Why not re­verse de­ci­sions?

Halifax Courier - - The Week In Court -

Calderdale Coun­cil put a mi­nor­ity ad­min­is­tra­tion in post at last May’s an­nual meet­ing. Surely its proper course on find­ing it­self at vari­ance with that Labour set-up on one or two rel­a­tively small is­sues was sim­ply to re­verse th­ese de­ci­sions? To bring down the whole struc­ture re­minded me of the tale by Charles Lamb about burn­ing a house down in or­der to ob­tain some roast pork to eat. One may won­der whether our lo­cal Con-Dem coali­tion was tempted to re­cover the Cabi­net pay­ments which it in­tro­duced a decade ago against prin­ci­pled Labour ar­gu­ments to keep coun­cil work vol­un­tary, with only sub­sis­tence-ex­penses and loss-ofearn­ings claimable. We need to re­gain that spirit of ser­vice.
