Feeling special

I have been the ‘lucky’ recipient of the local blue nest’s Special Residents’ Survey. In practice, it’s nothing special at all —political point scoring masquerading as a questionnaire. If the statement on the first page of this little rag is to be believed they

firmly believe in positive campaigning, which is the best way to encourage people to get involved.

Really? Lets turn to page two.

Gordon Brown is part of the past not the future.

My, what a positive statement that was! Lets move on to the survey itself, question two for example.

Following a 42% hike in Council Tax in just 3 years under a Labour Council

Nice to see them choosing such positive words as ‘hike’ to get their message across.
