Giles McNeill, the Conservative Candidate for Nettleham Ward in the West Lindsey District Council local elections, taking place on Thursday 1st May, addressing a group of local residents and supporters saying:
"Malcolm has been on West Lindsey since May 2000 - eight years ago. Local people are rightly asking me on the doorstep what benefit has there been? There has been no major funds from the district council to pay for any projects. We pay our fair share of council taxes to the district and get so little in return.
"It is time for a fare share for the Lincoln Fringe. A fare rate of spending on villages like Nettleham and Greetwell, Grange-de-Lings and Riseholme."
Criticism has also been directed at the Liberal Democrat's lack of policies which benefit local residents. What do the Liberal Democrats actually promise to deliver if returned on May 1st? Local people can't seem to find out.
