I THINK we all know Bob Blizzard as an effective Parliamentary representative of Waveney and that he keeps a close eye on local matters and is quick to speak out on our behalf.

This helps keep the local council on its toes whilst they, in turn, occasionally come back at Mr Blizzard if they find him out of line - what a great combination for us rather than all that friendly back-slapping if they are both on the same side.

Certainly the local Labour group are shooting themselves in the foot if they hark back to 2003 when Labour was last in control - what a terrible year and how we had to pay for it with a 15pc+ local rate rise.
