Still vi­tal to have your say

Harefield Gazette - - 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
