Letter: More hypocrisy

Date published: 14 September 2017

Dear Editor,

Once again we see Councillor Farnell on the national stage showing breathtaking hypocrisy at the Co-op meeting.

This quote sticks in my throat:

"We're committed to finding better ways of working with local people."

Care to explain why you gave the market charter to an out of area company and not a local Co-op group?

Both against your statement and the Co-op ideal.

You so happlily to push for the money and expenses and self promotion over the poor town, whilst all the while you chant desperately it is the fault of Central Government for the desperate state our town is in.

Modern day King Canute really. 

Councillor Farnell, you and the Council do not even come close to representing the Co-op ideas. The over whelming evidence of your actions proves it.
