I can’t believe this is still ‘awaiting moderation’, over six months later…

I’ll say it again…

Frankly, unless you have had anyone injured as a result of the absence of a crossing, you are in exactly the same position as us, with High Street. Highways won’t shell out for a crossing without good reason, and that was passed down to us from our own Labour county councillor. Our new Conservative city councillor has long campaigned for the crossing, but I suspect his hands will be tied in the long run…

 

I can’t recall now whether I said ‘I’ll say it again’ because I posted it to this blog entry before, and it was moderated and rejected, or because I said it in reply to the same subject on some other Labour blog, perhaps Kate Haigh’s.

Something similar has happened with Play Gloucestershire’s blog. For the ‘February Half-term’ entry, I wrote a week ago that Malcolm Dunn of the city council had not informed me of their half-term events, nor had they been advertised in the local press, but that next time, it would be nice if they would do something in St. James’ Park. That disappeared, as did my following remark on their willingness to engage with the public. My last attempt (‘Play Gloucestershire is really amazing :)’) still doesn’t seem to pass muster, after four days now.

When you add the inability of the Barton & Tredworth Heritage Community Heritage staff to manage their website, as well as GAVCA’s unwillingness to promote their voluntary sector forum by participating in discussions, it shows a pretty poor effort all round in engaging with internet users.

Update: ‘Even ‘Play Gloucestershire is really amazing!’ doesn’t pass muster, and has been moderated away. Can anyone get a comment approved? These guys aren’t exactly a bundle of fun…
