HAS TRADITION FADED AWAY?
However, this then leads to nursing staff being taken away from caring for the patients to log registration plates for visitors whom cannot find a parking space in the correct zone and are concerned about receiving a £70 fine.
Patients/visitors need to be aware that displaying a blue badge does not constitute a release from a fine, the vehicle must be registered with Parking Eye.
Where does data protection stand in this release of information from the DVLA, (which it states is permissible only when due cause is found), and the information then held by Parking Eye? Concerned via email
WHAT IS VIEW ON TAX INACTION?
WHAT do any of the prospective parliamentary candidates for Macclesfield, including our current MP, have to say about this conundrum?
In October 2010, Christine Lagarde, then finance minister in the French government and now head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), passed a list of about 2,000 Greeks suspected of tax evasion to the then Greek government.
Five years on, none on that list have been prosecuted. That ‘Lagarde WHEN my dear grandad retired from the North Western Bus Company many years ago he was presented with a watch, a certificate and leaving party.
He was very proud of them and I am proud to have them now for our family.
I recently retired after 20 years working for a local family-run company.
The day I left no one from the family acknowledged the service I had given or even contacted me.
Fortunately my colleagues, who I see as friends, gave me gifts and a lovely signed card which I will keep for my family.
Has the old tradition been lost ?
Or was I just unlucky? Name and address supplied THE contrast between Labour and Conservative is at its clearest in their attitude to business.
Many of today’s big employers are foreignowned and much that they produce here is sold in countries all over the world.
The inability last week of Ed Balls to remember the name of even one business leader whom he claims to know revealed Labour’s unwillingness to get on with big business.
This attitude does not encourage investment.
Companies selling to the rest of the EU can easily cross the English Channel to mainland Europe, which we must stop if we are to keep jobs here.
Any UK government wanting to increase taxation to spend more on the NHS has to make business attractive to international organisations.
The Conservatives want investment from abroad and have good relations with business,which in part at least, is why so many jobs have been created by the Conservatives.
Two other differences between Conservatives and Labour are the ignoring by Labour of worries over immigration and the public’s wish to reset our relationship with the EU.
Only the Conservatives offer an in/out referendum.
The growth of support for UKIP makes clear the public’s concern on these topics (as UKIP has little to say about anything else!)
Last month Cheshire East signed off draft proposals for Alderley Park, former home to Astra Zeneca.
The council is a significant player in the conversion of this site to a bio-science hub. Now owned by Manchester Science Partnerships it is hoped its development will create up to 7,000 local jobs – it is key to the regeneration of the area; Conservative-led Cheshire East has been a major promoter of this transformation from AZ to the MSP.
If you want more jobs and a growing economy you have to vote Conservative!
