Still vital to have your say
THE Mayor sits in his counting house counting out his money……
Oh dear, there isn’t enough. Let me see, there are 32 London Boroughs and I have lots of police stations.
Ah, I have a cunning plan – I will sell one that is worth a lot of money and then I shall be able to pay my policemen. Yes – I have found the very one – Uxbridge!
It sounds like a nursery rhyme. My apologies for the frivolity, but unfortunately it is true and there is still time for you – Gazette readers – to do something about it.
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) began a Consultation on policing in London earlier this year. Unfortunately, their Presentation didn’t reach Hillingdon until September 13 and we were given ridiculously short notice to reply to it by October 6.
It is still important that local residents send individual letters to MOPAC. It is a very important way in which the Mayor can be made aware of the strength of local opinion. Paul Johnson Chairman, North Uxbridge Residents Association
