It's great to see so many Labour achievements from our time in power coming to fruition.
The opening of the new Plymouth Coach Station is a huge achievement for Labour and a massive boost for the city. It creates the opportunity to regenerate the old and tired Bretonside Bus Station into a truly incredible entertainment quarter as well as providing a first-class welcome to Plymouth for coach travellers.
The new coach station comes only a few days after the History Centre project officially began to renew and expand the city's museum and a few months after the new city centre Library opened. All of these happened because of Plymouth's Labour Councillors working with communities to renew our city's infrastructure.
The Tories and UKIP may be in charge but the schemes they are so enthusiastically opening were conceived by a Labour Council, funded by a Labour Council and are happening because of a Labour Council.
I would hope that the Tory councillors who seem so happy to take credit for these openings would afford due credit to their predecessors who did all the heavy lifting. But this is politics, so I guess not. On the upside, our city is finally getting the attention and the investment we deserve.
