I keep seeing letters about how glad people are that Asda has been stopped and that we do not need a new supermarket in Solihull, but while they have been doing this no one has noticed that a supermarket is coming through the back door.
Congratulations on an excellent April Fool front page story last week - Kicked Out and Angry (Solihull News) - revealing that West Midlands Police is forcing officers with over 30 years experience to take retirement as part of cost cutting measures.
A big thank you to Caroline Spelman, Nikki Sinclaire and other elected representatives for their presence at the national conference recently held in Meriden, with representatives from many parts of the country, who are totally frustrated with the ability of landowners to develop large scale development without planning consent and with total disregard to the community and ecology.
AFTER making my morning coffee and setting about another day of relaxing - being thankful I am a teacher and thus deserve to enjoy my time away from the job of shaping this country’s youth - I was disgusted, but not surprised to read yet another story of an innocent young man attacked by ‘knife monsters’ (Solihull News).
