Among comments made to different Conservatives visiting the consultation were:


Latest scrutiny panel meeting highlights worrying data on prospects of looked after children

The latest Children and Young Peoples Scrutiny Panel has highlighted worrying data on the prospects for looked after children in Greenwich.  The meeting focused on Greenwich Council's performance in meeting certain local and national targets for educational standards, outcomes for looked after children, supporting parents, improving access to services for young people and improving behaviour. 

Making your mind up in West Greenwich

With less than a day of campaigning left for all parties it is time to make your mind up.

The figures from the last election for which ward figures are available are from the GLA Elections in 2008 show that only the Conservatives can beat Labour here to change Greenwich West.

The percentage of the vote then was as follows:

Greenwich Conservatives would put more police on the beat

Greenwich Conservatives have outlined how they would put more Police on the beat in Greenwich.

Conservative support for the armed forces

Labour’s Debt Mountain

In Labour’s March Budget, the Chancellor announced that Britain would spend more on debt interest (£43bn) than Transport (£22bn), the Police (£36bn) or Defence (£40bn) next year. As David Cameron said "the only thing Labour bring are debt, waste and taxes".

Conservatives plan a better education for our children

Conservatives in Greenwich and nationally have clear plans to support our children in doing better at school. In the 2009 league tables, Greenwich Secondary Schools have the worst results in London at 5 A* to C grades for GCSE. Also only 14.5% of Greenwich GCSE students achieve a ‘traditional’ education of C grade or above in English, Maths, Science and a foreign language.

Labour abandons the Thames Gateway

Labour has stopped participating in the Thames Gateway organisation which worked to improve employment, transport, housing and regeneration of those areas which border the Thames (including Greenwich and Woolwich). 

Despite considering it ‘extremely successful’, the Labour run Council thinks our waterfront communities no longer need its support and funds.
