So much for giving power to the people
IT IS outrageous that Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, has overturned both the local government and the Planning Inspectorate’s rejection of Khalsa School’s application.
In 2010 the same minister launched The Big Society, the aim of which was ‘the empowering of people and communities, taking power away from politicians and giving it to the people’.
No wonder the electorate is disillusioned. No wonder the Conservatives are losing supporters to UKIP.
