Save Lincolnshire Libraries leaving High Court after day 2

A series of tweets to illustrate day 2 of Simon Draper v Lincolnshire County Council, a very important test case, the outcome of which could have major implications for the future of public libraries across the country.

Philistines at Lincolnshire County Council are attempting mass closure of libraries in the county, reduced service for those that remain. Local communities are challenging this through a Judicial Review in the High Court. It would not normally be possible to tweet from Court. The Judge granted permission.

What day 1 and day 2 in the High Court has shown, is that when decisions taken by arrogant councillors and their officials are subject to proper scrutiny, they are found wanting.
