Cllr Isabelle Linington responds to ‘Progressive Alliance’ for Lewes District

Cllr Isabelle Linington says in response to announcement of a ‘Progressive Alliance’ for Lewes District:

The Conservatives are the largest group on Lewes District Council and as such it is essential that we continue to provide the stability and consistency that our residents need and expect.

This hotchpotch of an alliance is doomed to failure.   

Cllr Nicholson and Cllr MacCleary are playing fast and loose with public services - they can’t even agree on who will lead this alliance and have fudged it by taking turns.

I would urge all councillors to pause, reflect and step away to avoid leaving the council in a shambolic mess. 

The Conservative's record for cross-party working is second to none and I’ve already made it clear that we will continue to listen to any individual councillor or group that brings forward constructive ideas for our district.

Local people living across the district deserve council leadership that they can trust and have confidence in, not a political recipe for disaster.
