WE need your help to improve Shirley and Freemantle.

That is the rallying call from community leaders in Southampton as a new government pilot scheme is launched in the city today.

The Shirley and Freemantle Network is part of a wider £4m Government plan called the ‘Our Place programme’.

It calls on communities to get together to take the lead on tackling issues by bringing agencies and people to share resources in the area.

Heavily involved in the scheme is Cabinet Member for communities and Shirley councillor Satvir Kaur.

She said: “This is an opportunity for people in Shirley and Freemantle to get involved in their area and help make the changes and improvements they want to see “This is the first scheme of its kind in Southampton and gives people an opportunity to set the agenda.”

Dorota Goble is improvement manager for Southampton City Council, and she will initially be managing the network.

She said: “We are really hoping the Freemantle and Shirley network will be something led by the community groups, businesses and residents in the area.

“We want them to have their say on what Shirley and Freemantle needs and the future of it.”

Across the country more than 100 neighbourhood projects are part of the scheme which is in partnership with the Local Government Association.

With the Our Place programme, each community will get more powers to get involved in their area by having community rights which are contained within the localism act These include the right to bid, build, challenge and set up a vision for the area – and apply for grants.

Find out more at the launch night at the Salvation Army Hall in Victor Street tonight from 6.30pm to 9pm. To book email admin@twics.org.uk or call 023 8067 1111

That,s because Labour no longer as that connection to the people on the street any more, they kick out all the Left from the party and it was the Left that kept the Right wing informed what was going on, what is being ask of them, and what the people really wanted, the Left done all the work and the right took all the praises, and now they need to ask.

Southy has made a fairly reasonable assessment of the situation.

'Fairly reasonable' because most but not all of the so called 'lefties' when they were in the Party were youngish they were full of energy and enthusiasm, so used to make efforts for going out on the streets to connect with ordinary people. But they were not the only ones.

So in all fairness it must be said that even plenty of old hands who were supposed to be on our right also did the same.

For example people like Jack Candy, who eventually left Labour and kept on serving our city in his own ways, and that too without claiming any financial rewards and Late Mary Key who was councillor for Woolston, whom left used to criticise all the time because she was very fair and independent minded out spoken person was exceptionally good at staying in touch with people.

Problems started when former Tories like John Truscott and many Liberals plus their mates on huge big ego trips started joining the old Labour Party, and with the help of many so called lefties from various Trotskyists and some former Stalinst Communists stitched up many hard working Labour people whether they were so called Centerist Lefties or Rightwingers. So hands of many on the left are not exactly clean.

Deliberately or unwittingly if not all some or many lefties helped serving slobs in successfully hijackcking the Labour Party and turn it into NuLabour which is now virtually full of arrogant mob who are specialist in patronising us the ordinary people and live in their own fools paradise.

Introduction of fairly good salaries and allowances has also attracted plenty of self centered parasites of politics. Their main aims appear to be sucking the blood out of our institutions like local councils and parliament etc. And they fool us the people with artificial sound bites, fake consultations and spinning news. Serving the public in most cases is not the aim left anymore.

Change the road signs to Polish that will help the residents get around better maybe drive on the right, dont think there is that many Brits left in there anyway.
Or build a massive wall round it with gates and police it properly if they want to come out. They have to prove prove they should be here and what are they doing to improve our country.

So many negative vibes in this place. The Government is making £4.3 million available to about 100 neighbourhoods in England where local communities can get more involved in running local services. I'm quite pleased that Southampton has pitched in for some of this and that the Council has chosen Shirley Road as an area to focus on.

My work in the capital has shown how a little money can go quite a long way in helping to turn round local neighbourhoods. This particular government programme currently supports neighbourhood schemes in the White City (Hammersmith & Fulham), Queens Park (Westminster) and Norbiton (Kingston upon Thames).

