Taken from Liverpool Labour web site
CONFUSION AT EX LIB DEM LEADER'S CRITICISM OF CAPITAL OF CULTURE
Liverpool people have reacted with confusion as ex Lib Dem leader of the City Council, Cllr Storey, voices concerns about Capital of Culture. Whilst many agree with what he is saying - Liverpool people do not know what is going on and do not feel a part of Capital of Culture - residents are shocked that he did not voice these concerns when leader.
Cllr Storey has said. " I don't think we have thought through what our legacy will be from this [Capital of Culture]." He went on to state, "I am not sure it's by the people for the people"
The Labour Party has long been stating this calling for more openness about Capital of Culture and asking for more support to be given to projects that reflect Liverpool people and their own unique, wonderful culture.
One voter told the Liverpool Labour Party website, "Cllr Storey is a bit late to be asking these questions. Others have been questioning the process for a long while. Why didn't Cllr Storey raise these concerns when he was leader of the Council and could do a lot more about it? There's a whiff of opportunism here and you've got to ask whether he is trying to make it difficult for the new Council leader."
