What is the purpose of a District Council, or any Council for that matter? There are services that the Council are legally required to provide and there are other services that are optional and I think that it may be expedient to step back a little and consider exactly what outcomes our Residents truly want and whether we can find the means to deliver them. Historically Councils were first formed and permitted to raise taxes to achieve two aims: Provide homes and improve the welfare of the poor. Resolve drainage problems which was the blight of the nation’s health especially in Towns and villages.

What this coalition has undertaken since the General Election can be summed up in one phrase - a rescue mission. Just eight months ago, we were on a similar track to Ireland, Greece and southern Europe. Having maxed-out one credit card, Labour's big plan for the economy was to take out another one, putting the economy at risk and leaving our children to pay off the debt. The country was in the danger zone - but the difficult decisions we are taking are now pulling us out of that danger zone.

Of course, it hasn't always been plain sailing. We don't agree on everything. We never said we would. And the political risks are greater when you are in a coalition. But the rewards for our country of having a strong and stable Government - two parties working together in the national interest - are infinitely greater too.
