Disaster after disaster has occurred

IT IS about time that the residents of Weston and surrounding areas got rid of the pocket bulging councillors of the Conservative party.

Disaster after disaster has occurred in the short time I have live here (3.5 years).

Building the so-called carrot, The Tropicana and now possibly pensioners' bus passes are in danger of being taken away.

The final two points are the ones I feel are major let downs.

The Tropicana I understand has been empty for many years, all we need is a covered pool which can also be used, for example, as an ice rink, a ballroom and perhaps a music venue.

The Tory councillors have lined their pockets over the time with allowances and have now got egg on their faces.

I spoke to one councillor recently who agreed with me that either a small increase in the community charge or a donation of even a couple of pounds per person would cover the cost of this venture.Imagine the benefits we would gain in a short time.

I am retired and like many other pensioners have worked all their lives to obtain a good pension and still pay income tax on our pensions.

To take away the bus pass would be a sacrilege. In London pensioners have access to rail travel (approximately 15 miles either side), the underground and help towards the tickets on the river buses.

Please reconsider these points or take a long walk at the next election. It is about time that everyone who feels the same way should stand together, I would hate to imagine what will happen next.
