A while ago I blogged about Chris Ridgers (Cabinet member for Economy and Regeneration) being rude, arrogant and a little out of touch.
The mischievous Cllr Ridgers has been on Twitter today, urging us not to rejoice at France's loss (presumably a bit of Tory 'yah-boo' politics following the announcement of the downgrading of the French credit rating) but to celebrate Cornwall's success instead.
Cllr Ridgers provides this link.
As you can see the link is to the eGov site and features a propaganda press release from Cornwall Council which claims that the deeper and earlier than necessary Tory ideological cuts have resulted in a triple A rating for Cornwall Council.
An AAA rating is important because "The rating means that the Council will find it easier and cheaper to raise funds from the money markets if it needs to finance big capital projects. "
My question is this:
What big capital projects are Cornwall Council planning and how will these benefit the poverty-stricken people of Pengegon?
People who are probably a bit more concerned about the impact that the Tory cuts are having on their ability to feed their children than the CV's of the Conservative cabinet members.
Lets all join Chris and celebrate the abandonment of the least well off people in the UK.
