I found the letters page to be full of interesting views

I THINK in the reply to my previous letter from Paul Cannings he seems to have missed the point, it being if a person prefers to ride a bike on aknown busy road it gives them no right to cycle on a footpath occasionally or not, the same as regular speeding, red light jumping, etc, of car drivers.
To suggest how I use my spare time is rather condescending and people on bicycles on pavements are certainly not my best friends.
I found your letters page of this week very interesting.
From Mr Cannings – “Traffic planning determination to give the majority of road space priority to motor vehicles”.
The Charlton resident, who discovered parish and Test Valley Borough councils allow the public only three minutes to speak and the council are not obliged to answer!
Paul C Ayers – “What was particularily disappointing was the fact not one local councillor or even our local MP showed any inclination to question the proposal and demonstrating a complete disregard for many people they represent!”
Patricia Winters – “I’m sure my letter will have nobearing on anything this council decides is good for the Andover people”
David Borrett – “We seem to be engaging in a lot of complicated ideas in order to increase business activity in the High St areas”!
Peter Sumner – “During Cllr Carr’s rule I have seen the steady decline in our town”!
Russell Tarrant – “Test Valley Borough Council put in a complaint that the table and chair were damaging the Time Ring”
I think at that time Test Valley Borough Council called my Cenotaph campaign a pressure group!
Finally Liz Ferla – “Test Valley Borough Council need to remember who they work for – the people”
When the councillors were looking for election they went to the people, and now when the people go to them they are ignored!
So the question is – who exactly are you representing? Evidently not the people of Andover!
