Conservative Local Government Conference 2015

2015_02_06 David Cameron at CCA Conference 2015Last Friday Cllr. Robin Millar and I made our annual pilgrimage to the Conservative Councillors Conference, where Conservative Local Government reasonably informally meets with Conservative Ministers and discusses the issues we face.

The Prime Minister opened the Conference and talked about the Conservative Campaign ahead and reflected on the 5 years of hard work undertaken to get this Country financially back on track and start to grow our economy. I tweeted about this and mentioned that this is the same stronger economy where Ed Balls could not name a single Business Leader to back Labour! It’s often said that Business Leaders are not listened too by the voting Public but I think that myth was blown in the Scottish Referendum whereas the final weeks approached Business Leaders did speak up against Devolution and people did listen. A strong growing economy is what is getting us out of Labour’s last financial mess of a government and Labour are simply not to be trusted with it.

Obviously much talk was of the coming local elections and again we have a strong message about managing the cuts we are having to absorb and still delivering those vital services our resident’s demand of us. It is Conservative Councils that are doing this and doing this without Labour’s default of tax, tax, tax.

Talking of Labour’s fiscal irresponsibility, just before I left for the Conference I receive the email from Suffolk County Council detailing Labours fiscally incompetence in the form of their budget amendments, the debate and vote on our proposal for another 0% Council tax increase is this afternoon and I shall blog a few thoughts on this over the coming days! If we win then its 5 years in a row of 0% increases, wow! in real terms an actual cut, taking less of people hard earned money and doing what we can to help hard pressed families cope with their bills.
