Elected to a seat or sit­ting on the fence

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - DAVE ROBINS Wim­pole Road West Dray­ton

AT least Do­minic Gil­ham is firmly op­posed to the third run­way which is more than can be said for our GLA rep­re­sen­ta­tive Dr Onkar Sa­hota who is pub­licly neu­tral over the is­sue.

This de­spite the fact that thou­sands of his con­stituents in the Heathrow Vil­lages would have their homes de­stroyed by ex­pan­sion at the air­port and tens of thou­sands of peo­ple in Eal­ing would be un­der the flight­path.

De­spite all this Dr Sa­hota feels un­able to come out in clear op­po­si­tion to a third run­way un­like his Labour col­leagues John McDon­nell, Ruth Cad­bury and An­drew Slaugh­ter.

The first re­quire­ment of an elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive is that s/he will stand up for their con­stituents.

Does Dr Sa­hota do this I won­der?
