I have to point out that the Lib Dems have had the majority of the seats on St Neots Town Council for 16 years or more, apart from a short spell in 2003/4 when the council was hung nine all: however the Lib Dems still had the casting vote during that time.

When I was a town councillor, it was my proposal to appoint consultants for the cinema, and it was also my proposal to look at selling off small pieces of land to raise money - a proposal that was strongly criticised by the Lib Dems in a full page advertisement in local papers.

What a shame that the Lib Dems could not have co-operated with some of these ideas in the past, and proceeded with them sooner
