IT NOW seems that the start of the demolition and re-building of the Tropicana is going to be put back even further, owing to the inability of our council to get it right.

The blame seems to have been placed by Councillor Elfan Ap Rees onto Gordon Brown and the credit crunch.

As much as I, and I am sure many other residents do not have time for our current Government, the blame must be placed firmly on our council who for the past 10 years have refused to listen to the residents of Weston and have wasted the taxpayers money on expensive schemes that have led to nothing.

All we wanted and continually asked for was a covered swimming pool.

It now seems that we will have to wait a further 12 months before work, if any, is started, the excuse being that the Tropicana has been given or leased to Birse the company carrying out the seafront enhancement work for offices and storage.

Who on the council made this decision when it was common knowledge that the building was scheduled to be demolished in preparation for the new Tropicana?

The contract with Henry Boot should be cancelled and the councillors responsible be sacked and replaced by people who will listen to what the residents want not what they decide on.

We have been ignored for too long. Council elections will be coming along and it is up to the residents of Weston to decide to act, remove them and vote in councillors who will listen to our needs, then we may get the swimming pool that is so wanted for our town.
