As a former Tory voter of many years, I was aware that Cotswold District Council needed a change of leadership and subsequently voted Lib Dem on the 2nd May.

However as soon as they gain control, I read that their first action is to award themselves a pay rise!

I have been trying to persuade my husband to vote Lib Dem but the man is not for turning!

He warned me that the Lib Dems would just put up taxes with no improvement in services and remains a staunch Tory voter.

Please Cllr Harris prove him wrong!!!
