A £30 MILLION EXHIBITION RD OR YOUR LOCAL FIRE STATION? THE CHOICES SHOULD BE YOURS

When a politician tells you Londoners' lives will not be at risk by the closure of  local fire stations you can be sure he is lying.
Boris Johnson wants to close down 17 local London fire stations. Fire Brigades Union chief, Paul Embery, describes this as the biggest threat to the service since it's heroic work firefighting during the Blitz.
We live in a topsy turvy world....one minute we are told there is no money to maintain an essential service: the next Boris and Pooter Cockell splash out close to £30 million tarting up Exhibition Rd!
We need our local fire stations: without them our lives are put at risk.
It would have come as no surprise to hear Boris claiming that closing down stations would actually enhance response times!

The fact is London building are growing ever taller and thus the need for localised and professional fire fighting services ever more critical
Make your views known to Kit Malthouse, our GLA representative and one of Boris's top team, kit.malthouse@london.gov.uk or ask your local councillor/s to get lobbying on behalf of residents.

  5. Cllr Malthouse is not known for taking any notice of residents. He made all sorts of promises in Kensington Town Hall when he was hoping to be elected. But since then, it is a different story

  6. Presumably 11.11 is anti-Labour, pro the closing of 17 fire stations and believes that all Conservative members and voters stand with him. This is the trouble with the new breed of Tory voter: they seem unable to handle complexity beyond money in/money out. It might take his house burning down for him to understand why the Fire Service exists.
