Ian Tyler writes: Well, we’re in a maelstrom of various political options.
Whilst I’m a Lib-Dem ,I’m first and foremost someone in our community who wishes to find a voice that reflects those things that we value .
What is it that we value?
Our family first, hopefully our respect for those less fortunate , whatever their circumstances.
Political parties look for the convenient platitudes that they hope will take the pressure off the issue of the day.
Be sure of what you really believe, don’t be convenient – express your opinion.
Now the “bitter end”, an old naval expression for the point where the anchor was free and ready to stow.
We have , in Broxtowe, a ruling administration that has uniquivically indicated it’s wish to destroy our voice, has raided the reserves built up by it’s predecessors, totally failed to acknowledge the dedication of its officers, and used them as an excuse for their own incompetence.
Now the Tory Nottinghamshire County Council seeks to cement it’s self seeking hold on power by abolishing the irritating Borough Councils who interfere with their “we know better than you plebs”
There are alternatives .
The best, in my opinion, would be to abolish the NCC, have fewer ,amalgamated BC’s , and let localism really have a voice.
