I needn't have wasted my time. And the same goes for hundreds of others here in Stockwood. Every one of us objected to the proposed sell-off of publicly-owned green spaces in Stockwood.
Just one of the spaces - the 'Craydon Road North Open Space' - actually was saved.
But we can't even claim any part in that little victory. It wasn't us, all the credit must go to our LibDem candidate in the elections. One hundred per cent.
We know, because he says so. Repeatedly.
On his election literature....
On his blog....
.....and, apparently, on the doorstep.
For those who believe him, the conclusion is inescapable.
A Lib Dem administration will respond to one of its own candidates, while ignoring local councillors, community groups, and residents.
Best vote them out on Thursday, then.
