Labour Chauffeur Shame

Sir Richard Leese will keep his chauffeur driven car after his comrades in the Labour Party opposed a Lib Dem plan to end the contract. The Scrutiny Committee split on party lines, with the single Tory Councillor abstaining, despite his colleagues in the City criticising the chauffeur in party literature.

I think that given the current recession, people in the city will see this as Labour wasting money on chauffeurs and posh cars. A Chauffeur driven car for the Council Leader is not something Council Tax Payers should pay for. Labour Town Hall bosses are out of touch and have forgotten who serves whom.

I am very proud that the Manchester Liberal Democrats will make a manifesto commitment to reverse this decision should we be come to power in the City.
