People Power/Media Power Wins the day

Many many thanks to the Manchester Evening News for their campaign to stop the cuts by the City Council to the School Crossing Patrol Service. The paper set up it's own easy to access on-line petition and showed that the weight of public opinion was very much in favour of keeping the service.
I have been contacted today by campaigners from Southwark looking for advice and support. Perhaps someone can persuade the Evening Standard to do for London what the Manchester Evening News has done for the children of Manchester. In the meantime please support the national petition by pressing the red button above.


  1. The ladies and men of Peterborough have just won their battle for their jobs today.The local council backed down on it's proposal to cut all 11 jobs to save £43,000 per year. People power won the day here. Thanks to the online petition of The Evening Telegraph.

  2. I just found your blog and wanted to let you know that I already bookmarked it in 4 different websites. Thanks for providing great content for us to read real estate in Charlotte North Carolina
