In Reply to:  Re: BIRMINGHAM! THE NEW "LIBRARY OF BIRMINGHAM" (BY R.R.P.) posted by Richard Haut on December 17, 2002 at 10:50:55:

Quite right Richard! Here is my letter in tonight's "Evening Mail" :

"David Bell's report on local councils branded by the Audit Commission as "weak" (Mail, December 12) does not do real justice to this serious criticism of Birmingham City Council.

The Audit Commission's definition of 'weak' is: "Tend to provide low standards of service for local people and have limited ability to make them better. Their priorities are unclear and not properly tied to resources. Need to develop political and managerial ability to tackle problems."

This sounds very familiar to anyone who reads about Birmingham City Council's problems in your newspaper.

Isn't it about time the controlling Labour Group elected a new Council Leader capable of restoring Birmingham's lost greatness?

Alternatively the electorate should seriously consider voting in another political party capable of solving Birmingham's problems."

You have to stand up and be counted, otherwise they grind you down!
