Running with gold

MANY sleepy-eyed Weston citizens would have awoken recently to find the town street gutters running with gold, and veritably dripping from the kerbstones.

MANY sleepy-eyed Weston citizens would have awoken recently to find the town street gutters running with gold, and veritably dripping from the kerbstones.

Alas, 'twas but a few hundred litres of 'no-parking' paint, hastily slapped, hither and thither, so that Councillor Elfan Ap Rees can now freely blame our overstretched police force for Weston's parking chaos.

Unfortunately, our Highwaymen, and women, have authorised the annihilation of many valuable 'disabled' spaces. They have also inflicted total parking bans in streets where there never existed any obstructive problems, but left, tar-black and free-for-all, those thoroughfares where parking urgently needs to be rationalised.

As council employees already receive some �100,000 worth of free parking per year, while disabled drivers receive not even a fee concession, it would seem that Cllr Ap Rees will cause as much inconvenience to others as possible in order to prove a pointless point to our disadvantaged police

Luckily, any future Conservative government will comprise 'professional' politicians. By contrast, Conservative Local government councillors will, sadly, remain obstinate amateurs.

Here, Cllr Ap Rees is correct in one vital statement however; there are indeed, too many conservative councillors on North Somerset Council.
