LIB DEM VOTE COULD HAVE OVERTURNED SELSTED SOAB RESULT

Dear Ed,

Your recent article about the School Organisation Advisory Board decision to close Selsted School seems to lack one important piece of information. 

The voting figures.

In favour of closure:-  4 Con; 1 Lib Dem 

Against :-  1 Con; 2 Lab; 1 Church Rep

These figures on closer analysis reveal something surprising when put against the Peter Carroll article currently being displayed on the Lib Dem website which appears to be against KCC's closure policy re Selsted School.

So why did the only Lib Dem on this Board vote to recommend to close Selsted School contrary to their propaganda?

Something about left and right hand?

Of the others, as we know this closure has little to do with Government policy so the Labour vote is as expected, as regrettably is the majority of the Conservative vote.
