EAST Midlands MEP Margot Parker explains her resignation as UKIP deputy chairman and why she had to quit the party on BBC Radiuo Nottingham.
I was concerned to read the city council is cutting parts of a scheme which provides disabled people with free bus travel.
The decision will mean those with disabilities will need to pay out of their own pockets to use public transport at peak times in the morning and late at night.
I am concerned this is adversely affecting equal opportunities and yet again those most in need are hit the hardest.
The council blames cuts in Government funding but those people at the sharp end do not want to hear who is to blame. They just want the service they are used to having, continuing.
I read with interest about the scheme to abolish district and borough councils in Nottinghamshire moving a significant step forward.
With recent reports of the rise in violent and knife crime it is more important than ever the Government fully supports our police officers, with funds and not just words.
