The Bickerstaffe Record

Bickerstaffe Thoughts, Cotterill on the Council, The world beyond West Lancashire

Blackpool, Burnley, and Bickerstaffe too?

02.02.11 | Comment?

Only yesterday I posted a press release I’d done, challenging the Tories in West Lancashire to get down to London and lobby Eric Pickles for extra cash, just as the Tory leader in Blackpool is doing on February 8th. 

We’ll see what effect that challenge has.  In the meantime, though, here’s news from Burnley that it might well be worth it.

Burnley got one of the worst settlements from the Tory government, but has apparently negotiated another £1.74 million from government for the coming year.

So will the West Lancs Tories try and do the same?

If they do, they’ll have my backing. 

If they don’t, they should hang their heads in shame at their cowardice.

ps. Only put Bickerstaffe as the headline for alliteration purposes.  I mean the whole of West Lancahshire, including Banks, Burscough and the bits bordering Billinge and Bispham.  And other letters too.
