Keep party politics out

THERE would appear to be an unpleasant atmosphere existing within the Seaford local council, from what we read in your paper. It just goes to show that national politics should not exist in local government.

What national or international decisions is a local council required to make or even discuss since their only activity is to decide how best to serve the local community.

However, this domination by a Conservative majority is not untypical of the existing national government whose leader is currently rearranging the electoral areas in order to sustain a permanent Conservative government.
