    Tories and their dream world... Come on May 3rd and Bye Bye Royston!
    Why in heaven's name would you want to reverse all the good things that are finally happening in the City of Southampton after years of abject neglect?

    (A Labour council has never been any good for Southampton - they just oversee our City going down the proverbial drain! No investment, No plans, No hope!)
    I think you may need to wake up and smell the coffee!

    The tories are slowly destroying this city bit by bit. Now please dont get me wrong, I am not a labour supporter, so you wont hear praise from me. However I can say that the tories are continually making decisions in Southampton which are in THEIR interests in THEIR party's agenda for ensuring they remain in power, rather than, what councillors are elected for, looking out for the people's interest!

    Sadly with the tories its all 'me me me!'
    Sorry but do you forget the 1,000 job losses at BAT or the job losses at Martini all under a Labour council & Government?
    Millbrook Industrial site has now got new owners who are bringing in new companies.
    Capita the council were slated about them have announced job vacancies.
    modernising our city centre with the cultural centre is employing extra people ,
    the expansion of Mayflower park will employ people & ensure the Boat Show.
    Then theres plans for the train station quarter,
    A new Snowdome & they took on more permanent refuse collectors.
    Taskforce A shadow cabinet Labour councillor has resigned from the council as he wasn't happy with the lies about refuse jobs or collections as what they've actually said is no fortnightly collections or refuse job cuts this year but they never said anything about next year.
    You can't blame a local council for a National Banks decision can you?
    There is not many people that talk sense on here but you are one of them. Good points well made, again!"

More Southampton jobs at risk as Clydesdale Bank closes offices

A SOUTHAMPTON branch of Clydesdale Bank will face the axe, it has been announced today.

The Financial Solution Centre in Mountbatten House, based in Grosvenor Square, will be one of 29 across the UK closing its doors between now and September 2015.

The centre employs around 20 staff who have this morning been left fearing for their jobs.

The owner of Clydesdale and Yorkshire banks, National Australia Bank (NAB), revealed today that they are to cut more than 1,400 jobs in the UK following a strategic review which was announced in February.

The overhaul will shrink the size of its UK operation, which has 337 branches and a 8,300-strong workforce.

Cameron Clyne, NAB chief executive, said: “In the last half-year there has been a significant downgrade in the growth prospects of the UK economy, in part reflecting the drag on its recovery from heightened weakness in the eurozone.

“The action we are taking is needed to adapt to this current economic environment in the UK, and to reposition the UK banking business to improve returns for the group over the medium term.”

The company is now starting a 90-day union consultation period.
