Just brick us all in

SO the council seems to be in favour of terminating the South Bank loop bus service (No 11).
Thinking back about the council, what have they ever done for South Bank? Nothing. Messrs Merritt, Frazer and Gunnell seem to think it does not exist otherwise they would be protecting that service. It is without doubt the worse service in York.
Years ago, South Bank was under the Knavesmire ward and we were separate from Micklegate and Scarcroft; then we were merged. Those so-called councillors welcomed us with open arms and what for? So that they could get their mitts on the extra money from the Knavesmire ward and spend it on the aforementioned wards and not us.
I’ve used the bus service many times, seeing old people use it to go shopping because all we have is a butcher, bakery shop and two general stores. Those poor old people will have to do without and remain marooned.
I suggest building a new Berlin Wall around South Bank and if there is a gate throw away the key and forget us.
Shame on you mentioned councillors for not even saving the South Bank route.
