CHAIRMAN DAVID MC VICAR and NIGEL YOUNG CONSERVATIVE DUNSTABLE

Honest people do 3 things

Refuse to make misleading statements
Do not withhold important information
Communicate facts truthfully

The definition of Sham is to falsely present as the truth” i.e. fake, pretense, fraud

There is no better example of a SHAM than what Conservative politicians are doing to the green belt through their local Councillors.

England’s green belt covers over 6,000 square miles of countryside, which is wrapped around towns and cities to prevent urban sprawl.

On October 12th last year Communities Secretary Eric Pickles pledged

“The green belt will be protected, and the Conservatives will do all they can to preserve the character of the countryside”,Mr Pickles made clear that ministers will not allow weakening in green belt protections.

Protecting the character of the countryside is stamped deep into the heart of Conservatism."

“And let me tell you – the green belt plays a vital role in stopping urban sprawl and we will protect it.”

Based on the actions of Conservative counsellors that control local government this was a lie.

There are examples occurring all over the country where unscrupulous Conservative local councillors are betraying the communities that they are meant to protect.

A good example of this Sham is what the local Conservative Government is doing to the residents of Barton Le Clay by changing a green belt area to accommodate Travellers sites.

The 8000 residents of Barton Le Clay want to ask David Mc Vicar Conservative Councillor from Dunstable and the other 20 Conservative Councillors responsible for trashing their green belt.

Why? What did we do to you that would cause you to try and ruin our quality of life?

Are some of you on the payroll of those wishing to change our precious country side?

Does the fact that you all live an average of 12 miles from Barton

have anything to do with it?

Each of you would have to drive on average over 25 minutes, with many of living up to 18 miles from Barton, so it doesn’t affect you personally, does it?

Is it in some way to punish us for not being represented by a Conservative Councillor? 95% of the sites selected were not areas even close to where you all live.

Barton Le Clay residents are looking for answers.
