“It always seems impossible until it is done”

Judith Nathanail writes: The title is a quote from – be inspired – Nelson Mandela. But the context is Bramcote and Stapleford.

I have been putting various information on a GIS for the area I live in. In light of tomorrow’s elections, I thought it would be useful for people to see Green belt changes and proposed development on a map. Note that the removal of Field Farm from the Green belt resulted in a less defensible Green belt boundary. This happened when the Council was controlled by the Liberal Democrats/Labour.

The Conservatives, who promised to protect our Green belt, have only made it worse – voting to remove two more chunks of land in our area (and more elsewhere), thus further fragmenting the remaining Green belt.

Multiple policies from the past have led us to this point – the question is, who will YOU vote for tomorrow? As my name might suggest, I will be voting for a candidate Independent of the political parties who will fight for our local area.

  1. Councillor Richard MacRae says:

    Thank you for posting this article. It shows that the recent newsletter the Lib Dims put out was wrong. Unfortunately they never withdrew the newsletter and posted out the correct information or apologised for telling lies about Field Farm which they voted to allow to be built on in the first place.

    I, too, in this local election, will be voting for an independent candidate, Paul Nathanail, who is standing on a platform of principle, that it is WRONG to give public property, our property, our land, to a private company, whatever the reason.
    The Tories have no moral compass, no grounding in honesty, and see no problem with giving away what is not theirs to give. They see it as a reallocation of resources. They say one thing to get elected, and then proceed to do whatever suits them. It fits their mould as the inverted Robin Hoods, taking from the poor and giving to the rich.
    Only PAUL NATHANAIL can stand untainted by party dogma and represent Bramcote with integrity.

    Richard has a proven track record of working hard for his community. He also encourages folk to put away their tribal politics, for the common good. Broxtowe residents have a champion in Richard Mac Rae,.

  4. Grenville
    I agree.
    Richard is standing in stapleford & broxtowe central
    Paul Nathanail (that’s me) in Bramcote and Beeston North. The playing fields are in this divison.
    Who knows, Bramcote could have TWO independent councillors!
