Loosing the buses still rankles.
Not simply because it now costs £12 return trip by taxi into Kirkby, but because I do not feel that our Parish Councillors have pulled their weight.
They put out a survey. I have asked a number of times for the results, but the only response I have had is that they were sent to Peter Williamson (our rep on the City Council). I have no problem with that but surely our PC made sure that they had a record!
The last time we had a survey in the Village was regarding the application for a Wind Farm. The PC reported the results at their meeting on the 05 May 2015, as follows:
157 sheets delivered
99 returned to date, representing 200 parishioners
In favour of the windfarm – 25
Against the windfarm – 170
No firm opinion – 5
My question is – Why did the PC not discuss the results of the bus survey in the same way. It was infinitely more important and of greater impact on those they are supposed to represent.
There has not been a contested election in the village since my wife and I arrived in 2001. As the Germans say “alles ist nicht gut” or, the French put it more proverbially “cette pisse pierre sent”
Gutten nacht, et bien dormir.
