U-Turn If You Want To

When is a u-turn not a u-turn? When you're the Liberal Democrats.

They are today trumpeting the return of free garden waste collection with a leaflet plopping through the doors of Worcester Parkers.

Good old Liberal Democrats - giving the residents what they really want, unlike the nasty, erm, Liberal Democrats who introduced chargeable collections in the first place.

Well I suppose you can't blame them for trying to save a little face as the peasants of Sutton triumph over the evil council that tried to make them act responsibly with their garden refuse.

The Liberal Democrats. Listening. Responding. Capitulating.

Liberal DemocraYs?!?

Your comments echo my thoughts though. It was an unashamed effort to confuse you about who were the heroes and who were the villains in this whole charade.

i dont care really. theres nothing wrong in changing your mind , although i except that they havnt really put it that way in the flyer..
More importantly there was a section on this for signing a petition for saving our gardens.. its unreal how many folk have built driveways that are full block work or concreate with a token flower pot.... and are then suprised that we have flood problems when it rains.

Driveways. Yep. Definitely relevant.

Even more importantly than that, there was another section for signing a different petition to stop people writing irrelevant comments on blogs about drive ways!
