IN HER lengthy letter to the January 4 Stroud News & Journal, Stroud District Councillor Skeena Rathor tells us that the Conservative agenda is to take from those who have the least.

And yet, from the newspaper’s huge headline proclaiming “Council mistake leaves families with no money”, it becomes clear from what people affected told them, it is those on lower incomes that bore the brunt.

Knowing that the responsibility must lie with the Labour, Green and Liberal councillor coalition in charge, was it not they who trod on the poorer?
