Economy was recovering with Labour rule
I write in reference to Councillor Paul Crossley's comments on the council website, regarding council spending and the budget.
Councillor Crossley, Liberal Democrat representative of the Tory-led coalition, states, "Investing in economic growth to create new jobs, new homes, and new opportunities for local people is crucial".
For once we agree on something, however I can't help thinking this is an extraordinarily disingenuous statement, coming from a party which has spent the past three years criticising the former Labour government for doing just that.
This Tory/Lib Dem coalition has spent its whole time in office falsely blaming Labour for the global economic crises.

Despite the misleading and monotonous echo of their mantra, "the mess that Labour left us", the pure truth is, the economy was recovering at the end of the last Labour government.
And what has this government achieved? Absolutely nothing.
It has failed miserably on the economy, choking off growth and there has been no sign of recovery since.
Labour has repeatedly called for investment in jobs and infrastructure to get growth going. But instead of listening, the government has stormed on with a plan which causes millions of people pain, for no economic gain.
But recently the Lib Dems must have spotted the polls which show Labour has the biggest lead ever noted on You Gov since it was founded in 2002. The polls show Labour on 45 per cent a whole 15 points ahead of the Tories on 30 per cent … with the LibDems just two points ahead of UKIP on 11 per cent.
