The Grass Isn't Greener, Or Safer, On The Other Side

The breaking of a promise about saving playing fields has become mired in little clear, honest response from the councillors involved.

As others have reported, saying that "the plans have changed", isn't enough and doesn't explain what's happened to a suitable degree to those residents who received a newsletter saying they were safe.

Swindon Centric Says ; For a conservative controlled council that has it's version of the ten commandments in it's '50 Promises', you can't break a promise and then not give a full explanation. You might like to throw around the '50 Promises' like flashy confetti, but a promise is a promise, whether it's written in a glossy brochure and plastered on construction hoardings (by the new Central Library) or on a single leaf of A4 that's shoved through people's letterboxes.

The people of Stratton deserve a proper explanation. They're waiting councillors...

PS We agree that behaviour of this sort deserves all the ridicule that it has received.
