Why have Labour chosen to balance their budget by adopting charges that hit Southport far more than the rest of the borough?
Rising £500,000 extra from parking charges when 85% of all parking fees are raised in Southport
The green wheelie bin tax hits Southport
And they want to close our Libraries-leaving one in Southport and keeping three open in Bootle. (one Bootle Library only had 35 000 items issued in one year compared to 115 000 in the Birkdale Library-but it is Birkdale they have proposed to close)
This has given some folk the impression that they are willing to raise the money in Southport and spend it in Bootle
