Bethany Waye car park

June 18, 2012

I have not yet taken pictures but have just reported the defects in this carpark (1220694).  I was there on Saturday afternoon.  I have asked (1) When an inspection can take place? (2) By when will the defects be repaired?

On the street

November 27, 2011

I sometimes find myself in two minds posting environmental issues that I have picked up on the blog because some find it boring.  Others like to see it so lets give it a go.

1) Potholes in Northumberland Crescent

Opposite 115 and near numbers 150 & 195:


2) Knocked over utility opposite 10 Target

3) Tagging on streetlights in Peninsular Close, Bedfont


Will report all of the above on Monday.


Gould Road

November 19, 2010

The following article brought back something from the General Election period:

I received a lot of contact regarding the issuing of tickets for people parking two wheels on the pavement where there are double yellow lines (near the junction with Staines Road).

Some residents told me that I had lost their vote at the General Election because of the implementation of the cameras in the first place and some would not vote for me because I refused to be critical of the cameras being deployed at all (I was only critical of the poor implementation e.g. no consultation, poor signage).

But I am pleased not to be associated with an article like this one.  This posting is not critical of Mr Keen as I was not part of any conversation between him and the residents, nor have I seen any emails or letters.

But some from Labour were critical of these cameras being deployed and six months after they became the administration, the cameras remain.  Funny that I do not recall them saying when and why they had changed their minds.

Congratulations Alan Keen

May 7, 2010

Knowing how flat out I, and others on my campaign team, have worked not only during this campaign but over a much longer period, this is clearly an impressive result for Labour.  Naturally I feel very disappointed.  There were things that I did not expect such as the following:

  1. For the Labour vote to hold up in Bedfont, Feltham and Hanworth to hold up the way it did;
  2. For the gap between Labour and Conservatives to be as large as it was in Hounslow West & Cranford and, to a lesser extent, Heston

We secured the most votes in Bedfont, Feltham North, Feltham West, Hanworth Park and Hanworth.  However, Labour won by a much greater margin in Heston West, Heston Central, Heston East, Hounslow West and Cranford.

Labour invested heavily in this constituency and I saw over 20 different items of literature from them during the campaign.  They took the threat of the Conservatives seriously.

I respect and accept the decision of residents in this constituency and congratulate Mr Keen.  I do not think I have ever been so tired when giving a speech before but glad I got through it at around 05:30am.  My team could not have done anything more to win this and I will always be grateful to them for their passion and loyalty.

Off to another count at mid-day.  I hope I will continue as a Councillor for Feltham North.
