Local Lib Dem Councillors recently voted against proposals to build a new two form entry primary school in Kingston demonstrating that they have not learnt from their past mistakes with Kingston’s Schools.
At a meeting of the Council’s Development Control Committee, Lib Dem Councillors voted against a new school being built, with Councillor Moll actively encouraging fines to be issued if parents drop their children off by car. Despite the Lib Dem efforts to further damage our children’s education, Conservative councillors voted through the proposals as Conservative-controlled Kingston continues to tackle the shortage of school places created by the Lib Dems.
