Ever thought you were represented by an MP?

Think again.

We received this recent exchange;

Letter to Don Foster – Member of Parliament for Bath (though not, i believe Bathampton)

Hello Don something odd is going on in Bathampton.

Apart from a boat being torched and boat people’s tyres slashed it seems the parish council don’t feel the boaters children worthy of attending Bathampton Primary school .

here are the minutes of one Bathampton parish council meeting obtained under the FOI act. The question was asked by one of the members.

and this is the ‘reply’ he received

haven’t had anyone from a non-continuously cruising boat contact me about this issue. If you know anyone with a problem, please ask them to contact me directly and I will certainly take up the issue. ;

So the so-called representative of the people has decided he knows what a ‘continuously cruising boat’ is, and by implication that they don’t get representation.

If you are one of the boaters that, by implication, Don Foster has spoken to and decided he cannot help we would be interested to hear your experiences.
