Robert Fisher Writes
to Cllr Alan Day, Boston Borough and Lincolnshire County Council
Dear Cllr Day
LACK OF PROGRESS WITH A BYPASS FOR BOSTON
When I attended the Boston Borough Council Full Meeting on 20
December 2004, the only thing I heard you say was to stand up
and discredit a fellow Councillor, who was a Labour Councillor.
When I telephoned you on 21 December 2005, you suggested I telephone
another Labour Councillor at Lincolnshire County Council to
ask why he had accepted John Adams Way, rather than a longer
term solution for Boston.
You also blamed the previous generation of Councillors for not
doing enough for a road scheme for Boston, my father included.
I would like to ask what you have personally done to contribute
to a solution to the dire situation that Boston finds itself
in (without blaming anyone else from whatever party they may
belong to), as I personally have concerns about someone like
you saying what they are saying (blaming others) and doing nothing
Thanking you in anticipation and I look forward to hearing back

Target Article - 25 Jan 2006
Following the article that appeared in the above edition of
the Boston Target, which states that Brian Rush, Mike Borrill
and Robert Fisher have all resigned from the BBPG, we would
like to clarify that Christine Basu's claim that we resigned
for personal reasons is untrue.
Our new group has been formed to put real pressure onto Lincolnshire
County Council, as the three of us have been held back from
putting any sort of pressure on the Councils since the meeting
at West Street in September 2005.
As Brian Rush's resignation states, "We used to bang our
drum loudly ... we outed those councillors that were doing nothing
for the traffic chaos ... I do believe we must come up with
original, maybe even controversial actions that will put the
bypass firmly back on the media and the minds of people in Boston."
Robert Fisher, having spoken to Mike Borrill, his fellow Vice
Chair, replied to Brian's resignation in Christine Basu's absence
in September, stating, "Rest assured that whilst we are
"working with the Councils", this has given us the
opportunity to put pressure on them internally, which, if this
does not prove to be effective enough over the coming weeks,
will result in us banging the drum louder than ever before."
Unfortunately, we were prevented from doing so and had no alternative
but to resign ourselves and form a group that will be able to
apply real pressure as and when required.
If any other members of the public in Boston or the surrounding
area, including Skegness, feel strongly that something must
be done about Boston's dire traffic situation and would like
to join a group determined to do something about it, we would
love to hear from you. Please email [email protected]
or [email protected] if interested.

Observations of a Coach Driver
Ted Brooks states, "Lincolnshire is
the worst county that I drive in and I have lived there
all my life ... There is very little chance to overtake
safely. Even some existing wider roads are being made
single file by planting concrete kerbs and bollards
in the middle of the road. Is that safer?"
"What Lincoln wants, Lincoln gets. What Boston needs, Lincoln forgets."
