Answers are given and they're labelled as excuses.

Now surely that is something we can all agree on whatever our "political" stance .

Our Graham..he's a real star...

Responding on twitter to someone who pointed out that newspaper sales of the Sun have fallen by almost 10%, he tweets this pearl of wisdom..

'Dramatically falling newspaper sales not helped by people not believing what they read. TV regulation for press would help.'

Hey Graham...mind giving us your insight on falling voter turnout? Do you think TV regulation would help?

e.g....

If MP's fail to comply with their election promises, they lose their MP status, like broadcasters who fail to comply lose their broadcasting rights.

If MP's fail to be impartial to political party and vote according to the wishes of their constituents, they lose their MP status, like broadcasters who fail to be impartial lose their broadcasting rights.

Then again, maybe the falling newspaper sales are down to people being fed up with stories about Justin Beiber, One Direction and Simon Cowell and get their information from selectively surfing the net.

Talk about an out of touch MP.........

Come on Guinness cut Graham some slack, he's never been in touch, after all he's only voting fodder for Mr. Ed, when Ed says jump the only question he ask's is how high great one The only local MP I know who voted against his party policy was Ken Hargreaves who refused to back the Community Charge, even under immense pressure from the whips office, mind you Ken became MP to represent the people of Hyndburn not to further his own political ambitions, unlike others.

I wonder why the original tweeter picked on the Sun, it is still the UK's most read newspaper according to the Press Gazette in this link NRS figures say Sun is the most read UK newspaper in print and online | Press Gazette

Re: Aren't you glad you voted for this numpty?

yes rishton has BB1 as its postcode and is regarded as Blackburn for car insurance purposes and so is heavily loaded as a major claim fraud area by certain members of the Blackburn area who are constantly looking to make money out of all parts of the system,

MP?s super-council plan comes under fire - Accrington Observer

I've suspected for some time that Jones has a god complex, but now I'm convinced that he's touched in the head and totally lost the plot.

Lets take a quote of his...

“In times of austerity we have to think about working collaboratively. We have six finance officers and six heads of legal service, plus chief executives, plus a whole host of bureaucrats down at Preston.”

Let me fix that for him....

'In times of austerity we have to think about working collaboratively. We have umpteen MP's representing East Lancashire, plus umpteen associated hangers on, plus umpteen private secretaries, plus a whole host of bureaucrats down at Westminster'

Hey Ken..what do you think of your hero now that he's attempting to stab his own local party councillors and constituents in the back?

Anyone of ANY political persuasion that puts an 'X' against this self serving buffoons name next time is certifiable. He is to the electorate of Hyndburn what Venkys are to the supporters of Blackburn Rovers or what Pol Pot was to the Cambodians...an abomination!
There is no substance and your main argument is based on personal abuse. Hyndburn's future should be based on intelligence. The majority of people will read the above post and learn nothing.

Hyndburn is a great place and I'll continue to be a strong advocate to make things better for constituents and the borough.

Good luck with your personal abuse.

Re: Aren't you glad you voted for this numpty?

The debate about County Hall (72%) and the Districts (15%) is important. There is foi t there is duplication neither is their any doubt that the County element is remote.

Britain has a significant number of unitary authorities, all the metropolitan areas. It is also clear that they are be fitting significantly from City deals and that having two authorities causes confusion and when they compete with each other provide a disservice.

There is no doubt that we are paying several people to do the same job and Hyndburn has merged some services with Blackburn and Rossendale.

If we want deep cuts we have to make tough decisions. The luxury of multiple people doing the same job in each area is costly and cutting front line services to protect these 'multiple senior highly paid jobs' is not the choice I would make.

If we want strong leadership, if we want 72% of services brought back to East Lancashire, if we want to end multiple high paid jobs, have 60 just councillors instead of 300, to be taken seriously by government and be able to lobby government, then we need a unitary east lancs council.

Some would disagree but I'd be interested in the rational for keeping the status quo.

Re: Aren't you glad you voted for this numpty?

I can accept Grahams comments on saving cost but is that all we want?
The current services we receive are not up to standard now and I would worry that services would not improve if we became a big unitary authority. You only have to look at Blackburn to see they have the same problems we do. The roads are a mess and their parks are not looked after well enough - 2 issues we have in Hyndburn that are obvious for all to see as you walk/drive around the Borough. Becoming a unitary authority did not solve those issues for them. Many people from Darwen I speak with feel they are neglected more now than before the merger.
