Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

I'd heard there was going to be some mention of the demise of Hyndburn but I forgot to watch. Come to think of it - it might have been Granada Reports!

Hyndburn Borough Council won't be able to sue you, as they'll no longer exist, to persue you through the courts.

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

So who is to weild the big axe then? If they dont have someone will there be a raffle or lottery to decide? I might be free for a while and if supplied with enough spray paint will willing start changing the signs.

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

Do they ever actually stop to find out what the majority of people think before they start wasting our money?

No, thought not. (Now where have I heard that phrase before? )

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

Well the Accy Observer site is showing 56% for and 44% against - that to me looks close enough to warrant a full consultation with locals.

Just a thought is this the same council that cares so much about ACCRINGTON that they pulled the sponsorship of the town's football team?????

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

I think we should have an AccyWeb poll.

I wouldn't put it past this council to declare the Observer poll to be an overwhelming majority - I wonder if those who voted in favour have actually considered the knock on effect and repercussions?

Credit where credit is due, I sent them an e-mail the other day and I have had a letter back this morining finally clearing it all up. Just a shame the telephone service is a bit pointless if they have neither the common sense or authority to make decisions

Re: Hyndburn to be axed.

One curious thing about the poll in the Accy Obs - it was at 46% Yes and 54% No on Sunday evening when I cast my vote. When I had another look mid morning on Monday it had suddenly switched to favour the Yes option. Strange methinks.
