  1. Which cllr gave planning permission?

    Why did they not put any restrictions on the construction of the plant and caveat for local labour?

    This has allowed abuse and exploitation of foreign agency who are paid well below the rate?

    What conditions and cost of board for these agency workers?

    Did they get an inducement or kickback for allowing?

  2. Yet again.
    No MPs or Cllrs were on the picket line at this or the junior doctors protest. It was noticed!

    Is morning time to early for them?
    Working people have votes to cast.

    Says a lot on cllrs so called campaigning that amounts to a scrap of paper shoved thro doors. Wow
