Time for local change?
The Conservatives have ruled North Somerset for all but 18 months since May 1999.
During that time they have closed the Tropicana, libraries and Poppyfields – the dementia care unit in Preanes Green.
They’ve had their chance over many years and have not delivered for local people.
Waste collection farce
North Somerset’s “Recycling Revolution” launched by the Tories has proved to be a complete farce with some residents waiting five weeks or more for their waste to be collected.
The Tories negotiated and signed up to this scheme which has been complete rubbish.
Fairer votes mean more power to you
Britain’s unfair and outdated voting system is at the heart of what’s wrong in our country.
It has allowed Governments and MPs to ignore us and take us for granted.
But all that can change with the Fairer Votes Referendum on 5th May 2011.
Under the fairer Alternative Vote system all votes will count making sure your voice can’t be ignored any more.
A Yes vote on 5th May will put power back in your hands – where it belongs.
