Lib Dems not averse to hijacking ideas
I NOTE that Simon Higginson takes the time to read the Ely Standard and seems to listen to his constituents. It is a pity that he continues to exaggerate and fails to understand simple concepts. However, I am pleased that the Lib Dems have done a U-turn
I NOTE that Simon Higginson takes the time to read the Ely Standard and seems to listen to his constituents. It is a pity that he continues to exaggerate and fails to understand simple concepts. However, I am pleased that the Lib Dems have done a 'U-turn' with regards to the car park at Angel Drove.
He invites me to check the facts, which I have done. However, I do not propose to bore readers with minutiae, (we said this, and they said that), but, suffice to say, most of the good people of Ely are fully aware of the history of Lib Dems objecting to all ideas.
However, they are not averse to hijacking an idea or proposal if the public seem to like it.
I re-examined the language used in my letter last week and could not find anything that was immoderate. The only comment that could have given offence was my observation, 'who can object to such a sensible plan'?

Perhaps a political party with an agenda that will lead to the strangulation of Ely? I did not even mention the Lib Dems but if the cap fits wear it.
He now claims to care about spending £1m on a project that most people think is
- 1 Residents told 'not to approach' illegal encampment
- 2 Hundreds sign petition in support of pub's cup of positivi-tea
- 3 Marathon runner passes through Cambs on route to Kathmandu
- 4 Jail for 'predator' who raped vulnerable woman in children's play park
- 5 'It was as if Covid didn't exist' - Latitude-goers report positive tests
- 6 Fire crews called to stables building blaze
- 7 Photographer Dan flies high after winning national competition
- 8 Handcuffed duo prepare to make London Marathon history
- 9 Lorry driver who died in B1085 crash named
- 10 10-year-old's sponsored hair cut for Little Princess Trust
But when his party were in control of East Cambs during 1998-2002 they thought nothing about spending in excess of £7m, from carefully saved reserves, on projects that no one can remember and appear to have little value to Ely now.
His sneering comments seems to imply that being a former Conservative candidate is an insult, but I do not see it that way. I am, as well as others, working for a prosperous future on behalf of Ely.
We want Council Tax to be spent efficiently, on worthy projects for the advantage of all.
