Sir - I am writing to express my complete disgust at the smug and self satisfying article in the current Hertfordshire Horizons (county council magazine) by David Lloyd, executive member of resources.

His remarks regarding the schools situation in Hertfordshire, I deem insensitive and condescending to say the least, considering the damage done to numerous schools in Hertfordshire recently.

I no longer have any trust in the over-bearing and callous behaviour of so called experienced and intelligent members of the council.

Mr Lloyd will long be remembered for his blatantly ill-considered decisions. As the, until very recently, executive member for education, he is responsible for the shortage of school places in Borehamwood and Berkhamsted and was instrumental in pushing through the closure of Sunny Bank despite the misgivings of the other members of the education panel.

I await to see if he is still gloating in the coming years, when the consequences of his actions have taken hold, and there are even more school place shortages throughout our county and even more children being taught in temporary accommodation.

I also wait eagerly, to watch as he is held accountable for his blatant negligence and mismanagement of his responsibilities.
