16/9/2006 – Liberal Councillor Calls Swindon, “Den of Thieves”
A Liberal Councillor from Calne has had the cheek of writing in an article for a motoring magazine and makes reference to Swindon as a “den of thieves”. This is based on the fact his car was stolen in Swindon 30 years ago!
I find it disgraceful that Cllr Colin Viner, the current Mayor in Calne, a Liberal Democrat, has tarnished Swindon reputation in a national motoring magazine based on something that happened 30 years ago.
The fact that a Councillor from another local Council should put another local council down and then for something that happened 30 years ago it completely out of order.
Although I am not Swindonian by birth I am very protective of Swindon and very proud of living here and bringing up my family here.
