LETTERS PAGES AND EDITORIAL 'COMMENT' - CRAWLEY NEWS - JULY 19 2006
SPORT - K2 PROBLEMS ("Not so leisurely getting to class"). Well, if you build a PFI-financed sports centre on school playing fields, you're going to have problems...
HOUSING - COUNCIL HOUSING ("Closing the door on housing critics" by the Tory Executive Member for Housing). 'Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we first practise to deceive...'. Tories and New Labour are both guilty of deceit.
TRANSPORT - SPECIALLY-ALLOCATED PARKING SPACES IN SUPERMARKETS (5 Letters!) - If it's very busy, I take the point. People without little angels, and those with disabilities, should have specially allocated parking spaces nearer the supermarket - and the rest of us should not encroach on their territory. But, I have to make a personal admission (don't tell anybody) - if I'm getting cash, and/or going for a quick shop in Sainsbury's West Green, and the parking area is practically deserted, I park in those parking places nearest the cash machine - shock and horror!
HEALTH - CRAWLEY HOSPITAL SWITCHBOARD AND COMPLAINTS TO GARY WALKER ("What can we believe about hospitals"). Same letter in Crawley Observer ("Problems", July 19), along with a feature "Walk-in centre? Sorry, that's ex-directory". Clearly there are problems - big problems. I really wish the Chief Executive (and those who are pulling his strings) would stop using taxpayers' money to feed us bullshit...they're nearly getting as bad as West Sussex County Council !
