Newsflash from Merton CIL! 

 

 

Did you know Merton Council London Borough of Merton is asking residents about council tax and council spending. But are they giving residents the full story?

 

There is doubt this is a fair consultation and that it doesn't provide the full facts or the impact of not increasing the council tax. This video attempts to re-balance the bias information put out on the consultation. Apologise for the lack of subtitles at this time.

No Go Britain: disabled public transport access - Channel 4 News 

 

Starring: Gina Vettese (Vice Chair of Merton CIL) 

Ask any disabled person about public transport and you're virtually guaranteed to hear a horror story. Whether it's taxis charging disabled passengers higher fares, people trapped on trains, or just plain old inaccessible stations. Throughout 2012 this programme revealed the trouble of simply getting around when you're disabled.
