Trash Talk

The Lib Dems have been in overdrive in Redlands, spreading lies that Labour has cut an end of year special collection of rubbish from student housing. Misleading residents and students alike, they even have a petition about it.

The truth is that the decision to axe this service was taken by RBC's Streetcare service last March when, erm, Lib Dem Cllr Ricky Duveen was the Lead Member for these services.

So the Redlands Lib Dems are petitioning to get a Lib Dem cut restored. Excellent politics! Obviously a case of being in power, but not in control.

Let's just see if they will start banging on people's doors to retract their slurs ... because we will certainly ensure that everyone knows when this was done!

I am confident that the Labour council will ensure the student clearances will be taken care of. Who can clean up the mess to Redlands Lib Dems' reputation may be a job too far.

On a lighter note, but just as expected, word reaches me that poor Cllr Glenn Goodall is being pushed aside in Redlands after just one term, to make way for the defeated Kirsten Bayes to have another try at winning an election next May.

If that's true, it's going to get very interesting!
