Justin Tomlinson MP says act NOW on libraries

With thanks for permission to reproduce his reply here,  in response to the press release of Dan Javis MP,  Justin Tomlinson MP writes,

“Sigh…

What a load of marketing guff, stating the blindingly obvious – well except (as expected) no mention of whether they would provide any additional funding or reference to the swathes of libraries decimated during the Socialist Utopian Government years / Socialist ruled Councils.  (I’m not saying any Party is perfect on libraries, but I wouldn’t have put my name to this 2nd hand car-sales brochure if it was in dashing blue either!)

The world of libraries is changing / evolving – come up with concrete suggestions (hey maybe funding?) not flannel.  Could of, should of, would of, dear me…

To those actually doing the graft on the coal-face, more power to you.

Me, I’d have a library Tsar with a commercial background (Tim Coates etc!), focus on numbers and customer experience.  Share this best practice, rejoice in being the thriving hub of communities – this would make local Government appreciate (and pay for) the services we want.

Be spikey, float radical ideas, hey even get it wrong – but get it done.

Cheers, Justin

Justin Tomlinson
North Swindon Conservative MP”
