Harborough Tories: The writing is on the wall

Trenchant stuff from the Harborough Mail:

Under pressure Harborough District Council is facing flak on three different fronts as public anger with the authority grows.

The level of dissatisfaction with the council hit a new low this week as placard-waving protesters announced they will take to the streets of the town centre this Saturday to campaign against the council's recent unpopular decision to close public toilets at the Market Hall.

It comes on the back of another deepening row this week as councillors on both sides of the political spectrum took umbrage at the way its chief executive Sue Smith announced possible spending cuts for the 2011/12 budget.

And apparently the paper has more developments in the Focsa saga too.

Harborough District Council, I need hardly add, is currently run by the Conservatives.
