Cllr. Shore is also reported to have provided the following withering critique of his leader:

"I would be interested to know how many of Reg's Lib Dem colleagues would support his views; the point of being in a party is that you share common values - they seem more divided than ever. I am pleased that the Conservative Group is united"Conservatives on West Lindsey District Council have been proactive in drawing down funding for flood defence and using the council's resources - such as the recently completed major control basin at Fiskerton, and are preparing similar schemes at Saxilby and Waddingham.
"Conservatives on West Lindsey have a record of action and are promising more, in this election, for the future: Such as the Council Tax freeze and keeping it low, the 130 jobs for young people - recognised recently in national awards.
"Reg should be clear that people really want someone who will tackle their local issues and work hard for them; not panda to the tabloids and go headline grabbing."
Conservatives set aside thousands of pounds for parish councils for flood control equipment such as aqua sacs - which Nettleham Parish Council took advantage of.
