The IW Council, by putting forward this motion, is putting its political idiology befor the interest of the people of the Isle of Wight. At a meeting of IW residents, organised by the IW TUC of IW, it was agreed that the only sensible way forward, was to subsidise or take into public ownership of Wightlink. It was the Atlee Goverment of 1945 that saved the production process of the nation, by taking into public ownership numerous industries, that otherwise would have failed. It is obvious to me that the Wightlink Ferry cares little for the Island and its residents. After making £8.5m inprofits, it only wants to make more. That is being done at the expence of Island business and residents. Take it into public ownership now.

Perhaps the Government would be more responsive if the Isle of Wight Council demonstrated their commitment to keeping our roads safe and clear by regular gritting instead of being forced to do so by public pressure.Sadly with Pugh and his merry bunch of Lemmings it is - Do as I say and not as I do.

Surely 'baby kissing' is by politicians has been outlawed in this day and age. Whatever would the Local Safeguarding and Childrens Board have to say! I'm certain that Alan Wells would object, especially if there were any photographers around. And beside all this its such a cliche and unhygenic to boot.Though to be on the safe side I might just avoid family outings to Shanklin and Cowes once the campaigning starts ;)

You can forget a fixed link for the foreseeable future. Costs would be far too high and there'll be no money for it. Like it or not it is going to be ferries. This needs sorting but how and by whom? As far as councillors and MPs are concerned though , the only mode of transport they'll be intrerested is a pre-election bandwagon.

Sorting out the ferries, gritting the roads - come on who's daft enough to believe King Pugh isn't hot on the election trail. He'll be kissing babies in Newport next. Be afraid, be very afraid..................
