The idea that reports of the death of Suffolk County Council’s New Strategic Direction were greatly exaggerated is gaining ground. The language has changed but services are still be moved out of the council’s direct control at a pace.
And this afternoon Mark Valladares, a leading Lib Dem blogger who live near Stowmarket, posted his view under the heading, Suffolk’s New Strategic Disguise: if at first you don’t succeed…
…you may be able to make a Conservative stop, but you can’t necessarily make them think. And the same people who either thought that the New Strategic Direction was a good thing, or were too feckless to question it, have now concluded that, for all intents and purposes, a somewhat pared back version is still fit for purpose.
So, what are they up to now?…
That is what we would like to know. NSD Mark II or the Stealth model?
Note: I read what I expected on Mark Valladares blog. His heading has been corrected above by changing “Direction” to “Disguise”.
