As a parent of a child at Coombe Road Primary School, I am disappointed at the outcome of the schools admissions review (SAR) vote on February 2 (The Argus, February 3).

What I was most disappointed about was the fact the democratic process seemed to be totally ignored.

It seems to me that when the chair of the children, families and schools committee realised the proposal would be defeated, they decided to sack a councillor who was against some or all of the SAR proposals and replaced her with a person who would do what the other Labour councillors wanted.

This is unfair and undemocratic.

When a vote is so cynically tampered with, it makes me wonder who the councillors are serving.
