NOT ONE SINGLE AINSDALE TORY COUNCILLOR BOTHERED TO SHOW UP IN SUPPORT
Ainsdale Conservative apathy reached new heights of incredulity during thesuccessful fight to keep Brookdale (Woodvale’s dementia facility) open.
Politicians from both Labour and Liberal Democratic camps arrived to show strong support for the campaign. The fight back was initiated by locals/families who were profoundly concerned for the continuation of the centre, following despicable Sefton Council threats of closure.
However, Ainsdale Ward’s councillors, Terry Jones and Ted Hartill never came anywhere near the campaign or the facility. They showed NO interest!
A local Brookdale campaigner stated.
“We have had really good support during this hard battle from Labour and the Libdem people. They have been visiting the place regularly and seeing what they can do to help, yet Conservative councillors, Terry Jones and Ted Hartill,have been totally invisible and never came anywhere near the fight. It has been stated that they are, ‘Dementia – unfriendly’ and in this instance this is a true fact. In the end we won the fight so these two Tories were not even needed, but it would have been nice to know they actually had some compassion for the families suffering under the axe of closure. They let us all down badly.”
Some politicians appear to care about their community, whilst others do not! Woodvale, in Ainsdale Southport, remains as one characteristic example of this fact!
