failure to revive the fortunes of the town centre.
He added: “They allow their new young councillors to waste time in council meetings putting fatuous motions in favour of motherhood and apple pie, so they can insult the government.
“There are no easy answers but despite the difficulties, the current administration in the Town Hall is letting Warrington down.
“We are prepared to work with the current administration for what we jointly believe to be right. “Sadly, their weak leadership, the infighting and the lack of any coherent policy are making this difficult.”
