‘Proper dialogue instead of monthly council meetings’
YOU would think the House of Lords would have been bursting at the seams the other day when the discussion was all about affordable houses.
But sadly not, as was visible. Was there a dozen lords and ladies present? Just about. Wonder why?
Could it be the fact that our capital is a true example of what’s wrong with this country at present and lords and baronets were too embarrassed to attend this sitting and having witnessed the Russian’s ploy some 30-odd years ago when the seed of greed was firmly sown to which the fruits have made this capital city one of the most expensive places to live in the world.
God help ‘em I say and there’s another well known saying – “the Lord looks after them that look after themselves”.
I think this saying is quoted at every Waterhouses Parish Council meeting so as Lord Witty said in his forthright and interesting speech a new system is urgently needed to address this 100-year-old problem.
You know readers it started with the formation of that useless parish council system that meets every month to send love letters to their cronies at Stafford.
I would say alongside of Lord Witty, scrap this out-moded system and have proper dialogue with local people with the local vicar as chairman and his church warden and parishioners as proper representatives.
Job done, with the blessing of Lord Witty of course. Frank Bradbury Calton & Leek
