It’s just over 11 weeks till election day and I can feel the momentum going, Warsash may not be quite as safe as some people seem to believe. Every day we go canvassing more and more people like our message – that fair is worth fighting for. Fair is something the people of Warsash deserve, and it’s something that isn’t being delivered. We live in a Borough where councillors seem to have this notion that if you get an opinion expressed by well under a percent of the population then that is the green light to go ahead with an idea and say that you’ve “done a proper consultation” and to me (at least) that seems like utter rubbish – Warsash deserves better than this!
You know I must admit, it might be a sense of Deja Vu but I’ve seen that response from the school of Nav’ before! In fact when I was younger that was pretty much their “stock answer” to any query regarding parking. Could they just simply not care? Someone said to me once, when I was talking about canvassing, “Surely you could fight bigger battles?” and I simply said “No, these are local issues – what people tell me about and really if I want to get anywhere with making the slightest difference, these are the issues I must deal with”. Big or small these sort of things (like yellow lines) affect people’s daily lives, and someone has to take them seriously… might as well be me!
