Back in Spring 2010 our local MP, Keith Simpson, wrote to a constituent about the proposed Rackheath eco-town stating that it was a "classic example of the Labour government attempting to ignore the views of local people". So what has changed since then? Well the Labour government is no longer in power but the coalition government which replaced it is acting in exactly the same way!
Mr Simpson went on in this pre-election letter saying "Now we are faced with another attempt to put an eco town in our community. Many of you have written, emailed or spoken to me about the proposal for the Rackheath Eco-Town, Overwhelmingly local opinion is opposed to the proposal as outlined because of the sheer scale of the development".
So Mr Simpson was returned as our local MP after the election last May but has since done NOTHING to support the local community in its fight to prevent this massive development. No further words or actions of support. No parliamentary questions as we requested. So what has happened in the interim? Someone has had pressure put upon them by the look of things!
