Getting the roads sorted

March 15th, 2010 No comments

We are making great progress with our new roads program.  The previous administration badly neglected the painting of our roads, and this is significant factor in the impression that the roads themselves are in a bad condition.

Often the roads are not in that bad a technical condition but the signs and lines let them down, that said of course the roads are also in a generally poor state and even with our greatly increased spending its going to take 10 years or more to get them back to a proper condition.

There will also be a significant surface dressing program.  Previously the technical condition had been so bad we only had funds for the very worse roads, and that meant that many wards such as College got almost nothing.  Fortunately that will now change.

Lord Mandelson failing working class

July 28th, 2009 No comments

Lord Mandelson today claimed that Universities must recruit more working-class students to justify an increase in tuition fees.

This is a really poor show to say the least – the Government has got it wrong again and is trying to pass the buck to David Cameron Cabinet in waiting.

University education is already understandard and too expensive, we need better standards before higher fees, in the current financial climate the last thing students need is higher fees.  Pandering to the working classes isn’t going to work especially when you ask them to pay more!
