Spending millions of our pounds

CLLR AP Rees, the Tory councillor and deputy leader of the council, is now trying to pull on the heart-strings of your readership by declaring that the proposed move of 700 people from Weston to Clevedon, which will cost the council taxpayer over �16m, is being done to provide council staff with better working conditions which they so deserve.

Surely it would be cheaper to upgrade their existing offices to fulfil his aims as a 'Caring Conservative' rather than spending millions of our pounds on a project that is being condemned by all sections of the community.

He goes on to say that he and other Tory councillors have not received any objections to the plans which is hard to believe judging by the amount of letters being published on a weekly basis in your newspaper which are against his policies.

Apparently a petition has been set up on the No10 website to register objections to this waste of our money.

Your front page this week headlines the proposed closure of the Weston Museum and also reports on other schemes to remove the Playhouse and Winter Gardens from the people of Weston and put them in the hands of the private sector whose sole aim will be to make as much profit as possible and which will have a direct impact on the pockets and purses of the regular users of these facilities.
