A few months ago the Lib-Dems were circulating leaflets saying that the Conservatives were doing nothing with the Market Square. Now they are saying that any attempts to improve the state of it would be a waste of tax payer's money.

Are they really so shallow to think such unprincipled behaviour will not be noticed. Do they have a genuine view on anything or will they always be prepared to sacrifice their principles to suit political needs?

Perhaps they are still sore because the Conservatives rejected their pedestrianisation proposals. The difference is that the decision not to go ahead was only made after consultation with the people of Saffron Walden. The response was clear - it was not wanted. An example of democracy in action I believe.

The idea put forward by Cllr Walters is encouraging and will have a positive impact on the Market Square and the town. It is a shame that the Lib Dems have to revert to the spread of negative political propaganda in something that is so significant for this town.

I am sure the people in Saffron Walden and its environs will not be fooled quite as easily as the Lib Dems would like.
