A few weeks ago I reported that at a council meeting I’d proposed freezing the prices at Kirkham Baths.  This was to keep the cost low and encourage use.  Britain, and rural Fylde is no exception, is in recession.  People are struggling to make ends meet, prices are again rising and homes are being repossessed. 

I felt holding the prices to last years was a good thing, but not according to the Independent Party.  They slammed me for being ‘highly political and hypocritical’.  Well, if sticking up for Kikrham Baths again is highly political then that’s a label I’m happy to live with.  And hypocritical?  I want the baths to stay open.  Some people want the baths to close so they have an issue to fight an election with.  I think that’s hypocritical!
