Coalition of Cock-ups


Is it me, or do our local Lib Dem and Conservative Councils appear to have joined together in a coalition of cock-ups?

The latest, as reported in The Review this week, is the £100,000 fine the Tory-run County Council has scooped for faxing "extremely personal" information to the wrong number. Twice. Before that, the same council lost a fortune in the Icelandic bank collapse, despite being advised their investments were less than safe.

But how Lib Dem Councillor White can single out the Tories for criticism is beyond me. He is a prominent member of the Lib Dem-run District Council, which recently oversaw the loss of sensitive information about thousands of residents, then chose a contractor on the verge of financial collapse to build the new Westminster Lodge, and is currently wasting £800,000 of our money on keeping Bricket Wood pool closed.

Councillor White calls for the guilty councillor at County Hall to go. Why doesn't he hold his own colleagues to the same standard?
