POLLING day approaches and, with it, more noise from the wanabee Lib Dem politician in Chatteris.

The one, your readers will remember, who invented a whole new way of wasting local taxpayers' money by lodging bogus complaints about honest, hardworking Fenland councillors. Thousands of pounds down the drain on that one - he now talks about millions. Electors beware.

His "questions" last week demonstrate his poor understanding of council finance, and his lack of knowledge how the council operates.

The Audit Commission understands these things very well. That's its job. Its recent conclusion? "Fenland - one of the best councils in the country". I rest my case.
