Fenland Council inspired me to stand after rejecting my profit-making idea
I AM standing for election in March West after being inspired by Fenland District Council.
The Tories are going mad on cutbacks, jobs and services because we have little money. They are still striving to privatise everything else they did not the last time they were in power.
I feel we should try to make money and cut high wages first, not jobs and services. The council should be run as you would run a business - to try and make a profit, not go into debt.
A decision to not allow me to make more money for Fenland could be due to the Tory-run council, which is thinking of privatising Fenland’s gyms.
I asked to supply the gyms with protein, slimming drinks and other supplements on a sale or return basis, for just shelf space in each gym, and I would move items around to get the feel of what sells best in each area at no cost to the council.

My reply was: “We have spoken to another authority and we are not going to proceed.”
The three gyms had 700,000+ visits according to the last yearly figures. Protein is scientifically needed to repair after any workout.
- 1 Turners ‘massively impacted’ and Knowles up pay to hire HGV drivers
- 2 Hunt is on to find stags that escaped from farm
- 3 Villagers team up to honour 'a real character'
- 4 ‘Enough is enough’ says MP at the scene of drink drive crash
- 5 Mobile upgrade work may cause TV interference
- 6 MP the “most handsome and kindest member of the government’
- 7 Sex offender caught with 76 of most serious child abuse photos
- 8 ‘Tired and dated’ road can only get better with our 40 new homes, say builders
- 9 Jail for paedophile who booked hotel to abuse three children
- 10 ‘High risk’ paedophile had indecent images of children on his phone
If the gyms sold a protein drink per visit for just �1 they could potentially make about �200,000 profit from just that one item, which is money that would be put back into Fenland.
I am sure I can make money from other avenues in the council, as the potential for the gyms has clearly not been met and has no intention of being met.
