The New Tory Cabinet was introduced to the Council at the AGM on Tuesday. The newly Elected leader playing to the audience, chest out, announcing the first ever fully Tory Cabinet on NELC. Yet doing three U-turns on previous positions, was visibly annoyed that he and his cabinet were challenged by the Labour group.
Well they might as well get use to it, they have not brought any new policy to Council and are running with Labour’s economic plans, plans for integrated social care and plans to update Cleethorpes, to name a few.
Unfortunately, we haven’t given the Council Officers the next stages of our plans to drive our economic revival, What will the Tories do! we wait in anticipation, but don’t hold your breath I can’t see them bringing any fresh Ideas.
A point to note, on the way into the town hall there was two people handing out letters in support of keeping the Community Learning service open. One Tory Councillor refused to take the letter but reluctantly did so in the end.. Listening to the public, I think not!
