Gosh, how ludicrous! But wait gentle reader, what are the facts?
- Businesses in the town pay for the electricity to power the lights, which will be officially switched on at a ceremony on November 23.
The lights first blinked into life on Monday and were on again last night as proud town council representatives toured the display.
I wondered why they weren't having a go at the looney lefties on the council for wasting tax payer's money. No mention at all. Here's why:
- Local government elections took place on 3rd May 2007 in Leighton Buzzard and Linslade. The constitution of the Town Council is now Conservative 16, Liberal Democrat 5. No Labour candidates were elected.
- Following the District Council Election on Thursday 3 May 2007, the constitution of the District Council is now Conservative 34, Liberal Democrat 12 and Labour 4.
