Let’s hope our MP will be on the voters’ side
IT was interesting reading with regard to our Coventry MPs and what they were going to do for us.
I was interested in Geoffrey Robinson’s reply as to what he was going to do as he is the people’s MP for the North West of the city. There was no mention of protecting the greenbelt in your publication, it was what he wanted to do but when do we see him in Parliament?
The questions we want answering should be asked in the House. It may be fine saying what you are going to do, but it would be better to say what you have achieved.
MPs are well-paid and by that alone they should do a good job. We all know that Parliament is the best workplace you can operate in – better than most other places of work. A lot of folk now work from home and get their jobs done, so what is going wrong with working in Parliament and nothing gets done? I hope surgeries will be available for people to talk to Geoffrey. He must listen to those who voted him in and not be influenced by the council, who do not seem to agree with the people.
Coventry is looking dirty and deprived in a lot of ways. We want to become a City of Culture, what about those people sleeping in doorways? Others begging for money? Food banks? This is a disgrace in modern democratic society. Mr Robinson has his work cut out along with the two other MPs.
So we hope that he endeavours to help save the greenbelt and not push for more buildings, as look what kind of buildings we are hearing about – highrise buildings and others we do not yet know about.
So could we ask Mr Robinson to be on the voters’ side and question the council more, as it is the voters who put him in his position. Sandra Camwell Keresley
Pay the salaries for top goalscorers
GOOD to see Mark Robins bringing in new blood for the coming season, we certainly won’t be short on experience.
However, promotion will still only be a pipedream, without at least one proven goalscorer in the squad.
Thomas and McNulty may be good players at this level but the record shows they are not going to get 20+ goals in a season.
James Collins may have been a possibility but we seem to have missed out on him.
If the manager is going to bring in a dozen players as he suggests, does this mean that the owners are actually going to push the boat out in order to fund a genuine promotion push? (I guess the fans will only believe it when it happens).
But the players we need will only come to Coventry for more money, so come on CCFC, pay the salaries that are needed to attract goalscorers from higher divisions.
My preference is for Armstrong but there’s not much chance of that, so what about Richards from Northampton? Any other suggestions? I’m getting desperate. John Docherty Binley
Cash for votes in house of disrepute
DO you remember cash for questions in the house of disrepute?
Well now we have cash for votes – what is the difference? I remember a Tory MP being shown the door because of it by the electorate. Repeat of that now on the cards. William Allen Tile Hill
