Local and National Politics

by David Walker on 20 November, 2017

Conservative Councillors complain that they cannot solve local problems because of constraints imposed by the central Conservative Government. “It’s not our fault gov” is the message. But if they cannot solve local problems because of Conservative Party policy then we, the voters, should make sure that they are defeated in local elections in order to convey a message to national government.

Local Councils should be able to borrow to build houses for rent. They used to be able to do so. The Conservative Party (supported by Developers, Estate Agents etc) is claiming that it can solve the problem by further removal of planning restrictions (designed to protect our landscape and to create workable communities) and by subsiding deposits (which allow people to pay more to the developers)

Every time a Lib Dem takes a seat from a Conservative Councillor a message is sent
