forgotten promices

May 24th, 2010

interesting how  trustworthy the elected ones are

Several  Uni  students have contacted me because they voted Liberal  due to each Liberal pariamentary candidate ( Including  Mr Clegg)  signed  pledge and  their PROMICE  to  support students and the student loans issue

How quickly they forget- it seems that the  Promices in the Liberal manifesto  have been  scratched out  of the  Coalition  manifesto….

May 12th, 2010

I wish the new Cons/Lab pact well (for all our sakes), will be interesting to see if being a co-ilition politicians with specific party beliefs and principles – can stay at the table without selling their party soles.

we want a real MP

May 5th, 2010

It’s about time we had a ‘real’ MP, who can stand up for local people on both local and national issues. I am completely disillusioned with the major parties, as there seems to be no discernible difference between the 3.

At last!! A communication from someone other than a party hack.

It seems their ideas of campaigning is to attack the other guys, never mind the issues.

Proud but Sad

May 4th, 2010

Met 2 young gentlmen at Garforth station today.

They were waiting for a train to go and sign-up with the RAF.

 As an ex-forces person I was proud of them for their decision , but when I asked why?  One of  their reasons was that although they were both in employment, they could not see any job prospects of career development opportunities in the surrounding area.

 This is becomming a bigger issue as I go around

addressing the digital economy issues

May 3rd, 2010

Several people have contacted me about the lack of investment in the digital economy, and widespread regional high speed broadband connections.

Scarborough for example has a 200Mb access as they realise that their rural location means that their future is  highly dependant on the digital connection.

Whats your view about Elmet & Rothwell, does anybody know where this area sits with BTs intentions to  have Clouds over Cities?

Look out for Saturdays Yorkshire Evening Post

April 30th, 2010

The Saturday edition of the Yorkshire Evening  Post  within the 24/7 Weeks TV & Entertainment guide  THURSDAY has a  Reminder to Vote Independent advert 

Obviously its missed  the postal voters but there are still a large number  of voters who still go to  the local polling station, and equally some who are still undecided.

It is estimated that if all the Undecided, Floating and  switching voters all voted it would  out -weigh the main party votes
