Race across water or sit and snooze
By Stephan Platt
GREAT to see Nick Gillingham and Duncan Goodhew have spoken out about the baths closure, and I'm happy the Chronicle, Express and Star and Stourbridge News have all mucked in the campaign to save the baths. But where were YOU when the baths actually closed on December 31 2005? I was IN the baths, swimming, protesting IN the pool, not talking, but swimming.
Communicating a message, but unfortunately nobody seemed interested in my protest.
I had the plug pulled on ME, as I swam, and a British Steel fence erected around me, leaving me caged in like a shark. The police were called, and I still continued swimming. Such is my passion for the baths I was willing to risk jail!
I challenge any MP, ex-Olympic athlete or Snoozepaper to a race across the Waterfront in Merry Hill and into the offices of Westfield. And I challenge you to publish this letter.
This is just the tip of the iceberg and an example of the kind of newspeak I have come to expect in Dudley Metro Parish. How long can we sit around and snooze while politicians and church councils dictate our futures?
Put your trunks on, grab some goggles and I'll meet you waterside!
