Another Anonymous Patron pointed to Speech to the Conservative Party Forum on Libraries, a copy of a speech given to the Conservative Party Forum on public librariesby Tim Coates.
"If the Conservative Party is to have the practical, electorally useful vision for public libraries that the people of the country are crying out for, it has to be one which will produce real improvement to a service that people can easily see is in complete disarray. That improvement has to take place within the next 4 years and it will not happen by itself or with the current regime. I am telling you how it can be done because I know how it can be achieved. I would be delighted to make it come true. It is also my ambition."
