Angela McConville and her team were very wise to run scared of last night's Westway meeting at the Tabernacle. In a truly shocking display of peaceful debate, over 300 members of the public listened quietly to the history of Westway and the Trust. This provoked a terrifying barrage of thoughtful questions to the panel. An expert informed a stunned audience that the air quality near the Westway is lethal. The levels of poison are 2.5 times the maximum permitted by the EU; enough to kill everyone in the room within 5 years, from lung disease or cancer. Local babies are born with smaller lungs than normal and face a lifetime of ill health. Even playing sport beneath the roadway damages participants' health. Despite this, no weapons of war were produced. Further lively debate followed. A vote of no confidence was unanimously passed on the travesty of the Trust's public consultations. Yet everyone remained ruthlessly seated. Another equally unanimous vote of no confidence was passed on the Trust's directors and trustees. The room was alive with silent battle cries. The attendees collected the small children playing on the floor and fled home in terror, after a nice little drink and chat in the lobby. McConville's lack of courage was fully justified. The evening was ghastly. The Westway kills local residents."
