Mrs B Boobyer – Observer, Advertiser & Express – nice poem. It needs careful reading to catch every point.

Frank Dwyer – Express – correctly spots that the Libdems are still expecting residents to pay £3000 for alley gates etc. An early post in this very blog details this unfriendly policy.

H G Parker – Observer – Harry, Harry, Harry, most of the council offices (and officers) are in Maidenhead, so it’s obvious where the money has gone!

Michael Rowley – Observer and Express –  good letter in defence of the fire station

Peter Kingsford – Observer and Express – Fails to point out that the doorstep glass collection that has boosted the ‘weight’ of recycled goods was a Conservative plan from 2002. The Libdems plan was for a fortnightly garden waste collection which remains a request service.

Anton Cross and Judith Zachar – Express – both rightly make the point about Cllrs Fagence and Wood not turning up to the meeting that approved the humungous and ugly O2 mast on Clewer Hill Road. I happen to have a photo of it for your disapproval. I wonder if they (O2) could replace it with something just a little smaller and in keeping?

Borough Briefing by Mary Rose Gliksten – is almost valedictory in tone. Maybe their canvassing hasn’t been going quite so well as in 2003!? 🙂

That mast – it does need to be seen ‘live’ to be properly appreciated :

    There is a similarly monstrous mast in (New) Beaconsfield.
