Aquatrine Respond to East Camp

After going through the office of Jane Hutt we managed to get through to Aquatrine PFI, Richard Upton, Assurance Team Manager who has responded to my letter, their full reply is to the end of this post.

A summary

The original letter contained an error in the e-mail address, the correct address to send your concerns to is DIOSDTFM-AquatrinePMO@mod.uk and they apologise for this and the length of time it has taken to resolve.

Should the scheme go ahead, EVRCL would no longer supply, bill or be any way involved in the fresh water management to East Camp. I believe this to be in the best interests of residents, however no evidence has been provided for how they believe it would positively influence house prices and conceed the debt may also reduce salability so I do not see residents having to pay for this scheme as beneficial as the original leaflet alluded.

Snooper for PM

Despite the zombie IP Bill (Snooper's Charter) being knocked back to the depths from whence it came repeatedly, Teresa May's dark magic managed to revive the bill time and time again. Sadly the lack of opposition from Labour helped facilitate this bill and now it's creator is set to be our next Prime Minister.


Her coronation to PM is a sad day for privacy advocates. While our ISPs will be keeping hordes of data on us, Teresa May will get to decide as she leads the country into paranoia and a lack of privacy what to use that data for.

Make Votes Matter - Open Letter

Thousands are now calling for equal votes in all our democratic processes. Will the Tory leaders live up to their referendum rhetoric?

David Cameron has announced that he will resign as Prime Minister by October, meaning a leader chosen by the Conservative Party will become our new PM - with the public unable to give or withold its consent.

Following the EU Referendum the most important questions still have to be answered, including decisions about trade and immigration, foreign policy and sovereignty. The 2015 General Election manifestos did not include plans for a Britain out of Europe and the people have endorsed no particular exit plan.

Today I signed this open letter from the Make Votes Matter cross-party alliance.

East Camp Private Parking

Bad news unfortunately. I wrote to EVRCL regarding the private parking situation on East Camp - specifically on Drake Close where people get blocked in or their private spaces are occupied by someone else. Much to my regret they insist there is not an issue and no one has ever said there was an issue with parking here, contrary with what residents have told and shown me.

I offered a number of solutions to EVRCL that would not cost residents, shareholders or EVRCL anything to implement but they were rejected in whole, saying it was down to the residents to sort out.

 

An Independent UK - What that means for wales

Wales has a very difficult time ahead. Naturally all EU funding possibilities for St Athan I have since abandoned or put on hold until new funding opportunities present themselves. Wales used to get more money out of the EU than it put in, even when you completely discount trade, as Wales is counted as either the first or second poorest area in the UK, depending on which measure is used, sometimes second to Cornwall.

The Welsh Government will have to negotiate hard over the formula with central government to ensure Wales continues to make this net gain in terms of payment; replacing the EU with England.

Many of our civil liberties and rights were inherited from the EU and we'll need strong Unions and people ready to fight to protect these when Parliament divorces from the EU. There is no guarantee these will be retained, even the EU laws which are enshrined in our own laws will be subject to review.
