Labour MP enlists Con-Dem Government to save school playing field from Labour Council

I received a letter from my MP, Geraint Davies, thanking me for signing a petition against the proposed sale of a school playing field at Parkland Primary.

There's no need Geraint, to thank me for signing a petition to save the space where my youngest son plays, learns, participates in sports and evacuates to in an emergency.

Whatever representations Geraint has made to Swansea cabinet members, who are all members of the same party as him, the Labour Party, have been unsuccessful. The Cabinet still insist on referring to the playing field as "surplus land" and will recommend the proposal to sell it as part of their cuts budget on Tuesday.

Geraint's letter promised that, as a result of him raising the issue in Parliament, the Government will write to the Council to urge them to rethink. What does it say about our Labour councillors that a Labour MP is asking a Con-Dem government to step in to protect our children's playing fields from a Council of his own party?

Perhaps Geraint should join me, trade unionists and campaigners in lobbying our Labour Council to reconsider, on Tuesday, when this proposal is part of a budget of £80 million + cuts that councillors will vote on?

Ronnie Job, Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC), prospective parliamentary candidate for Swansea West.

Lobby Council, budget-setting meeting. Tuesday, 24 February, from 4pm (council meeting starts at 5pm), Civic Centre.
