Subject: Response to Peter Jackson


 

Sir

It is nice to see that Peter Jacksons now famous skill for forgetfulness hasn't left him (Letters Page, Newcastle Journal 13th Nov. 2012).


 

His forgetful nature of course became public when he was unable to remember his several applications to erect wind turbines on his farm.


 

This time when scribbling away to get his letter off, ranting about how Northumberland Tories wish to help children, he forgot to inform your readers that his motion closed the door for this and any future Council to look at the funding of schools and assist them appropriately.


 

He also forgot to mention, whilst castigating Ashington's proposed £20M new build leisure centre, attempting yet again to set rural against urban, to mention that the people of the former Wansbeck District transferred £26M plus the £6M sale of Portland Park and £44M worth of assets from Wansbeck Life into the new authority in addition to their Council assets, while Castle Morpeth under Peter's leadership forgot about it.
