Whilst involved in South Norwood Tourist Board I have had to mix with a lot of local councillors, MP’s etc in order to get them to actually give a fuck about the area we live in. The Tories hated South Norwood, evidenced by the availability of funds for other areas apart from ours.
Now Labour have got in they have one aim – to remain in power; so when a hard working, dedicated, community councillor, who isn’t in it for the politics but the pure belief that she can make a difference, only to be thwarted by the party she has given her time for. Tony Benn’s daughter has walked straight into being a candidate for South Croydon (investment banker), Steve Reed took over Croydon North – jobs for the boys I hear you ask?
I have worked closely with Jane over the last two months and found we have a lot in common politically – a belief in social responsibility, community, fairness and is anti corporation and greed. It’s rare to meet a politician with principles but if more politicians were like Jane Avis I’m certain our area would be a nicer place.
SHAME ON YOU LABOUR FOR TURNING YOUR BACK ON SUCH GREATNESS.
