Children's centres consultation taken offline

This Is Wiltshire: Anne Snelgrove Anne Snelgrove

PARENTS battling to save Swindon’s children’s centres are frustrated that an online consultation about their future isn’t working.

Swindon Council is reviewing the services with the aim of saving £770,000 as it tries to make £48m in budget cuts over the next three years. This could see seven of the town’s 12 children’s centres close and result in many job losses.

The consultation launched yesterday and is running until October 3.

Anne Snelgrove, Labour’s South Swindon Parliamentary candidate, is working with the families in their campaign to save the resources.

She said: “I had an email from a mum yesterday who couldn’t find the consultation online. I did a search and sent the link to her and then I asked the council to make the consultation more prominent. I did this purely to publicise the consultation. I got an email back saying this was okay and now it isn’t even online.

“The consultation is supposed to be open and people want to have their say but they can’t. The most important thing is that the consultation is back online as quickly as possible.”

When will the publicity for this arrogant, self obsessed, useless woman ever end? She would turn up to the opening of an envelope if it would get her in the public eye! She is the epitome of why so many don't bother to vote any more with people like her vying to run the town or the country.

Are we really going to have to endure daily, 'I'm deeply concerned' photos of Ms Snelgrove for the next 10 months?

That's a rhetorical question... of course we are!

Looks like a certain someone has a rather keen interest in desperately attempting to try and ensure Ms Snelgrove doesn't come off looking bad from these articles.

Still, we're having roast dinner this evening, looking forward to that as I do like a bit of Gravey.

You really have to get away from this rediculous idea that paying taxes are like some sort of piggy bank where you are "entitled" to something. More than 50% of adults take more than they contribute and the top 5% of earners contribute 35% of the tax. The rich subsidise the poor, the hard working subsidise the lazy, those with no children subsidise those with children etc etc.

We need to make sure that those who really need help and support get it and those who are able, take more responsibility for their life choices and end this "expectation" culture that everything should be provided no matter what, that is both grossly unfair and totally unsustainable.

Of course I'm not 'threatening' you.

People posted their personal opinions over a person who has chosen to make themselves a public figure - an elected one at that.

However, YOU then tried to threaten people that legal cases would be brought against them. If they are, then the same may well happen to you, given some of your previous comments. Just stating a fact.

So, no, I am not 'threatening yourself', at all. Just pointing out that you shouldn't threaten others over posting their opinions, especially when things you've posted about others are actually worse.

We all know that you and your ilk want everyone and everything banned, apart from your comments and agenda, but thankfully it's a free country and people are perfectly entitled and at liberty to exprees their opinions.

Nothing that's been posted in this thread is libelous and nothing in this thread has been posted that hasn't been posted about just about every other politician throughout history.

Now, I'd politely suggest you calm down and stop playing the victim - as it tends to make you look rather unstable.
