Warrington TUSC councillor slams 'undemocratic' Labour administration

The Labour administration at Warrington Council has tried to stifle democratic debate. I was stopped from speaking and laughed at during a recent full council meeting. Democracy seems to be a 'dirty word' with them.

Two of the councillors actually lied in the chamber at the same time as voting through an increase in the councillors' budget allowance. This from the Labour group, I was disgusted!

The people of Warrington need to know that the current leadership are a bunch of 'undemocratic thugs' and deserve a leadership accountable to and prepared to fight for the interests of working class people.
