Shelve these plans.

I've just been catching up with local news after returning from Birmingham, and saw this story on the front of the Greenwich Mercury. We all had a sneaking suspicion that the 'Best Value' review was code for 'closure plans', and it seems this was correct. This is an atrociously bad idea- of all the Council services people value locally, schools, rubbish collection and libraries must top the list. Greenwich is atrocious at the first, has just messed up the second, and now looks determined to ruin the last. People value their local libraries, and the mobile library service, and moving the whole service to new centres remote from many residents is no good.
