Target Nick

I WELL remember the strong Lib Dem campaigning a decade or two ago against possible library closures and cutbacks.

Accordingly, I have refused to respond to the current Calderdale Council questionnaire on where the axe should now fall.

Clearly the Lib Dem leader Janet Battye should withdraw her energies from handling such a baleful topic and target them instead on her national leader Nick Clegg, who is keeping a coalition in power that thinks we can cut our way out of depression. This method was tried in the 1930s and it failed.
