Now for all of you out there who think I have a downer on the Labour Party here’s a positive story I’m happy to promote.

Firstly, I should say that one of my big issues with Labour on Merseyside has always been their lack of environmental/green credentials. You only have to look at the troubles in both Knowsley and Liverpool Councils where building on parks and green spaces has actually been promoted by Labour. Their approach to Sefton’s Local Plan adoption process, where they seemed to look upon environmental campaigners as nothing but a bloody nuisance, also comes to mind as an example of my concerns.

But credit where it’s due this plastic pollution position adopted by Labour-run Sefton Council is a step in the right direction. Oh and by the way the minutes of the meeting where the motion was agreed say that all present (of differing political parties) supported it.

With thanks to Roy Connell for the lead to this posting.
