Re: New Bus Station

Some excellent suggestions there.
We went into town yesterday morning...the market was non existent(almost)...Broadway was deserted.
I did not look at the new Bus station to see if all the residents of Accrington were queued up to get out of what is a very depressing town...the only positive thing I can come up with is that one of the holes in the tarmac on Peel St has been patched up now the buses no longer need the road to be smooth.
Is there anybody running this town or are they all trying to run it into the ground..because I have news for you...It is already there!

Litter Police? I walked past the old bus station yesterday already got fences up for the no doubt inevitable bog closing ceremony, I needed to get rid of a dog end, the bin was behind the wire fencing out of reach.
Before we get more litter police can we have more litter bins within reach of the public?

Re: New Bus Station

Why will anyone need a car park when the market is stuffed, the shops(what there are) are dire.
I am getting to the point where I do not like going into town at all.......and from the look of the town yesterday i am not on my own.
it is time that those who are supposed to have the town at the heart of their agenda sat up and took notice of what is going on...take off those rose coloured spectacles.....it doesn't matter how many flowers you put on a dung heap it still stinks!

Someone like an M.P. that cares more about his community than which divvy is in charge of his party?

Is that what you mean?

Re: New Bus Station

I went down dinner timeish today, on the bus, the new bus station looks very nice, very few people in it though, had a good look round and went for a brew, me usual cafe is normally very busy weds dinner, not today Dont get carried away less, an M.P. i always thought was elected by his constituents to serve them, but as 95% of em are too stupid to think for themselves, that seems to have vanished.

I think you have to,perhaps, start with people on the council.

I really think anything to do with the state of our town is probably 'small beer' to our elected representative at the Palace of Westminster....there is neither kudos nor money in it for him.
He probably has bigger fish to fry(for now at any rate).

Perhaps that is wrong thinking?

Once every 4 or 5 years we get a chance to send someone to London supposedly to represent we, the people, if he/she can't see that, then they are unfit for purpose.

I want someone that puts our area above party politics, someone that can demonstrate to our Councillors that in fighting is not the priority, the people must come above all the party and chamber bickering.

Another General Election can't be far away, I hope all that are put forward by any of the parties will keep this in mind, it is after all, what at least 95% of us desire.

Re: New Bus Station

I wonder if Corbyn gets re-elected the MPs that voted "No Confidence" will resign from their seats in parliament as a matter of principal? Perhaps I am too naive.

Yes, that sums it up very well. Do you think that we expect too much?

I had high hopes that we had a person who would do all of that.....but, sadly I have been disappointed, let down. Shame on me.I won't be making the same mistake twice.

Re: New Bus Station

I have asked the question before - why should party politics have any influence on local. or even regional councils. Surely all councillors should only attempt to provide what is best for the electorate that they represent.

iv often said party labels should be removed from county and ocal concil the only time it matters is for government

if people didnt have to choose a side and the only choice was the person and what they can bring to the table it would remove a lot of sillyness and petty squabbling

i dont have examples to hand but its been reported on here that a good idea for the area has been turned away simply on the basis that the opposing party suggested or wanted it which i have no doubt hs happened in both directions

its no better than kids saying dont play with that kid because hes different or comes from a different area of accy
