MP David Amess has admitted he is against the closure of libraries in Southend. I think many of us totally support this view, but seriously ask what on earth he is going to do about it when his Conservative allies on Southend Council are hell bent on pushing ahead with these closures? The answer to this question is absolutely nothing, as Amess and James Duddridge are not interested in Southend, but only concerned in keeping their Parliamentary seats. In fact, the policies they have supported and pushed through this Parliament have inflicted untold damage on both our community in Southend as well as across the country. I only hope the residents of Southend realise this and will pay them both back at the next election.

I now have four blue bins – two delivered recently to add to those issued a few years back. When I inquired what to do with the old ones (which are still perfectly usable) I was told to retain them as spares.

I think our letter writers are being a little unkind to Tory MP David Amess for his take on the other towns vying for some curious honour or other for being the most cultural centre in the UK. Them versus Southend-on-Sea.
