Bandwagon Bob's at it again. As far as I understand it, the securing of cash for the homeless is down to the efforts and hard work of the portfolio holder Cllr Wilkinson and the council.

Bandwagon Bob likes to tell you he's the caring sharing type, like above. It's all very glossy and nice. But in reality his voting record often tells a different story. For example, he consistently voted against benefit rises in line with food prices for those in most need. He also voted for the hated Bedroom Tax. And he almost always voted for a reduction in spending on benefits. https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24784/robert_halfon/harlow/votes But I'll give him a few ideas on how to "modernise" his party, a phrase he's so fond of. I think they should immediately change their slogan to: "The Conservative Party. At Least Dick Turpin Wore A Mask."
