Election 2010

No news from the return officers for West Devon and Torridge in this election. As you all know the Conservatives are ahead but lacking the majority to form a government. The news is buzzing with talk about who the Liberal Democrats will do ‘a deal’ with.

Westden looks forward to a new government which will support and empower local third sector organisations who perform high output actions based on low input costs. Collaboration, flexibility and intelligence are the key words for us. As an apolitical organisation, Westden is happy with almost any of the parties to be in charge, whether with majority or in a consensus, balanced parliament. However, Westden is looking for a future of local community resilience and warmth. A government that supports us in a future like that will be truly appreciated.
