Petitioning and pleading

THAT the Tropicana is to remain desolate is not a great surprise to the knowledgeable citizens of Weston.

THAT the Tropicana is to remain desolate is not a great surprise to the knowledgeable citizens of Weston.

What is a revelation though, is that Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, who has been in ardent condemnation of the Weston Mercury (especially when he stated that his adoption of a council employees and council tax-funded pension was 'none of its business') has now chosen to whimper an apology for his incompetence through its letters pages.

He claims that Mike Bell is calling for his head; this is an inaccuracy.

Mike Bell is, rather, a spokesman for the general opinion of the politically and future-aware people of the town - the people who, unlike Councillor Ap Rees, believe the democracy involves inclusion, not selfish exclusion, from decisions that effect their town's future.

The abject confused mess, which Weston has become, cannot be resolved by apologies.

But by direct, cost-effective action, without buck-passing; which, I believe, is exactly what Westonians have spent years petitioning and pleading for.
