There was a letter in the Daily Telegraph (scroll down the link to see the letter) yesterday claiming:
"Conservative authorities have been committed, as always, to efficient and low-cost public services."
and it was signed by 35 Conservative Council leaders. Wisely there was no mention of Thanet Leader Cllr. Sandy Ezekiel joining the list of signatories, as nobody can claim Thanet District Council is either efficient or low-cost.
It is to these Conservatives credit that they confirm what local people know.
