Cllr Gottlieb is wrong to blame all the ills of the council on the council’s senior management team.The people that authorised the Station Approach Planning Brief and the Highcliffe Consultation – and who agreed to continuing the Station Approach development despite three out of five architects dropping out – and who are also legally accountable for most decisions of the council – are the Council’s Leader and Cabinet. Â And for all of the last 5 years – and for all the decisions Cllr Gottlieb mentions – the Council Leader and Cabinet have been Conservative.While opposition Liberal Democrat and Labour councillors – and, on occasion, even some Conservative Councillors – have been able to put up proposals for reform and arguments against the proposals put forward by the Conservative administration – and have done so in all the cases he mentions, in almost all cases the Conservative Cabinet have ignored them or the Conservative majority have voted them down.If Councillor Gottlieb wants to know what it will take to change the council and change the priorities of council officers, the answer is simple.Â The Conservatives need to be voted out.

Just debriefed with the local Lib Dem team for St Barnabas ward after today's councillor surgery. Obviously David Amess and those close to him were in our thoughts. Colleagues greatly appreciated the support and concern from residents after the horrifying events of yesterday.

Reset our expectations of what was possible in so many ways. I had a Sinclair calculator - and, at home, we shared a ZX81, and then a Spectrum. The only person I ever saw drive a C5 though was @aroberts_andrew! pic.twitter.com/j7Ax7u6kPH
