Labour Plans

Latest Katesgrove Banner “Highgrove Street Traffic News” arrived today with details of the new one way ‘upgrade’.

Stapled to the flyer are detailed plans for the road layout changes from the RBC Department of Environment. Gareth asked for a copy two months ago and is yet to receive it. It seems to me to be evidence of a deal sorted out behind the scenes by Labour and the Council officers, otherwise, why have we not also recieved a copy.

I also find it odd that the first I hear of it as a local resident is as part of a party political leaflet and not from a council letter inviting comments.

When the Vote Comes In

RBC are planning a cross-check of the Electoral Roll with Council Tax records. It seems a great way of making sure people don’t register to vote by sending out a press release telling people that they are going to be using the register to catch them out.

Dodd-ery

Anneliese Dodds is trying that old trick of pretending that she isn't really a Labour party member by putting out a letter to residents distancing herself from her colleagues on the council after they voted for the University's conference centre at the planning committee.

Come on dear, you are either in the party and committed to replacing Trident, for tuition fees and promoting the war in Iraq or you are not.