I think Southampton can learn quite a lot from places like this where the key ingredients for success seem to be (1) local politicians are prepared to work together for the common good regardless of their affiliations (2) community activists are able to come together to take the lead on certain projects and (3) public sector bodies (council, NHS, police, schools etc.) are willing to let go of some of the purse strings and powers to let local people have a bigger say on how they want their money to be spent.

So a coalition Government is making money available? Tory & Lib/dem?
So why is a failed Government /MP candidate from Labour splattered on the page? Surely this has nothing to do with her so what's she doing?

It's got everything to do with her - she is 1) a Shirley councillor and 2) cabinet member for communities. But no, you choose to highlight the fact that she stood as parliamentary candidate and lost, a contest you are utterly obsessed with.

Loosehead, you're a nasty, miserable, sad, angry little man. I pity you. Your world is full of negativity, you can't ever see anyone else's point of view, and I've never, ever seen you make a genuinely constructive comment. I'd hate to be in your skin. The best thing you could do, for your own benefit as well as everyone else's, is to stay off these boards.

When the Sulphur plant was announced it was only Jeremy Moulton that took the flak so are you now saying Kaur must have known about it?
After all this money is for Freemantle isn't it?
She's a councillor for Shirley isn't she?

Stay off these boards? So a Socialist doesn't want anyone who shows the inadequacies of Labour to speak out about it?
Or are you saying only people who praise Labours policies are allowed to post on this website?

She is not a failed Government/MP Candidate Loose, Labour Councillor Satvir Kaur was the one who beat the Shirley Tory councillor in local elections at her first attempt.
And what this area as got to do with her Satvir Kaur is there councillor for the Shirley ward
She was on the women only short list where the local Labour Party thought none of the local councillors were good enough & a Peckham councillor was shipped in so she failed to be the prospective Mp candidate.
Loose she was added to the list to make up the numbers thats all, to make it look fair, She never had a chance in the first place it was all ready decided who would take over from JD in London not local

It's got everything to do with her - she is 1) a Shirley councillor and 2) cabinet member for communities. But no, you choose to highlight the fact that she stood as parliamentary candidate and lost, a contest you are utterly obsessed with.

Loosehead, you're a nasty, miserable, sad, angry little man. I pity you. Your world is full of negativity, you can't ever see anyone else's point of view, and I've never, ever seen you make a genuinely constructive comment. I'd hate to be in your skin. The best thing you could do, for your own benefit as well as everyone else's, is to stay off these boards.
Stay off these boards? So a Socialist doesn't want anyone who shows the inadequacies of Labour to speak out about it?
Or are you saying only people who praise Labours policies are allowed to post on this website?
No. I'm saying that you, Loosehead, get worked up into an angry frenzy about anything you discuss - it just can't be good for your health. You seem to be consumed with anger, negativity, and spite. You lash out at everyone who disagrees with you. Maybe you wouldn't do face to face, I don't know. But on these boards, you come across as being a very conflicted and probably very sad person.

When the Sulphur plant was announced it was only Jeremy Moulton that took the flak so are you now saying Kaur must have known about it?
After all this money is for Freemantle isn't it?
She's a councillor for Shirley isn't she?
You are completely deluded. When planning permission for the Sulphur plant was first applied for the three Freemantle Councillors (Moulton, Parnell and Ball) were notified. None of them chose to challenge the application and - as there were no planning reasons for objecting - it was therefore nodded through by the Council's planning officials.

When a revised application was submitted 18 months later it was Jeremy Moulton who ran to the press with a scare story attacking the then leader Richard Williams for allowing the plant to proceed. Despite being on the Port Consultative Committee when the application was first submitted Moulton denied knowing anything about it. Royston Smith was more candid when he claimed that there was something in the 'back of his mind' about the application.

Quite what all this has to do with Satvir Kaur is completely beyond me.

do you think that like your Labour friends on here I'd be afraid to air my views face to face?
I have posted my name on various posts unlike Labour supporters & I'd quite happily tell you what I think if I ever met you face to face.
In the past if I was wrong I've put my hands up & if I owe an apology I have made one but Labour supporters just can't see when they're wrong.
