The Right To Silence By Nigel Ward

whitby west pier closedEverybody in Whitby – and many more all around the world – is acutely aware at present that our Harbour, Piers, Pier Extensions, Footbridges and Lighthouses are in a desperate state of dilapidation brought about by many, many years of total negligence.

The focus of this concern has been the closure of the Footbridge linking the West Pier to the West Pier Extension.

Real Whitby, the Whitby Gazette and the FaceBook Group “Save Whitby’s Piers!!” have raised a platform for public expression.

The West Pier falls within the Whitby Town Council Ward of Town North.

Why have we heard nothing from that Ward’s (co-opted) representatives?

Councillor Joyce Stangoe
Councillor Philip Trumper

The West Pier falls within the Scarborough Borough Council Ward of Streonshalh.

Why have we heard nothing from that Ward’s elected representatives?

Councillor Dorothy Clegg
Councillor Sandra Turner

The West Pier falls within the NorthYorkshire County Council Ward of West Cliff. Why have we heard nothing from that Ward’s elected representatives?

Councillor Alf Abbott
Councillor Joe Plant

The West Pier falls within the parliamentary constituency of Scarborough & Whitby?

We have we heard nothing from our Member of Parliament?

Mr Robert Goodwill MP

Is it because they are neither use nor ornament?

    Interesting points Nigel.

    Isn’t it the Government that once claimed:

    “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear”???

    The privacy of ordinary men and women is invaded without consent, our lives are examined by Governments all over the world, yet when we shine the light upon these people, they scurry off and hide like rats. Why?

    Perhaps one of them might be brave enough to answer the question – “Why?”
