I was out and about most of the day (& evening before) in Feltham North delivering the latest Half Year Report and, as always, I thought I would share some of the things I saw and intend to report. Before that, it is worth saying that the day reinforced the immense damage that many MPs have done to politics in this country. I represent a fantastic ward with friendly people living in it but even the banter with one or two people hit home to me how bad things are. I was out in the morning with a friend and my mother. She tells me one gentleman said to her that she was brave to be delivering leaflets in the current climate. What MPs – of all main parties – have done makes me very annoyed.
Anyway, here are some of the things that I saw. I saw these two in the carpark by the entrance to Nursery Close (from Hounslow Road):
I noticed the following Notice Board in Hounslow Road, which certainly does not look the part:
And, in Mill Way:
One key decision that is due for the Executive is on pavement parking (starting in the West Area of the Borough). This picture illustrates, in my view, the danger of not allowing pavement parking in a street like this. The alternative in allowing access is to put double yellows on one side of the road but this will remove lots of parking capacity and is something I would not support.
A few people have responded to the latest leaflet and I am up to date with raising enquiries – thanks to all those who have got in touch so far!
