Sutton visits

Posted by davidburbage on September 30, 2009

My opposite number from the London Borough of Sutton came to call yesterday. Paul Scully is, with great credit, visiting a number of Conservative Councils that have been achieving great things so he can construct a good plan for his elections in London next year.

When we were in opposition, we visited Wandsworth to see how they did things. Our Libdems tried to find things that were bad about Wandsworth to prove that we shouldn’t learn from them.

We didn’t visit Sutton….

On a related note, I see that the LibDems are continuing to advertise for candidates┬ásaying “you don’t need to be an expert on council matters or politics”.

Good thing airlines don’t advertise like this – “Pilots wanted, help us fly our planes to exotic destinations, expertise not necessary!”

Now I’m not saying you need years of training, but it does help to know something about how Government works if you want to be running it. Local Government is hard.

So it’s no wonder they’re a complete shambles (like Labour have been nationally, incidentally) when they do achieve power!
