Local democracy

Talking with our local councillors, I have learned some of the realities of governing locally under Labour.

At any moment, there are apparently tens of central government inspectors in any one of our counties’ local government organisations, checking up on the staff, trying to ensure uniform outcomes. And we wonder where the money goes…

Labour simply do not know how to cut bureaucracy. A recent promise to reduce the district council’s performance indicator count from around a thousand to 198 sounded great, but all 198 PIs had around 5 parts…

This is just rubbish. Public money is being squandered wasting people’s time and suppressing local people’s ability to deal with local problems effectively.

Thank goodness people are noticing that this is the price of Labour and that there is a serious, credible alternative.
