Kingston Council – Inadequate Services at the Highest Cost

Did you know the following about our Lib-Dem controlled Council?
HIGHEST COUNCIL TAX in London, 4th highest out of 326 councils in England, but with
FAILED SERVICES – TWO damning OFSTED reports in 2012 and 2013 judging Children’s Services “INADEQUATE”.

RBK COUNCIL DEBT has increased 55% in just two years from £322million to £492million – £7,600 for every household! FACT

PENSIONS CRISIS – RBK Council owes £254million to the pension fund, although its net annual income is only £123million!!! FACT

HOW DID IT EVER COME TO THIS? AND HOW COME YOU DIDN’T KNOW?

ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS – under the 10-year leadership of disgraced Lib-Dem Council Leader Derek Osborne, the committee overseeing the Council’s Child Services failed to recognise the long- standing problems that OFSTED quickly found TWICE!

TOOTHLESS COUNCILLORS – for 10 years arrogant Lib-Dems and weak Tories have allowed the RBK Council Administration to control them, the elected councillors. The tail is wagging the dog THE SOLUTION IS TO HAVE A THIRD PARTY BREAK THE STALEMATE TO CHALLENGE AND SCRUTINISE THE RBK ADMINISTRATION.

ONLY YOU CAN PUT AN END TO THIS FARCE BY VOTING UKIP IN MAY’S ELECTIONS – GET A STRONG INDEPENDENT VOICE IN THE COUNCIL.

Do you want change? Do you want a more transparent and accountable council administration?
VOTE UKIP

Do you look at the leaders of Lib/Lab/Con and find you have nothing in common with them? That they are remote and don’t understand what you are going through? Do you feel like they never tell you the truth? That they spout political correctness whilst avoiding honest, direct answers? That they belittle your opinions and make you afraid to speak out? Do you want common sense people representing you?

Tolworth Girls School

Please help by supporting our petition against the proposed redevelopment of school land into 150 flats and houses. This development is out of character with the area – being composed of three and four storey blocks of flats with most of the surrounding houses being two storey semi-detatched and terraced houses. In addition, the increase in traffic will put further pressure on the local infrastructure such as Fullers Way North which is already busy, especially during the mornings and evenings when children are being dropped off / picked up.

The initial plans for the development can be found on the schools website here.

Our e-petition to the local council can be found here.

UPDATE: Evidential documents have now been collected and submitted to the Secretary of State in the hopes that this updated information will modify the planning decision, we await a reply.
