Council priorities

PUBLISHED: 07:00 16 May 2014

With regards to your article about Dray Court (Journal, May 8, page 3) I would ask when our wonderful council became part of North Korea.

Luckily, although I am quite old, I do not have any mobility problems but have a great deal of sympathy with those who do.

This is yet another example of the health and safety zealots not taking into consideration their fellow human beings.

I would suspect that in the life of the residents there have been more important contributions than any petty councillor could make and therefore deserve some more consideration and human kindness in their retirement.

With regard to downsizing their scooters, this could be far more dangerous to them than the likelihood of fire caused by a parked vehicle.

It’s about time the council listened to their voters and deal with important matters such as bus shelters and the moving of the yobs from the Strand for disrespecting the war memorial.

I recall some years ago when the matter of the skateboarders arose, a sign forbidding this was promised within seven days and I am aware that a sign to stop dog fouling in a certain area is still under debate after two years.

Wonderful examples of the effectiveness of our representatives. I will now go away and explode in private.
