Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviews - James Owen Mur­dishaw

I NOTED in last week’s Weekly News that you once again poke fun at the Con­ser­va­tive Party – ‘For­mer MP never vis­ited us’.

Your ar­ti­cle ‘New dawn for the New Town’ – I have no idea where you are talk­ing about.

All I know is the NHS is look­ing at Run­corn hav­ing 800 units con­structed or con­verted into healthy (don’t for­get the in­cin­er­a­tor and the planned in­cin­er­a­tor) homes for healthy peo­ple. A bit short of the 24,000 units al­ready in the town, over half built be­fore the New Town and now in need of rad­i­cal re­think­ing as to how they will fit into a greener, health­ier, en­ergy sav­ing world.

Miss­ing the point of the hu­man poul­try farms be­ing pro­duced by con­vert­ing old of­fices around the shop­ping city.

Sad about his­tory but this town could have had a bridge in place pos­si­bly with free travel for all if Derek Twigg, when trans­port min­is­ter in 2005, had picked up the chal­lenge.

In­stead we had to wait for Phil Ham­mond to sign the ap­proval doc­u­ment.

The Weaver Vale con­stituency af­ter the bound­ary changes will lose, thank­fully Hal­ton Lea, and pick up some sen­si­ble vot­ers from the old Ed­dis­bury seat.

Your neg­a­tive ar­ti­cles can only turn the 12,000 vot­ers that didn’t vote Labour in Run­corn Weaver Vale, show their dis­dain for your pa­per and ● those who voted Labour only read the Weekly News in the li­brary.

Where are the ar­ti­cles on the At­lantic Gate­way, which from what I can pick up is rid­ing through Hal­ton with­out stop­ping, and with no Hal­ton rep­re­sen­ta­tion on board this project, run­ning the full length of the Manch­ester Ship canal? With a NEW bridge for War­ring­ton.
