National or local politics?

The article from our MP Norman Baker (May 14), reflected the opinions of most sensible members of the public that national politics have nothing to do with the activities of local councils be they county or town.

What difference does it make to local government whatever political party council members adhere to?

Their responsibilities are to the local residents who elected them, not to their selected national party policies.
