We will continue to fight

I WAS so pleased to read Marc Bevan's letter in last week's Mercury, it cannot only be the common folk like me that can see through the dictatorial ways of the leader Nigel Ashton.

I WAS so pleased to read Marc Bevan's letter in last week's Mercury, it cannot only be the common folk like me that can see through the dictatorial ways of the leader Nigel Ashton.

I recently attended the senior citizens meeting in February, where he was extremely rude to the Mercury and various other people, myself included, who are not permitted to have a voice at any meeting he is involved with.

At the Adults Social Services and Housing meeting last Tuesday, which I had been invited to attend, he also endeavoured to control the discussion on the closure of Poppyfields, although he had no vote at that meeting, but insisted they did not extend the consultation period to April 10, due to the inability of North Somerset Council to get letters out to stakeholders on time, but I was very proud of the chair and deputy chair who demanded that the council has to be seen to be doing things correctly, and they insisted the date be changed to April 10 to conform.

Maybe Nigel Ashton should try to stop councillors demanding businesses in Weston remove our petitions in their shops and offices. What is he and the councillors afraid of, we are going to get the public on our side? They must be afraid of something, there is no law against having petitions in private premises.

His insistence he is always right only shows how little he knows about the taxpayers of North Somerset and the fighting spirit of people when they know the wrong decision has been made by the council, and we will continue to fight for our rights.
