Incinerator issue shows flaws of old party politics
DAVE Roberts' Soapbox ("Decision-making process over recycling plant 'flawed'," November 20) defines the very problem of politics from the old parties.
He seems to suggest that, despite being a member of the majority party on the city council (Labour), that he has disquiet over the incinerator yet cannot (or will not) persuade his cabinet colleagues to abandon the project.
As I mentioned in my article previously, unlike other politicians, I changed my mind once the other side of the argument was put to me by eminent professors, who weren't there to sell anything to me or the council.
Whether Dave Roberts remembers me changing my mind is neither here nor there, as I have evidence I delivered at the time.

I do find politics is being denigrated by politicians who say one thing, prior to an election, and then do the opposite once they "get in", as has happened with the likes of Paul Bayliss (leader), Baggy Shanker (cabinet) and Robin Turner over this issue of the incinerator.
The idea of campaigning on a particular issue is that, if you attain influence or control, you will do something about it, not, as in this case, carry on regardless.
Dave Roberts also seems to justify the same stance of the Conservatives, probably because that is what his party is doing.
