When I first became a school governor at Freemantle school it was a small infant school. Today it is a primary with 500 children. Similarly …

Labour’s Late Night Levy Will Hit Local Pubs In Freemantle

On Wednesday at Full Council, Labour will look to push through a new tax on pubs in the city. This ‘Late Night Levy’ was initially billed as a measure to ensure that pubs and clubs in the city centre, pay more towards the ‘costs’ of the city centre night time economy. It is claimed that the funds raised will be spent on policing and street cleaning, but the worry is that the money will simply backfill other budget cuts.It has since become clear that this …

We Are Better Together

Well done to the Daily Echo for its bold editorial stance in campaigning to save the United Kingdom. The Scottish Independence vote doesn’t just affect the Scots, it affects the whole of the UK, and whilst we English are denied a vote, we should not be silent about our views.The Union between Scotland and England has lasted over 300 years and in my view served both countries very well. We are better together – safer and more prosperous.Real risk lies ahead for an independent Scotland; …

Ahead of the last council election they were peddling the message that the Council’s Community Language Service was safe with them and that the Conservatives would end it. I recall one Labour Councillor, now the Communities Cabinet Member, telling a packed public meeting this in 2012. Now Labour are in power they are axing the service. When the Conservatives ran the city we protected Community Languages because we valued the work of all the dedicated …
