“Rochdale Council should hang its head in shame”
I normally like to be positive, so I’m sorry for using that negative phrase. With Rochdale Council under Liberal Democrat control since 2006, you might think that phrase comes straight from a Labour or Tory leaflet. No, it comes from a leaflet put out by the Lib Dems themselves.
The latest Lib Dem spin is to put out leaflets highlighting problems with ‘The Council’. The leaflets are full of ‘The Council’ this and ‘The Council’ that – as if it were nothing to do with them!
The Lib Dems have run your council for the last 4 years, so any bad news from ‘The Council’ is Lib Dem bad news.
‘The Lib Dem Council’ failed to grit our roads during the bad winter weather and wants to destroy lovely green fields at Birch, Hareshill and Langley Lane and use them for industry.
‘The Lib Dem Council’ closed care centres like Saxonside that looked after elderly and ill people and treated residents of Springfield Close in a most disgusting manner over their warden.
‘The Lib Dem Council’ slashed the pay of many front line council staff in the pay and regrading review, whilst wasting £2 million of YOUR council tax on fancy spin doctors in the media unit.
So, please don’t be hoodwinked by the Lib Dem attempt to insult your intelligence. They run ‘The Council’- they are responsible for its failures.
Sorry about the negative bit. Here are some of the things I’ve been doing as your local councillor:
Regardless of which party you normally support. I ask for your support on May 6th so that I may continue to work on your behalf.
