New year, same old scare story

H&F Tories never change. They have recycled their so-called super sewer scare story for the front pages of the first editions of the local Gazette and Chronicle newspapers in 2010.

The Tory council's opposition to Thames Water's plans to stop raw sewage being pumped into the Thames puts them in conflict with many including the Tory Mayor of London, other local authorities, the government and green campaigners.

In the coming months we will no doubt see other Tory scaremongering resurrected - watch out for Charing Cross Hospital, the district line etc etc. All to deflect attention from the fact that the Tory council has done nothing over the last four years except cut local services and open Westfield and the new library which were planned under the previous administration.

But the Tories have been silent about Boris Johnson's huge hike in fares on London's buses and tubes. There's a really scary story...
