Official: Tories run the ‘worst council in England’

A Government Inspector’s report published today into Conservative run Northamptonshire County Council says its findings have very serious implications for local residents across our county.  

Commenting Councillor Chris Lofts says: “Local Liberal Democrats welcome the inspector’s report. It confirms what we have been saying since 2015. The inspector correctly identifies problems started when Children’s Services were lead so disastrously by a Cabinet Member who at the time represented Brackley.

South Northamptonshire has been run by the Tories for years and have failed to stand up for our local countywide services and protect the most vulnerable.  Liberal Democrats have repeatedly called for unitary government across Northamptonshire. Lib Dems cautioned South Northamptonshire Council that the operational merger of services and staff with Cherwell had risks if NCC continued to fail. The financial savings made for SNC might now cost local taxpayers many millions if services and staff have to be disentangled, as part of a new local government structure.

The next time voters visit the polling station they should remember the damning report that confirms local Tories have run the ‘worst council in England’.”

I seem to remember commenting on the Cherwell/SNC amalgamation some months back.

To repeat my concern, local councils were set up to manage their local areas and as nothing has radically changed in this respect it seemed to me a nonsense to combine the two areas. Once again, finance was the driving force, not the public's well being. When will our public authorities realise that the "bottom line" is not always the objective in supplying public services. Financial managers should advise, not dictate policy. More money for our services is a necessity and should be raised in council taxation. NCC's glorying in having "the lowest council tax in the country" has certainly proved to be frankly stupid. SNC/Cherwell should take heed

Let us hope that the fall out from the NCC debacle will not spill our way.
