Where are our local MP’s when you need them? Their silence is deafening! We gave our petition to Keith Simpson in November and asked him to pass it on to the relevant government ministers. We also gave him three Parliamentary Questions to ask; since then nothing. We met Chloe Smith at a training event facilitated by SMcK Foundation where she spoke on how to run a successful campaign and the approach campaigners should take when lobbying MP’s. She promised to be in touch; since then nothing. Simon Wright was briefed on the campaign and shown the paperwork (petition and questions) and said he would stay in touch; since then nothing.
What about the others? Are they taking the view that the plans to turn Norwich into a settlement the size of Nottingham or Bristol will have no impact on their electorate? If they do then they are burying their head in the sand. Are they not concerned about the amount of money that the County Council are spending on supporting things like the NDR (as mentioned in yesterday's Blog post), GNDP and other pointless projects whilst cutting front line services. Come on guys get real.
Strange that these MP’s were very vocal when they want to be or need votes as they did this time last year. We should give them all a nudge to see where they stand before our Officer led local councils make irreversible decisions. You can find their contact details here:
