Recent Parish Council meeting

This week saw another full council meeting. Much of the same really but some progress was made.

Also the chairman and another cllr both resigned saying this was down to personal reasons, residents have emailed me and said that they jumped before being pushed. But what will the Parish Council do now. Will they allow a by election or will they not. One of the parish Councillor said that they do not need a by election but could have some people just co oped on. This just smacks democracy in the face. Democracy has a price!

My new leaflet is just about ready from the printers and that will be coming out in the next few days. If the Parish Council liked the last leaflet they will love this.

In this modern day and age we need open and transparent democracy so that residents throughout the area feel comfortable that they can be confident that they have a council that does not hide things and do things in the right and correct manner.

PMQ Labour score a point.

No I think it is fair to say that I am not a big Labour fan but at today PMQ's where the duty leaders where speaking the Labour MP Harriet Harman ask the Lib Dem leader that during the general election he said that it was his mission to end tuition fees and asked him how it was going? Given that the Lib Dems have now agreed to increase tuition fees this was high;y embarrassing for Nick Clegg.

What gets me is I against higher tuition fees and one answer is to get rid of the mickey mouse courses. Things like green keeping is just one example. This kind of course should be an apprentice type of job. Surely they do not need to go uni for 3 - 4 yrs to learn how to row and cut grass etc.

Once the mickey mouse course are gone then look if the budget is on track or in tuition fees need to be charged at all.

This disgusts me.

In tomorrows Daily Telegraph it is being reported the the British Government is to concede and give prisoners the vote at the next General Election. This is because of an European ruling and if the Government does not bring this in it could cost of tens of millions of pounds in compensation, they say.

The Lib dems were in favor of this a few years ago. This is complete barmy. Yet again the left wing goody goody Europeans are telling us what to do.

To make it is quite simple you go back to Europe and say we are not enforcing this ridiculous bill. If you insist we will put it to the people of the UK if they want to stay in Europe. Given that we are one of two net contributors in Europe, they need our money more than we need their laws. It really is about time what ever party is in power that they force our laws in Europe rather than being pushed around by these Europeans.
