I'm not resigning, says council boss

AFTER weeks of heavy criticism Copeland Council’s leader is defiant.
Have your say
I do feel a very small bit of sympathy for Ms Woodburn as she is taking all the flak for the shambles. However, whatever happened to Councillors Knowles and Giel who were directors of the rugby club and were leading lights in driving the stadium forward mainly for the benefit of their club? Where is Paul Walker the main driver of the World Cup bid for Copeland? He was the one that was saying the World Cup would see bed and breakfast establishments filled during the cup period when I think most knowledegable rugby fans know that isn't going to happen with the teams allocated to west Cumbria. Where is the expensively paid consultant who should have known the problems of getting access through charity land long before plans got this far? I suppose as overseer of all of this then Ms Woodburn is culpable but lets hear from the others who seem to have sneaked away in to some dark corners.
Karl Connor was sacked by this woman for speaking his mind about the current state of the project.... Looks like he was right all along, I think he needs some sort of apology by the Copland Labour party that he stood for and only had there best intrests at heart
This confirms the typical arrogance often shown by our council leader & her cronies. When will they realise that their constant failure to deliver democratically determined policy is what is starting to agitate the electorate of the borough. Its always about their personal views, not the views of the electorate. Mind you, they prove time after time that they cant deliver their own limited vision so what chance would they have of delivering a democratically derived vision for our neglected, mismanaged borough? Why cant she and her close knit failures do the right thing an disappear quitely?
