Tonight, the taxpayers of Wirral can congratulate themselves on having more sense than Wirral’s Cabinet, as this evening the leader of this Labour-led Council has performed a U-turn and will review the council’s policy on street lighting.
Some lighting will be returned to the North Wallasey Approach Road with other routes also being reviewed.
This is good news and I welcome his U-turn but would question why it has taken so long. What was the council thinking of plunging us into darkness on some of the most crash prone roads on Wirral?
When I suggested this policy was, well, out of the Dark Ages, their Cabinet Member Adrian Jones asked what planet I was on. It seems a week really is a long time in politics. Welcome to Planet Earth, Cllr Jones!
The taxpayers of Wirral can congratulate themselves on having more sense than the Cabinet. I am, however, worried as to how they made that decision in the first place – this needs to be reviewed as well. I have emailed the Chief Executive and asked for this detailed information.
Thank you to all those members of the public who insisted on being heard, they can congratulate themselves on persuading the so called ‘political elite’ at the council into thinking again and reversing this decision.
