Comments on this pledge

  • I support the march and we can only save public services if we pull together
  • The Barnetmarch pledge is a tool to build the march against cuts and privatisation in the London Borough of Barnet. The march is on Sunday 30 January 2011, assemble 11.30am at Finchley Central tube station, march to the Arts Depot in north Finchley for a rally from 1pm. More details available here: http://barnetalliance.org/2010/01/02/bar...

    We thought this was a good tool because Barnet council has set up its own PledgeBank - the difference from the original being that Barnet council vets the pledges sent to it.

    For the Conservative administration in Barnet, the purpose of their PledgeBank is to promote the Big Society idea. The problem is, they are proposing to residents that they do tasks which properly should be (and are better) done by the council. They say: "Barnet Pledgebank can be used to gather together people to get projects done. These can be tasks such as clearing snow and ice from pavements in the street, painting over graffiti or setting up computer classes in your area."
  • It should be remembered that the architect of easyBarnet seems to be Mike Freer who orchestrated the cuts in Barnet while he was still on the council - yet people voted for him!
    He left the sinking ship to the attack-dog Mr C. and his mates to finish it off.

    Mr Freer was seen outside Iceland East Finchley recently - he won't get our money back that way.

  • I have been a resident of the London Borough, nearly, all of my life and I have never seen such huge attacks on local public services on this scale, before. Undoubtedly, I was motivated to relaunch Barnet Trades Union Council in 2008. But really, all local residents must unite against this unrepresentative council that was elected on a minority vote.

  • I have put in an FOI request to see all the pledges put into barnet pledgebank - whether published or not. Should be fun!

  • Hello, Richard, have you received a reply yet regarding the FOI?

    Best wishes,
    Vicki
