The mystery pink leaflet (2): it wasn’t from me

02.04.11 | Comment?

I’ve now seen the pink leaflet I mentioned the other day, which was distributed around Nursery Avene, Pendle Drive and Greetby Hill.  It had my contact details on, and a number of residents have therefore – pretty reasonably –  assumed it came from me.

I have had expressions of concern about the leaflet, because its wording gave the impression a) that people would be able to ‘have their say’ at the Executive Overview & Scrutiny Meeting last night; b) that the substantive proposals were to be debated rather than the narrow initial questions of the inequitable consultation process.  

My own, earlier letter had made clear that what was to be debated by councillors was the process itself, and my invitation to people was worded in terms of ‘hearing the debate’ about the consultation process, not ‘having your say’ about the actual proposals. 

The misunderstanding caused by the pink flyer is unfortunate, and I am confident that whoever sent it out did so with the best of intentions, but I repeat: it did not come from me, or anyone in the Labour party.
