I note that in the letter from Wiltshire Council asking for opinions on which rubbish collection service should be suspended during the winter, there is great play made of the “free service” which we now enjoy. I would like to sign up for this “free” service. The last time I looked I was paying Wiltshire Council a great deal of money every year to pay for, among other things, rubbish collection. Does Wiltshire Council hold us in such contempt that it believes us incapable of seeing though such a blatant misrepresentation of the truth? − Pat Ladd, HoltWhere will waste go?
On the radio and in her column, Claire Perry, says that “turn up and travel” is responsible for overcrowding on trains. She wants us to book in advance. My brother was a railwayman nearly all his working life. He warned that privatisation would be a disaster, mainly because of the sheer stupidity of splitting the track responsibility from the train operator. The overcrowding is because those same operators only lease the trains, most of which are owned by foreign banks or bankers and the fewer trains you have to pay for, the bigger the profit for shareholders. There is no competition between companies, the only alternative to the dreadful First Great Western I’ve seen go through Chippenham are cement wagons. − Hazel Milburne, CalneCrystal ball please
