Nick Palmer – The General Election

Nick Palmer writes: I’ve been asked by Labour whether I’d like to be considered as our candidate for Broxtowe. I need to decide by this weekend, so I thought I’d consult you. 10% of the homes in Broxtowe get my emails, so it’s a good sample.

As most of you know, I was Broxtowe’s MP from 1997 to 2010, when Anna Soubry won by a tiny majority. We had a consistently better result for Labour than nationally – in 1992 and 2010, the national result was very similar, but in Broxtowe the Conservatives won by 16% in 1992 and just 0.7% in 2010. In 2015, I stood again, and this time the Tory majority was bigger: Continue reading

Reminder: Community Exhibition Consultation Tomorrow on New School and Residential Development on Coventry Lane Playing Fields

This consultation will be held on: Wednesday 19th April 2017 from 3pm – 7pm at Bramcote College, Moor Lane, Bramcote, Nottingham NG9 3GA

The issues involved are extremely important for the community. Make sure you go along and comment on the proposals.

Before you go, read this  Freedom of Information Request which is a trail of emails largely between Cornerstone ( White Hills Park Federation’s facilitating consultants) and the County Council about the lands leased by White Hills Park Federation and the residual Bramcote Moor reserve. You will find it all very illuminating and fully in support of what Paul Nathanail has been saying on his blog.

General Election Must Not Distract From Local Issues

Paul Nathanail writes: The news of a snap general election must not be allowed to distract us from the key decisions Notts County Council will be making in coming months. Specifically the intention to gift large swathes of publically owned land to an independent but small, and potentially ripe for takeover, multi academy trust must be challenged.

Bramcote and Beeston North faces the prospect of losing its green belt and seeing control of local school infrastructure pass out of public control and into the hands of directors of a trust which is struggling to meet its financial obligations.

There will be time enough to campaign for the Broxtowe seat in westminster after the county elections and before 8 June.

So on 4 May Bramcote and Beeston North should ensure it has a voice in County Hall to speak up for keeping public lands in public hands.

Candidate for Bramcote and Beeston North in the Nottinghamshire County Council elections.

Please consider voting for PAUL NATHANAIL on 4 May 2017 to help retain land and school buildings in public ownership.

Disillusioned!

Pat Ratcliffe writes: Please correct me if I’m factually wrong, but did a LABOUR council, yes, a LABOUR council, recently vote for more fracking in Nottinghamshire?

And has a LABOUR council, the self same LABOUR council collaborated with Tories and Lib Dems to give away £20 million plus of public assets to a privately owned school?

You’d expect the party of private enterprise, and the party that sits on the fence to do this, but the LABOUR party!

Two key questions for you, Ellie Winfield. Please answer.

Pat Ratcliffe, Bramcote.
