Islington residents vote YES
Residents in Islington on the electoral register took part in a REFERENDUM to decide if higher parking charges be applied for gas guzzling cars. I ticked the YES box and returned it thinking that the response would be low.
Remarkably 56% of a total of 36,792 residents sent in their votes - a response rate of 28.8 per cent. Seems many Islington residents are REALLY concerned about Green issues. Full details HERE & more facts HERE.
By calling a local referendum Islington Council made historic ground. It's the country's first local authority ballot of every resident on the electoral roll - more than 127,500 people. Have to say it before the moaning minnies start, the results says it all and fully justifies the expense. Nice One Islington.
