The deceit of the Southampton Labour Party knows no bounds. Ahead of the last council election they were peddling the message that the Council's Community Language Service was safe with them and that the Conservatives would end it. I recall one Labour Councillor, now the Communities Cabinet Member, telling a packed public meeting this in 2012. Now Labour are in power they are axing the service. When the Conservatives ran the city we protected Community Languages because we valued the work of all the dedicated volunteers and great work done by all our language schools in the city.
This new Labour betrayal is the exact same scenario as Oaklands Pool: Labour say whatever it takes to get elected and then do the exact opposite when in power. They have proved time and time again that they can't be trusted and this is just one more example.
