|The Fire Authority have given the Swansea Labour leader a|
chance to do the right thing. Lets hope he takes it and re instates
the chair and the experienced fireman that he has kicked off.
The Fire Authority had its first meeting yesterday since being made chairless by Swansea Labour. First up on the agenda was to elect a new chair. The cross party committee was both embarrassed and reluctant to progress this. Instead, they took a measured approach by deferring the decision until the September meeting.
The Fire Authority is well aware of the growing unrest that has been caused by Swansea Labour leader David Phillips who threw an experienced fireman off the committee for political reasons.
Absent from this meeting was Labour Councillor Pearleen Sangha. She got into hot water by her vastly different recollection of events to others at the previous meeting.
We hope that Swansea Labour will reconsider their decision and allow the current chair and experienced fireman to continue their service without further ado.
