BIG PIC­TURE

obliged to ac­cept.

The cost, £550 per week but a min­i­mum charge of two weeks, £1,100.

I was lo­cated in a room on the sec­ond floor and the care home was not equipped to meet my sim­ple needs.

We hope the beds to be pur­chased by the coun­cil are checked to in­deed en­sure QCC stan­dards and cer­tainly equal to those pro­vided by Hollins View.

Yes we do care about safe bricks and mor­tar for the ben­e­fit of those that need care, be­cause we do care about peo­ple.

This is why we are call­ing for spe­cific an­swers to ques­tions con­tained in my let­ter to the editor, Mac­cles­field Ex­press July 8th.

With bless­ings to all. Jack Spencer El­der Mac­cles­field and Bolling­ton United Re­formed Church The Church at Park Green AS we in the Labour Party lick our wounds and re­flect on the choice of a new leader here in Cheshire East we man­aged to suc­cess­fully se­cure 16 Labour coun­cil­lors with nine of them women – re­flect­ing at last the gen­der bal­ance of the na­tion in our lo­cal pol­i­tics.

Cheshire East be­came a UKIP free zone and Mac­cles­field now has no Lib­eral Democrats un­less of course you count the ones that are now Con­ser­va­tive coun­cil­lors. Isn’t democ­racy bril­liant?

It will be a busy few years as we at­tempt to keep the lo­cal Con­ser­va­tives from al­low­ing the de­struc­tion of our green land.

We have also got to en­sure that the new Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil takes the lead on the re­gen­er­a­tion of the town cen­tre and not al­low a small, vo­cal, un­elected group run roughshod over public opin­ion.

Our coun­cil­lors will con­tinue to cam­paign to pro­tect care ser­vices in Mac­cles­field even af­ter post elec­tion clo­sures to care fa­cil­i­ties have al­ready been an­nounced.

Na­tion­ally, Labour has to op­pose the rein­tro­duc­tion of fox hunt­ing and op­pose the abo­li­tion of the Hu­man Rights Act.

But the great­est bat­tle will be sav­ing our coun­try from the anti-Euro­peans who seek to de­stroy the eco­nomic and so­cial gains that EU mem­ber­ship af­fords us.

Cameron knows this, busi­ness knows it and so do the news­pa­per barons.

I welcome a ref­er­en­dum that will fi­nally put to bed the great Con­ser­va­tive myth of their euro scep­ti­cism.
