Must be a better way to advertise our displeasure
I THANK Councillor Paul Bayliss for his explanation of why our Labour Council is continuing with its campaign against Government funding – or should I say the lack of it – "£3,800 money well spent in plea for fair funds deal" (January 29).
Suffice to say the Derby Telegraph had already informed us the other parties had opted out.
Even though I agree with the council and its opposition to the amount the Government is allocating, I still maintain this form of advertising with posters and banners paid for with rates money will not do anything to help the Government change its mind and give us a fair deal.
This form of advertising locally with the rates money and giving the Labour council's view makes for a form of electioneering by appearing to wind up the local electorate.

I offer an alternative method. If this money and this form of advertising is to be used why not hire a large van, place poster adverts on all sides send it to London and drive it round Westminster for a few days. Meantime, Derby City Council could inform national newspapers and the media of their intent. It may even reach the TV screens and be seen by millions.
The cost would be about the same – it's just a thought. Or would this be seen by the rest of Britain as another form of electioneering?
