North/South divide of council

I WAS appalled to read about the north/south divide of north Somerset Council (NSC) in last week's paper.

The ruling Conservatives should be booted out immediately for their disgraceful behaviour towards Weston as they are now blatantly favouring the towns in the north of the district.

They are clearly abusing power to further their own ends whatever they may be?

If we believe what they tell us, the 'savings' available to them by moving hundreds of jobs from Weston to Clevedon are considerably less than the additional income available to them if they simply treat parking in the north of the district in the same ways as they are treating it in the south.

North Somerset, "Charge the same in places like Clevedon and Portishead as you charge in Weston". What could be fairer than that?

It is clear to me these people (NSC) are discriminating against the people of Weston and we shouldn't allow it.
