@JohnDMerry Bit of a joke that Labour ‘fixed’ the potholes in Ellesmere Park though. It took FOUR years. I know cos I drive on those roads.
Pam don’t worry the Liberal Democrats have fixed all the ROADS in Swinton.
It’s Election time and yes i like your points over the Glossy Leaflets.
Why Don’t you do an article and ask people over their Roads.
Mr Miliband accepted that Labour faces a challenge to persuade the public that it can be trusted on the economy following the financial crisis of 2008 and the massive state deficit that followed.
The lack of controls on the Banks must lay in Labour lap,locally we have huge amounts of unsupported borrowing,loss making ice rinks,ego magazines,and huge management salaries,topped off with Labour Councillors taking Lead Member allowances,Scrutiny chairs,executive support members,outside bodies, perks,etc.How can you ever trust New Labour again?
? Well lets state the obvious giving the Doctors the purse strings on the pretense it’s handing the service to the public,in realty means the Doctors will have to bring in private companies to run the service. Pulling the wool over the sheep s eyes!!!most of the NHS will be gone before you ever figured it out. Clever buggers the Tories all with the help of there camp followers the Liberal what ever they call them selves these days.
Thanks for all the J pegs sent in but i like this one the best. Unless you have one better.
Preselection is the process by which a candidate is selected, usually by a political party, to contest an election for political office. It is also referred to as candidate selection. It is a fundamental function of political parties. In countries that adopt Westminster-style responsible government, preselection is also the first step on the path to a position in the executive.
Deselection is the opposite procedure: the political party withdraws support from one of their elected office-holders at a subsequent election. The party may then select a new replacement candidate, or it may decide (or be compelled by the electoral timetable) to forego contesting that seat (for example, the Liberal Party of Australia after Pauline Hanson was disendorsed just before the 1996 House of Representatives election. The deselected representative is usually free to still contest the election as an Independent or as a representative of another party.
Would that mean that the Barton and Irwell Riverside Councilllors lost support? Still trying to clarify the point in my mind.Perhaps they would like to comment. Seems a little strange to me when you get rid of your sitting Councillors to Fight in Swinton South and Claremont,
Sussex Police to cut hundreds of vehicles to save cash
The number of police vehicles patrolling the roads of Sussex could be reduced by more than a quarter.
Sussex Police Authority is considering reducing the size of the county’s police fleet by 27% – a reduction of 321 vehicles – in a bid to save cash.
It is hoped that by reducing the number of vehicles operated by the police over the next four years, they will save more than £2.2 million.
If the plans are approved, the force will start to cut back on vehicles from April.
The police authority’s resources scrutiny committee is due to make a decision to proceed with the fleet review at a meeting on Thursday.
The police division facing the biggest reduction in the number of vehicles it uses would be the headquarters CID, which will have 20% less vehicles at its disposal if major crimes occur.
East Sussex will see a 16% reduction in its fleet, West Downs 13%, North Downs 10% and Brighton and Hove 8%.
Is it me or does Ed Millaband look like the guy in Wallace and grommet?take a Quick look at his speech to the Fabian s not exactly in the Neil Kinnock or Smith frame,i don’t think i could be instilled to fight,bit like listening to Norman.
In a speech to the Fabian Society, Mr Miliband acknowledged that Labour had lost voters’ trust by failing to regulate banks, seeming “in thrall” to the markets and remote from ordinary people’s values.
A political furore has erupted after MPs vowed to overturn a plan by David Cameron to deny them a £1,000 pay rise.
The official body which sets MPs’ wages is next month expected to recommend their salary of £65,738 goes up by about £20 a week.
But according to reports the Prime Minister has intervened to scrap the rise to show politicians are tightening their belts like the rest of the country.No raise: David Cameron reportedly wants to show that politicians are tightening their belts like everyone else
The move provoked an angry response as backbenchers from all three main parties condemned it.
Some MPs claimed they have lost up to £20,000 with the expenses crackdown and previous pay pledges that were never fulfilled.
One Labour back bencher said: ‘This is an outrage. I am not being lectured to by a millionaire.
It’s ok for us but not for them! they all live in another bloody world.
