Here are the letters from the latest edition of the Fenland Citizen…
Our hospital must be replaced before 2030
It was nice to see that our local MP, Steve Barclay, acknowledged that the existing hospital building is no longer fit for purpose and has been for many years.
While I welcomed his commitment to have the entire hospital replaced by 2030, certainly considering that the hospital has been in a known state of disrepair for many years, it should be included in the 40 new government hospital. build in this parliament.
As a local MP, this will surely be seen as an improvement to Fenland and to his constituents.
Tragic but still insufficient pain
The tragic story on page 2 of last week’s Fenland Citizen once again emphasizes that you should NEVER drive any vehicle, whether motorized, pedal operated or machine while under the influence of alcohol, because you are very likely to hurt or kill yourself, or another innocent life or lives.
The young man who accidentally punched and killed his own brother, by his own admission, had had a few beers and claimed he was the most sober of the trio who had gone out for a drink, but after going out to find his brother in a van, he hit him. Tragically, the brother passed away.
The driver was lucky not to hit a family in another car, but he will still have to live with the consequences of his actions for the rest of his life.
A horrible burden to bear, I know, and I mean no offense, but a two-year prison sentence suspended for 21 months is absolutely no deterrent to others.
Drunk driving should always lead to an immediate custodial sentence, but in this case the driver will still be sentenced to life because of grief, guilt and the “what if I hadn’t” in his head as long as he lives.
Rishi is already a done deal
Rishi Sunak endorsed quantitative easing despite statisticians telling him not to print money after the pandemic. That is why we deliberately provoked this financial crisis. Although the Bank of England wrongly called for quantitative easing, Rishi basically had the right to refuse to allow it to happen. The index and other related income continues to generate revenue, as well as the 42% fuel tax.
Despite this Muppet Show gesture of a leadership election to make us think democracy works, voting is not open to the public.
I am of the opinion that Rishi has already been chosen by the Conservative Party as the next Prime Minister to fix his own mistakes. It’s already done.
We’re being followed with this gobbledygook
I recently wrote to the Citizen about the gender identity belief system promoted by activist teachers and some Ofsted school inspectors.
I didn’t just want to be an armchair warrior, so I decided to also write to Ofsted with MP Stephen Barclay in copy.
Ofsted’s response was: ‘Please confirm where you got this information from’.
I replied with a link to the information. This was swept away by the response that it is not their mandate. Stephen Barclay’s admin got back to me almost immediately with an innocuous 250-word response prepared in advance.
I replied, “If nothing else, a group should be created with a very broad mandate to investigate sexual and moral perversion which I believe is allowed to be taught, if not promoted, in schools.”
“Anyway, there is nothing small people like me can do, but my conscience is clear on this matter, unlike those of the police, councilors and social workers in Rochdale, Telford, etc., which have allowed evil to prosper.
“I don’t condone this similar evil and I hope you won’t either.” No other response came.
MP Miriam Cates spoke in a televised debate and said ‘new sex education guidelines open the door to inappropriate and extreme content being taught in schools’.
Here’s a taste of what’s being taught (by the way, these guidelines are what Stephen Barclay suggests in his answer to Me are Child Protection).
One lesson states that “rough sex is quite common (and) most of the time it’s probably consensual.”
And elsewhere, children are told that love (and therefore sex) is ageless – what does this mean for the age of consent? Some of what she wanted to repeat from the lessons could not be said because the debate was televised. OK for small children to hear but not for adult audiences.
We follow the same terrible path that schools follow in the United States. Christopher F Rufo reported, “The Los Angeles Unified School District is embracing radical trans affirmation programming and working to ‘break the gender binary…. it actively celebrates sexual identities such as pansexual, sexually fluid, queer, homosexual and asexual, and gender identities such as transgender, genderqueer, agender, bigender, gender nonconforming, gender expansive, gender fluid and two-spirited, and that the he idea behind it all is that white, cisgender, heterosexual men have built a repressive social structure, dividing the world into the false binomial of man and woman.
All unscientific gibberish, but that and more is pushed to your children.
