Further to our earlier story Worcester Conservatives have just issued a statement, declaring that they will not support Worcester twinning with Gaza:
“Conservatives will not vote to twin with Gaza City
Labour Councillor Alan Amos proposed a motion "That the City of Worcester twin with Gaza City" at a meeting of the City Council. Conservatives amended the motion to refer the debate to the Twinning Association – the correct body to consider such matters.
The Conservative Group will vote against any proposals from the Twinning Association to twin with Gaza City should such a plan be put forward by them.
Conservatives want to concentrate the Council’s efforts on delivering the best possible services to the people of Worcester, unlike the Labour Party who want to distract the public from the real issues facing Worcester under this Labour Government’s disastrous economic policies.”
