It has reached us that seem members of the bigger political parties seem to have had some worries over our partners in the Peterborough City Council's Independent Forum Group forming their own political party. The Liberal Party Members in the group have no issues with the concept. This leaves us wondering why outsiders are so concerned . They have declared their reasons and these seem pretty straightforward to us. They continue to remain independent of the larger parties in their political activities. The Local Government Association has an independent group which is open to all councillors not in the main stream parties this includes the Liberal Party and we have no qualms about declaring ourselves independent of other political parties . We will continue to work with other groups if we feel it best serves the City and our area and does not compromise our own heartfelt instincts. We might not always be spot on but we care.
One thing we won't do is make firm promises and then wilfully act in direct contrast to those pledges,.
