Compassion is only for animals
Dear Sir, — On 26th July I attended a Cheshire East Council meeting as a member of the public to raise issues around lack of bus provision and difficult disabled access to buses in the Alsager area.
I wasn’t optimistic about the outcome, not because of I thought Cheshire East wouldn’t look at the points I was going to raise but because on that morning the Animal Welfare Party had uploaded a video where Coun Jane Smith (of Alsager Town Council and deputy leader of the Animal Welfare Party) made it clear that her party was going to “take over public participation” and stop anyone else talking.
This video has since been deleted.
