No Bypass Likely Unless The Council Fights

IN reply to the letter from Malcolm Boughen, I support him all the way, but you see Mr Boughen we have councillors in Ely and it seems that all they can do is fight amongst themselves. What we need is a council who will talk to each other, stand together

IN reply to the letter from Malcolm Boughen, I support him all the way, but you see Mr Boughen we have councillors in Ely and it seems that all they can do is fight amongst themselves. What we need is a council who will talk to each other, stand together and fight for Ely on the big issues. We need to tell the Government of the day in no uncertain terms that this bypass is urgently needed and if we did not get it there would be no money to central Government until it was funded. But it seems our councillors from all the parties would rather be at logger heads with each other and get nowhere. Look at the Ely markets issue with everyone squabbling at the meeting.

It seems they would rather spend another � 250,000 on stopping Mereham, instead of kicking the Government to give us a badly needed bypass. There is an old saying in this world 'he who shouts the longest and loudest gets things done', but sorry Mr Boughen we are not going to get that bypass until we have a council that will fight together.
