Silence speaks volumes

Its not uncommon for MPs and Councillors to serve themselves, in most cases there is a good reason to presume that they are either to uneducated to the facts that surround the case or they simply feel it is beneath them. I remember the local and general elections here in medway where by all of the parliamentary candidates were tripping themselves up in an attempt to force the false front onto the residents. We all listened to the candidates and cllrs to try to assure ourselves that the nominated person or persons would best represent us with our fears over GRAIN LNG. We heard many false promises and son stories however one thing that sticks in our mind and the one thing we will never forget especially during the next elections is how the MP Mark Reckless and local conservative councillors have shown an utter contempt for the very people who enabled them to hold office.

We remind ourselves about the half hearted debates and defunct actions of the tory team here in grain, more over we have to look at the inability of the tory team to even so much as communicate with us. There is a great misconception that the grain residents simply want shot of GRAIN LNG, well that is not entirely true. We have called for our representative to sit and talk to us about the safety concerns and errors that have been pointed out in the OFF SIGHT emergency planning, our concerns are born out of our love of our children and families, the conservative party here in medway have by way of silence and refusal to talk and may i add refusal to acknowledge freedom of information requests shown that not only do the value the safety of our children and the quality of life for our children but also that are concerns regarding those matters are not important enough to even debate.

We have been lucky enough to sit and discuss this with a national media organisation who have taken a very interested approach in this matter of Grain LNGand we continue to inform them about the irresponsible in actions of the medway conservatives.

Whilst we continue to press for answers we also remind those people here in medway that the medway conservative party have refused to view our quality of life and the safety of a children less important than commercial gain.

Authority and us “little people”

STOP! Wait one minute! So you think national grid have your interests at heart as a resident? Well i think you already know the answer to that, if not try talking to Mr jack Hope. Jack a long time resident and serious campaigner has some questions and answers to help you along the way.

Now, jack is not only a resident but also 1 part of a team who have really had enough. Jack is so frustrated by the actions an failures of medway council and our local MP Mark Reckless that he himself will be standing in the 2015 elections!! You might think its a waste of time but unless you live with the daily threat of the power station on your doorstep then you wouldn’t really know.

We have all very quickly become aware of the failures of this tory council here in medway but i need to say something on a personal note to the MP Mark Reckless. Remember this mark:

YOU are NOT in power you are in OFFICE, YOU should NOT fight for YOUR Personal beliefs instead YOU should fight for the beliefs of the very people who voted YOU into office to represent them!
