Does the TCC think all rate payers are stupid and cant see thru their blind obsession with a Museum it would pay them to listen to the people for once and do what they want not told what they are going to get.No Museum thanks.

I have just received and read the documentation accompanying the by election/museum referendum. Talk about propaganda - There is no doubt that the museum blurb has been contrived to attempt to sway the population into a ’yes’ vote, all the statements being positive - very little if any comments published are showing the negative sides of such a museum - The protagonists would claim that there are no negative aspects but those who pay the rates may certainly have other views. - Hardly balanced!
