Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

Who's silly idea was this in the first place to call Accrington and District 'Hyndburn'? send the bill to them. PB is on dodgy ground and I quote from Accy Observer "It will not cost the one penny more on the council tax bill" and a pig just flew past my window.

I think also Gayle that there is not enough information about where the people live to warrant this is a true reflection of the electorate's feelings, etc. Polls can be 'tweaked' easily to lean one way or the other.

Did my own little run-down of letters to the Observer on this subject:-

People who wrote 'for' and lived in the 'Districts' ..... trois points

People who wrote 'for' who lived in Accy ... 3 letters.

People who wrote 'against' and lived in the 'Districts' ... 4 letters .. think 5 actually, one opinion not too clear, just stating could be a bad idea.

So 6 letters for and 5 against.

Absence of any letter from people who lived in Accrington 'against'

Course seeing as the Observer last week, with their front page comment were supporting this change, might have something to do with the letters they published..

Still seething about all this and the unnecessary use of public money

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

If the cost isn't going to be added to the council tax bill then some other service is obviously going to have to suffer by having money withdrawn from it to cover the expense. I'd like to see just what it all is going to cost and where they plan on making the savings in order to finance it.

I wonder if any of the organisations with Hyndburn in their name will consider suing for compensation? That could be interesting.

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

I'll note again in this thread, not one person on this forum, out of nearly 8,000 members, gives their location as Hyndburn.

Therefore, it isn't relevant to us.

Then what's the justification for changing the administrative name?

Precisely. Just another excuse for PB to waste money.

Because Peter doesn't like explaining where Hyndburn is, in the middle of a Gentleman's Excuse Me, at the Annual UK Council Leader's Ball.
