Many of us were profoundly disappointed when websites like LibDemWatch and FibDems ceased.
You know how it is - you have a nagging sense that many LibDems are basically bonkers, and when allowed a sniff of power promote all kinds of lunacy upon a hitherto unsuspecting public. Without the regular evidence on the net, however, we have been forced to pick up such scraps as we could - who can forget the LibDem plan to teach children how to graffiti on buildings, for example?
Good news, therefore from Newcastle that my NPF colleague Cllr. Nick Forbes has an excellent website which lays bare the incompetence at the heart of the LibDem administration there. Whether it's the LibDems' support for battery farmed eggs, or eye-watering car parking charge increases, or their slashing of the apprenticeship and training budget ot stopping church groups from collecting money, Nick's site has it all.
Nick is the excellent leader of the Labour Group on the city council, and his website should be a 'must read' for anyone wondering what it's like to actually be governed by the LibDems at local level. It's sobering stuff!
