According to my MPs blog 15th October is blog action day. What am I doing for Blog Action Day on 15th October? Come to think of it, I have a list of local issues that might be worth commenting on. Now I would leave a comment on his blog but I know it usually doesn’t get published so I’ll do my own and see if it catches a cold.
Action to restore free car parking for disabled people at Sandwell Hospitals.
Lobby to get our doctors surgery which closed replaced.
Campaign for meaningful consultations with our Primary Care Trust not the take it or leave approach we currently have.
To fight for the sighting of our proposed new clinic to be in an area that will not contribute to the traffic chaos at Scot Arms Junction but support properly the residents of Hamstead and Newton not Great Barr
Campaign to have charges removed for pensioners for car parking at Sandwell Park farm and to remove the entrance charge during week days.
Lobby to get the outrageous increases applied to meals on wheels reversed.
Campaign for the compulsory provision of customer toilets in all department stores.
Bring up the provision of Traffic Lights at Junction of Hamstead Road and Newton Road
Carry on my campaign for more transparency of what our councillors actually do.
I wonder will I get any political support for any of this?
Nah I don’t think so but it will make the blog very contentious. I might even look at some outside issues for my contribution.
