This article from the Stockport Express has council bosses claiming that staff at the superb Edgeley Playscheme are "delighted" by plans to have them outsourced/privatised/shut down. I very much doubt it. Is this further evidence of LibDem lies and failure to understand what is good about our Borough and what is important to local people? I couldn't possibly comment.
