AN article regarding dog control orders (Gazette, March 15) may have suggested I would take part in a scheme asking volunteers to actively confront dog foulers. This is not so.

I believe enforcement is clearly the role of council officers, who are paid by the taxpayer to do that job.

Neither I nor my dog will therefore be chasing dog foulers around Wyre any time soon!

Discussions were held with the council about setting up a friendly scheme to encourage responsible behaviour, but no details have yet been finalised.

This is a scheme I hope I can take part in.

I feel such discussions can be useful, if they lead to a better understanding and producing a working strategy to deal with any dog issues which may cause concern, without penalising every dog owner through restrictive blanket dog control orders, which I have never supported.

Why is everyone surprised that the Tories want to close the Sure Start programme?

It, along with other programmes started at the same time, have been a huge success as statistics have shown.

We know that Blackpool council is not supporting any of these.

But then, you can’t have something that Labour started being backed by the Tories, can you – even if it is better for the community.

I presume the council is going to Homestart, so that they don’t have to have anything more to do with it.

If you choose to have children, you will have to bring them up yourself.

The days of the nanny state paying out are over, there is no money left! We can’t keep blaming banks and putting up tax.

Unfortunately, this is part of the big society.

The reality is that it’s the poor, disabled and disenfranchised who face the brunt of the cuts, because they need all the services like Sure Start, The Citizens Advice Bureau and all the other support groups out there.

Why we all pay for the global banking crisis, the mega-rich still have all the tax loopholes that they want.

We are all in this together – only some are more in it than others.
