Liberal Democrat libraries

A press release arrives from what me must learn to call Great George Street telling me that last year Conservative and Labour councils closed more than 40 libraries. But for the second year in a row, no Liberal Democrat-controlled council in England and Wales closed any library.

Better than that, Liberal Democrat-controlled Cardiff is opening five new libraries and Portsmouth and Bristol are opening new ones too.

It's nice to know you are in the right party. And that even in times of austerity, well-run local authorities can make a big difference.
