Jonathan Bullock MEP - letter to the Northants press on library campaign

I would like to say well done to the campaigners who are fighting to save 21 libraries from closing.

Reports they won their battle after the High Court ruled the county council made the closure decision unlawfully.

This means, that at least, the council will have to look again at the decision.

This High Court ruling shows that local democracy and direct action by residents can have a positive effect on the communities they live in and makes our elected representatives sit and up and take note.

We lose too many community hubs and facilities - the decline in post offices and pubs are just two examples.

It is refreshing to see people take an active role in fighting for what they believe in and mobilising forces to help fight cuts.
