Gazette column: It’s time the Tories stopped blaming the poor

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” (today out on a Friday…) 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 the bedroom tax and food banks, and why, with recent outbursts on the subjects by Conservative politicians, it’s time the Tories stopped blaming the poor.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Are those on the breadline being lampooned or are they responsible for their own situation? Let me know.

Gazette column: Why can’t councils just get stuff done?

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” (today out on a Friday…) 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 potholes, Uley and why on earth councils just can’t get things done that little bit faster.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Potholes, councils – do they move fast enough to make our communities better or not? Let me know.
