You don’t need me to tell you that Sefton Central Labour is in one hell of a mess at present because:-
7, yes 7 of their councillors have resigned in recent times
They are fighting pitched battles with people who are trying to defend the Green Belt
Their proposed Green Bin tax is about as popular as snow at Harvest!
But now the panic button has really been pressed hard as the comrades try to make out that black is white over the Green Bin tax and just about everything else. In a move that surely shows political fear (something you should never show to the opposition, I would add) they have produced a leaflet which is circulating in Maghull that is so over the top it is laughable.
As we all know (and this is on public record) Labour run Sefton Council proposed in its 2013/14 budget to introduce a Green Bin tax; a budget that Lib Dem councillors opposed.
Now, on the basis that if you are going to tell untruths tell whoppers, how about a Labour claim that ‘Labour has binned the Lib Dem proposals to introduce a green bin tax which would have hit us here in Maghull hardest’! From ‘which would have hit us in Maghull hardest’ I agree with but to claim that Lib Dems proposed a Green Bin tax and that Labour binned it is turning black into white!
How rattled can you get to try to pretend that your own policy which has proved so unpopular is that of another party!
