After wasting millions, Conservative Wiltshire Council hopes that suckers from its 'Big Society' will help out by taking over the running
of council services.
Tory-controlled Wiltshire Council is top-down and is used to pushing out BS.
Having wasted £5 million of our council tax money through persisting with its rotten Eastern Bypass project, Wiltshire Council since
determined on false economies such as dropping Senior Railcards and wanting to drop Westbury Swimming Pool because our Big
Society Council says that it is unaffordable. Conservative Wiltshire Council also hopes to close our public conveniences.
Local response has been hostile. Wilts residents want the facilities which they pay council tax for.
Widespread scepticism about WC's attitude to local opinion has been endorsed by seeing it twisted around. Though
most seem indifferent.
Many people expect a few to do it all for them. The Tory Big Society concept is an extension of this, based upon
the principle that the time of ordinary people who play their part in society is of little account and is there to be exploited.
Making council staff redundant and paying them off is counter-productive.
It is very wrong for unpaid volunteers to displace other people's employment.
The Conservatives at County Hall, or in Government, have no mandate for cuts in services and jobs. Their dud
plans should be exposed - and not bailed out.
