You resent us but fail to criticise national Olympic vanity project

Have your say

Mr P Speight, who, as far as I know, has never been a conspicuous contributor to community life in Surfleet, appears to resent the achievements at Glen Park – which cost him nothing as a taxpayer.

Yet he remains silent about a three-week political vanity project which has drained £20bn out of the country’s economy and robbed grass roots sport of vital funds.

His letter of April 19 employs a little elephantine humour by suggesting that Sparc should follow local farmers’ example by supplying portabe toilets at the park.

There’s one critical difference. Sparc doesn’t receive a fat subsidy cheque from the European Union every month to pay for them.
