Only 'fine' words

WE GOT some fine words from Labour councillors but not a lot else.
I guess they haven’t taken a strong stance against the bedroom tax because the Labour leadership at Westminster has made it clear that they will not scrap it if they win the next UK General Election.
Plaid’s motion was an opportunity for every councillor in Caerphilly to come together to oppose this tax in the strongest and most wide-ranging way possible.
But Labour watered things down and that is very disappointing.
This was an opportunity for Labour to stand up for the most vulnerable in society – and they’ve failed the test.
