We've only just BEGUN
So the Chester council a labour led one that used the slogan for the many NOT the few, are now only listening to the few NOT the MANY who are tax paying voters.
Sneaking through during lockdown.
"Following discussions with local Members, Police and Parking services a permanent Traffic Regulation Order has been advertised with no objections."
Hmm. Seem to recall a petition objecting.
Not surprising we lost our council majority with this kind of undemocratic and absolutely idiotic nonsense.
The last deputy leader, now leader, made a statement once justifying NHS privatisation on environmental grounds. Now the current deputy leader ignores a democratic petition, and to my knowledge hasn't met with the people petitioning her over this issue.
