Whatever happened to that faintly ludicrous Annesley Abercorn guy with his London Bus? Haven't seen him shopping in Marple recently....although I might have missed him in Greggs last week...
Well as it happens I met him canvassing with Annette Finny along Stockport Rd last week. To be honest I found them both to be very knowledgeable on issues such as the proposed supermarket on Hibbert Lane, Connect 2 and the Rose Hill super school.
Both felt that our current elected members failed to consult on major issues and gave assurances that they fully understood the need to keep people informed.
I remain convinced that the reason our current elected members fail to consult on major issues is because we have allowed them too, the same way as we have allowed them to have total autonomy on major changes in Marple. But hopefully that's all going to change, because if the supermarket issue has done anything it has hopefully made elected members remember and reflect on the fact that the community put them there to serve in our best interests and to also remind them all, that they are accountable and that it's no longer a safe position to be in.
And just for the record I have not made my mind up where my cross is going, let's see their election addresses to see if they are worthy of representing Marple
