In last week’s edition of the Harrow Times, Jeremy Zeid, writing on behalf of UKIP, beguiles us with fantasy tales of parrots like a wide-boy’s spiel disarming his clients’ caution (‘Four years of ‘Polly-tics’, Your Views, August 21).

Councillor Barry Macleod-Cullinane completely failed to address the points raised in my letter (‘Local services being destroyed’, Your Views, August 14) apart from acknowledging that Government grants have been cut (‘Taxpayers face the third highest bills in London’, Your Views, August 21). He then does the classic political trick of trying to fudge the issue.

Councillor Barry Kendler writes that during the election voters told him “they want the highways repaired, the streets cleaned, the parks maintained and rogue private sector landlords dealt with”. If these are voters’ priorities, why has Labour announced plans to cut street cleaning?

Regarding MP Bob Blackman’s visit to Israel, I can assure you he tells it as it is, there are constant rockets leaving Gaza heading for cities in Israel and if it wasn’t for the ‘iron dome’ defence system there would be thousands of people killed and maimed in those cities.

It beggars belief that anyone could try to reinstate a position on Harrow Borough Council where there is no responsibility, and at the astronomical salary of £183,097 a year — more than the Prime Minister.

Your correspondent noted the disproportionate loss of life in Gaza and Israel, but omitted to note that as no Hamas operative wears a uniform, nearly all losses of life are reported to be civilian deaths.

Until I sold my home in Stanmore in March I was a constituent of Bob Blackman MP. Currently I’m living in my holiday home in Tel Aviv where I have been subjected to a daily bombardment of rockets from Gaza.

As a lifelong resident of Pinner, a member of the Pinner Local History Society and one who often walks or cycles through Pinner Park Farm, I protest most strongly about Harrow Borough Council’s proposal to evict the farmer and convert the farm into a country park and residential accommodation.

At last week’s Harrow Borough Council meeting, I asked Councillor Keith Ferry, Labour’s portfolio holder for planning and development, if he would consider all the evidence on the impact of the Anmer Lodge development, including the views of local residents, before he gives final approval to the plans.

Regarding the proposed changes to council tax benefit which featured in your paper last week, (“Tax benefit consultation’, Harrow Times, July 3), it’s worth pointing out that Harrow Borough Council’s Labour administration could fund this benefit if it wanted to.

Moving the Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) to a better accommodation and conducive learning atmosphere at the former Bentley Day Centre makes good sense considering that the PRU is not just a caring place but an educational establishment with a deliberate attempt to create the environments where disaffected pupils can be kept safe and healthy and learn through an alignment of service provision and support services.
