Why didn’t Tories make the savings?

Hope Street

Hebden Bridge

Councillor Richard Marshall writes (Your say, May 16) “if the Conservatives had been in control, savings would have been achieved by more efficient management of the Councils finances”, that’s a bit rum to say the least!

Given that they were in charge for a decade, the question is why didn’t they make those savings when they ran the council?

Either they were incompetent guardians of the public purse, or they’re hypocritically whistling Dixie from the sidelines.
