Not listening

York Press: Not listening Not listening

Coun Alexander says ‘we’ve listened’ but, as in the Clarence Street car park debacle, I’m afraid this is not true – they were forced into a U-turn for legal reasons.

I have voted Labour for nearly 50 years.

But this is the most undemocratic council I can remember, so I will not vote for them again while they are led by James Alexander.

So who else is there?

At least they did not alter the traffic lights to smooth the journey for a relative’s wedding party, as the previous administration did.

And in all conscience I could not vote for a party that taxes disabled people for having a spare room for a carer, so can a decent Independent, someone like Mark Warters please stand at this side of York.

P Gledhill, North Lane, Dringhouses, York.

UKIP sounds the party for you and had it not been for the inspector, telling CoYC that their Bridge fines were illegal then nothing would change. It wasn't the people that were listened to.

UKIP? Nobody should be voting for those ar se clowns. Infact, if I find out you have voted for UKIP, I'm going to post illegal immigrants to you and not pay enough postage so you have to pay Vince Cable's mates before you even know what you've been sent.

You are confusing local and national politics. A local bridge closed, bad decisions. A national policy to tax disabled people on an extra bedrom, quite another.
An intelligent person votes on the spread of policies of a party, not against because of a single issue.
Talking of single isssue - do not vote for a single issue party like UKIP.

Leaving the EU is only one policy of UKIP. You should have watched the two debates: Nige v Nick. UKIP have a standpoint on every issue on the political agenda. In fact the only party offering something different, a refreshing change.

UKIP don't offer anything different, just repackaged bile from the extreme right wing of the Tory party.

Farage tries to present himself as a man of the people by grinning manically while downing pint after pint of beer but the reality is that he's a millionaire public schoolboy just like Nickndave.

The main difference between UKIP and the other main parties is that it wants to destroy the NHS and the welfare state faster and more completely than they do.

Like P Gledhill, I'll probably be abandoning Labour (because they've abandoned me and the rest of the working class), and voting for TUSC (Trade Union & Socialist Coalition) or Left Unity if they're standing. If neither of those parties is standing in my ward, I'll maybe compromise by voting Green.

Have to agree that a few more like Mark Warters would not go amiss. He's honest and not afraid to stand up to the politicised officers and Labour bullies.

Ihope that we see more 'proper' independents like Mark being elected in 2015, who care about York and its people first and last.
