Gazette column: Stop messing with our local services

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about vital local services and how, with the axing of the ambulance service in Cam, cuts to such provisions could mess with people’s lives.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should local services be kept? Or are they simply not as essential any more? Let me know.

My column’s out now: Police cuts are driving crime rates up

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is all about crime rates and how they are linked to the cuts in the Gloucestershire & UK police force. To read it, simply click to my Column page.

Have you noticed a rise in crime? Do you think the police force cuts are not helping? Or do you think we just have to get on with it?
