Nanny's Park Rangers II

Nanny's Park Rangers II
Further to my article about Nanny's Park Rangers who are tasked with questioning unaccompanied adults who walk around Telford Town Park, lest they be child molesters, I dropped an email to David Cameron the very same day.

Here is an extract of the reply that I received yesterday (the speed of response was interesting, as they normally take a week or so to write back. I suspect I hit a nerve!):

"I am writing on behalf of David Cameron to thank you for your recent email.

We are grateful to you for taking the time to get in touch and for bringing your concerns to our attention. Your comments have been noted. As I am sure you can appreciate, even in his position as Leader of the Opposition, David has no influence in local matters taken outside of his constituency and by locally elected councillors. I have however, passed you email on to the Party Chairman, so that she is aware of your views

All very well, but if Cameron has no influence over "local matters" what is the point of electing a Tory government?

It is at local level that Nanny's malign influence is most keenly felt, because she has empowered (both by statute, and by "blind eye") local councils with powers and responsibilities that they have never had before nor should they have.

Local councils are being used by Nanny to exert control.

The Tory party needs to come up with a coherent plan to curtail the power of both central and local government, otherwise it will be pointless voting for them.

Get that message across to Cameron via this link: Cameron

    It matters not which political colour the local councils are, the real power lies with the so called public servants that work within the councils. Too many of these are infected by common purpose and it seems the locally elected councillors give them free reign to do as they please. Even my own council, which is very much a Conservative council, are clients of the pro EUSSR Common Purpose Organisation.....Mr Cameron should be getting councillors that stand under the Conservative banner, to find out why Conservative councils use such an organisation.
    There is much on the web about Common Purpose, especially in relation to its percieved influence within the police force, public bodies and local government and it makes frightening reading in my view.

    I sent David Cameron an email on a previous matter of concern on this website, and received a very similar response. I agree with you, Ken, that he should get off his arse and sort out his local councillors.

    Is this park a public park, ie: paid for and maintained by taxpayers? If so, how can Nanny keep anyone, unless they are an OBVIOUS menace (drunk,fighting etc) out of a taxpayer funded park.

    Or is it privately owned? In which case, Nanny has no jursidiction over who stays and who goes.


  4. Common Purpose up to their usual tricks:

  5. What a feeble cop-out!

    If a party leader believes he "has no influence in local matters taken outside of his constituency and by locally elected councillors" what on earth is he doing "leading" the party? And why do the local councillors call themselves party members if they are not influenced by their party leader's views?

    I got the same reply from DC but received the following reply from Telford Council:

    "Thank you for registering your concerns about the Town Park and the recent publicity about our child protection policy.

    I would like to reassure you that there is absolutely no suggestion whatsoever that people who visit our park, with or without children, are routinely approached by our staff for no apparent reason.

    Unfortunately a letter sent last month to a resident incorrectly stated the situation and has mistakenly led people to conclude that the Council stops adults in Telford Town Park. This is most certainly not the case.

    The Town Park is an extremely popular destination for residents and visitors and we attract over 1 million visitors each year. We work hard to create a safe and enjoyable experience and as always everyone is most welcome.

    We deeply regret any confusion that may have been caused, in particular to the many people who use and enjoy Telford Town Park.

    When he says
    "We are grateful to you for taking the time to get in touch and for bringing your concerns to our attention. Your comments have been noted",
    that just means
    "Oh dear! Whether I say I agree or say I disagree that will upset somebody so it's safer to say nothing of substance as usual and hope he'll go away and leave me alone."

    Had Telford and Wrekin Council remained a Labour run Council, i'll guarentee Cameron's response would've been completely different.
