Sefton's capital programme

Even before the present financial crisis Sefton Lib Dems have been anxious that the capital programme that the council was following was unaffordable. this led us to move ammendments to last years budget to review some schems. Sadly the Tories voted with Labour and things have gone ahead, We have another round of reviewing the capital budget at the cabinet meeting on Thursday and I hopwe that at least one other party on the council will see sense.

Readers will remember that our Tory leadership have not been conspicuous in demonstrating thrift and when the former Chief Exec proposed removing a number of senior posts and stram lining the council's management they ganged up with Labour defeat the suggestion.  You can read more about those events by following the stories tagged below.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
