All those who are allotment tenants and have seen their rent go up from £7.50, to £48 per year, should remember this when you go to vote in May.... :WTF:

UKIP all day long.

The reasons some think I shouldn't are the reasons I think I should.

Received Garry Perkins leaflet today.

No mention of Wi-Fi amongst his past achievements. If the project was as successful as Rod Bluh suggests, I am surprised that he didn't mention it.

Perhaps Garry is much too modest to brag about his part in such a successful project, that has brought so much wealth to the Borough, as Wi-Fi?
What's it all about?

I have Harriet Maltby's leaflet here, standing in Penhill and Upper Stratton, she's played clever one inasmuch as she put it through early, so people - but not many - are asking why haven't they seen the other party leaflets.

IT's A3 and glossy.  There are 12 sort of promises on the inside one of which, if she gets in, she will find she will get to know me rather well in my effort to keep her to it!

One naughty, in that she has included a photo of a local group receiving something from Justin - and that is something that shouldn't be done, putting their charitable status at risk. Making look like they endorse the candidate I mean - the group is very good at remaining aloof from Politics. I can't remember where or what the gift was about, had I known it was going to be used in a political document I may well have advised them not to accept it.

Is that the same leaflet on which he declares unstinting support for local business and community..... then you find the leaflet was printed in Grimsby or Hull or somewhere like that?  Can't quote the actual location as the leaflet is probably being recycled as I type :)

Here is what Garry has to say:-

Council Tax - Frozen Again
The Conservative Council has frozen Council Tax for 4 years. In stark contrast to when Labour hiked it by 42% in 3 years.

Local Regeneration
Garry is delivering the regeneration our Town needs. Regent Circus development is nearly finished, bringing a new cinema, supermarket and restaurants. The £65 million Oasis redevelopment plans are progressing well.

Supporting Local Schools
Garry welcomes the £4M expansion of Haydonleigh school to help accommodate the growing number of local pupils. He also supports the proposal for a new Secondary School in North Swindon.

The Haydon Centre
Garry is committed to supporting our popular local community centre and ensuring its long term future.

EU Referendum
It is our sovereign right as a nation to have a final say on our borders, our laws and our lives. Only the Conservatives can give local residents THEIR say on Europe.

Improving Highways and Potholes
Garry welcomes the significant additional money to fill potholes and make improvements to our roads. He also wishes to widen the road by Morrison's to improve traffic flows and upgrade the crossing on The Street.

Quality of Life
We will continue to tackle litter, dog fouling and graffiti. Garry will work with the Police to tackle anti-social behaviour and he is a member of the Wiltshire Fire Authority.

North Swindon Library
Our popular and well used local library is an integral part of life in North Swindon. Garry will ensure the continued success of this essential local service.

Working Together
Garry will work with local MP Justin Tomlinson, Swindon Council, Haydon Wick Parish Council and local residents to represent our community.

Listening to Residents
Garry will be a highly visible and hard working local councillor committed to communicating with residents through door knocking, monthly surgeries and newsletters.

Budget - Savings Boost
The ISA limit boost will help people get more from their savings and the Chancellor has also rightly given pensioners, not banks, control over their pension fund.

Purton Road & Moredon Park
We have delivered improvements to the parking and waiting regulations at Purton Road shops and Moredon Park which benefits local residents, visitors and shoppers alike.

Local Regeneration
The £65 million Oasis redevelopment plans are progressing well unless you believe stories about financial difficulties.

The Haydon Centre
Garry is committed to supporting our popular local community centre and ensuring its long term future by handing it over to a developer on a 99 year lease

I can't see the relevance of UKIP in a local election. EU membership, immigration policy etc are decided by central government.

I remember the 2012's when Nick Martin was in the Gents ranting that Mary, she who is now trying to join him in the supposedly safe seat of Shaw. had lost in Lydiard Freshbrook due to the UKIP vote. 

So they have some relevance to the local scene even if they hoover up disaffected Conservatives, which they will.

I wonder what will happen to Nick this time if Mary actually fails and for that matter his own position within the Conservative Party?

Would they dare to deselect him next year/

Local Regeneration
The £65 million Oasis redevelopment plans are progressing well unless you believe stories about financial difficulties.

Do you think Garry should be proud of the fact that his partner at the Oasis came back to the table to renegotiate the Lease because they could not finance it?  Mind you Lead Member for Leisure Councillor Williams clearly stated at the Cabinet Forum on last Wednesday Night that the Council had investigated Morai and they did not find anything that undermined their confidence in them.  So if they are not concerned what right do we have to be?

Some Documents:

The Haydon Centre

What I would like to know is what they hope to gain from doing this?  I wonder if the Labour Party have decided to actually use this fact and campaign on this issue because once it is gone it is gone without undoubtedly phenomenal financial penalties and as we are already £120m in debt why do we want to add to it?


EU Referendum
It is our sovereign right as a nation to have a final say on our borders, our laws and our lives. Only the Conservatives can give local residents THEIR say on Europe but you have no say over religion. We are a Christian country because David says so.

Good one that!! :D  If Cameron wanted to give us a referendum we would have had one already.  I would not trust him or Garry to deliver on this anything further than I could throw Swindon!!

Her Goes with Ms Maltby's then:

Council Tax frozen Again
Our conservative Council has frozen council tax for the 4th year running, keeping bill down for families an pensioners.

Backing Local Schools
Our excellent schools are benefitting from £7.8 million of additional funding through the Pupil Premium.

Boosting Swindon's skills:
The new university Technical College will give young people skills vital to our local economy, getting them making, inventing and working in our town.

EU Referedum:
It is our sovereign right as nation to have the final say on our borders, our laws and our lives. Only the Conservatives can give local residents THEIR say on Europe (nice pic of Justin in front of I support... banner'

Local Parks:
We are blessed to have excellent parks, Stratton Wood and Sevenfields (it's two words Harriet) Nature Reserve. I will ensure they are kept clean and well maintained for the community to enjoy.

Budget Savings Boost:
The new ISA limit boost will help people get more from their savings and the Chancellor has also rightly given pensioners, not banks, control over their own pension fund.

Supporting Local Businesses:
Having worked in a  family business, I know the importance of local businesses for jobs, growth and the community.

Town Centre Regeneration:
the Regent Circus development is nearly finished, bringing a new cinema, supermarket and restaurants to our town centre.

Income tax:
I am a proud member of the Conservatives, over 80,00 Swindon residents have had an income tax cut worth on average £700 a year.

Supporting Community Groups:
I thoroughly support the excellent contribution local voluntary groups make to our community and I will do all I can to help them even more.

Fixing potholes:
Our local roads have suffered the bad weather and I welcome the £200 million fund now available to help fix potholes. Work has already begun!

Local Library Protected:
Despite budget pressures, the Upper Stratton Library has been protected, giving local residents continued access to this excellent service.

Really - so the rumour that Morai owe SBC money for energy bills (they couldn't split the meters) is just a load of guff ?

Yes because there appears to be no one to take him on, that is head on, in Hayden Wick.

Sadly the person who could have done that is Steph Exell who chose to challenge the strong Conservative Ward of Shaw instead.  As a Hayden Wick Parish Councillor she was halfway there, wasn't she?

Interesting to note just how many people talk to me on the doorsteps about our Garry and his Digital City Caper, but I am not sure whether it is Mr Wi-fi or Mr Mayor who will damage the Conservative (Mrs Martin's) vote the most!
