ISN'T it time the likes of Bill Armer and Trevor Woolley accepted that we live in a democracy? We, the voters, elect three local councillors per ward to scrutinise Verb 1. scrutinise - to look at critically or searchingly, or in minute detail; "he scrutinized his likeness in the mirror"
scrutinize, size up, take stock and decide what is in the best interests of all the inhabitants
The game is based loosely on the concepts from SameGame. of Kirklees, not just a few with vested interests vested interest
1. Law A right or title, as to present or future possession of an estate, that can be conveyed to another.
2. A fixed right granted to an employee under a pension plan.
This framework has been discussed, debated and amended for the last three years. It's time it was settled. Now would be better than June.
I can understand Mr Armer's objections because he is repeating the party line that public is bad, private is good and all public employees are superfluous to requirements.
However, Mr Woolley is being nave if he thinks the proposed abolition of the Regional Spatial Strategy will save the Green Belt.
It's not really about Kirklees at all. The only reason for its abolition is that major donors to the current government's party coffers want to build thousands of houses in locations (especially the South East) where they can make the most profit.
That's on Green Belt land, Mr Woolley.
