Lost promise

One notable manifesto promise has disappeared altogether in the process of turning Labour’s manifesto into the corporate plan. In their manifesto, under the heading Value for Money, Labour said it would:

Reduce the Council’s bloated communications budget and stop money being wasted on party political propaganda

In their first month in power the Labour cabinet attended 9 photoshoots and spent £1,700 on photographs. I think we can assume that this promise is a dead parrot. Ho hum!
