Labour and Consistency
Labour have frequently critisised the Lib Dems for being inconsistent. For example they criticise us for the fact that the Edinburgh Lib Dems have not implemented a congestion charge.
Our response is that it is "horses for courses" and what is appropriate locally should apply.
Now Labour are delivering leaflets in Birmingham criticising the administration for introducing a congestion charge. Firstly the administration does not actually have a policy of introducing a congestion charge. Furthermore, however, Labour can either claim that consistency should apply in which case they should be consistent.
Alternatively they should allow local discretion and not criticise the Lib Dems for using local discrretion.
The same Labour leaflet criticises the extension of the Metro system. This is a policy supported by Labour.
