In the past two-and-a-half years they have transformed education from its embarrassing state under Labour. With record exam results year-on-year we are finally catching up to the national average.

Almost half of pupils gained five or more good A*-C grades at GCSE. A fair amount of praise is also owed to staff and teachers for achieving our best results ever.

Lib Dem councillors even had the courage to stand up to their party leadership and oppose the rise in tuition fees, something Labour councillors never did, whether it was post office closures or illegal wars.

When people vote in May they should disregard national issues and consider what they want to see in Sheffield: improving schools and grades or a return to the dire state in which Labour left them?
