Letter: Shropshire Star (CEP member)
England gets such a raw deal
It is clear from the Shropshire Star's recent report that the Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, is determined to impose regional police forces on the citizens England regardless of public opinion.
Indeed, the Labour government appears to have reneged on its promises to hold referenda on regional assemblies. Unlike Scotland and Wales, the voters of England have been denied any say on how its affairs are to be dealt with.
For those who despair, may I point out that the English Democrats Party e%ists to promote the establishment of a national parliament for England following endorsement by voters in a referendum. In the meantime, I and other like-minded citizens will support any representations the Shropshire Star cares to make opposing the subsuming of West Mercia Police.
