Simon was the leader of an unpopular Labour led council that rode arrogantly over committees if Labour councillors dared to listen to their electors rather than the leadership, that offered pathetic loyalty cards instead of policies that would win it support, embarked on a parking zone merger that will cost money AND increase congestion, spent £3m a year on advisors that talk about doing stuff rather than actually doing it. All this money could have provided free bus travel for under 16s (it is equivalent to one hundred 30k salaries).
On the housing transfer issue that was such a disaster - Simon says 'the Labour government and the tenants were pulling in different directions'. Yeah but you still thought trying to bribe and threaten tenants into the transfer was an ok thing to do. It was you who made that decision - don't try to delegate responsibility for it.
This Burgess whinge in the Argus is just a self-interested attempt to salvage his run for the Kemptown nomination. Do we really need a candidate like this?
