EARTH DAY – ‘Planet Southall’ – 22nd April 2015


From Jagdeesh Singh, National Liberal Party candidate for EALING SOUTHALL

Today, on behalf of SOUTHALL, I wish to convey this message of frustration, dejection and feeling of discrimination to the UK Government.

EALING SOUTHALL has been subjected to decades of physical and environmental neglect. This is ever more visibly evident in the run down streets, litter, grime and grot that has become a mainstream feature of Southall.

Despite claims of change, improvement and investment, Southall remains a neglected, unwanted, undesirable part of the London Borough of Ealing and of London as a whole.

It is no coincidence, that Southall is the hub and heartland of a mixed, diversity of communities from South Asia and beyond. This heartland of diverse communities, which is a vibrant and lively collection of peoples who have settled in the UK together with newly arrived peoples; has been treated like a dump for decades.

For all the British government’s and politicians officious rhetoric about ‘community cohesion’, Southall is a model of such interactive, cohesive life.  Yet, nowhere is Southall celebrated or recognised on the national map or national picture of the UK. Southall is plainly ignored, as a reject part of Ealing, London and the UK.

Southall has been left to clog up, be choked by pollution and become run down. This impacts both on the physical and mental well-being of the people of Southall. The natural landscape, environment and cleanliness of Southall has been left to continuously decline and deteriorate, through official neglect and ommissions.

This is an injustice to the people of Southall. Southall deserves better. Southall deserves equality and parity with the rest of the lush, clean, green Borough of Ealing. It deserves recognition in national dialogues. Southall is a positive success story of community life, community arrivals and settlement and cohesion.

Southall is a model for Britain. Southall demands change!

EARTH DAY 22nd April 2015: Planet Southall


Jagdeesh Singh to cycle to Downing Street on EARTH DAY with a message of government action and recognition for Southall - PLANET SOUTHALL!

"Southall is clogged, choked and treated like a dump."

JAGDEESH SINGH, National Liberal Party (not Liberal Democrats) candidate for EALING SOUTHALL, will mark Earth Day (22nd April 2015) tomorrow in Southall with 'PLANET SOUTHALL' and cycle to Downing Street with a powerful message of change and recognition for Southall.

Jagdeesh a passionate activist for nature and the earth, is calling for a cleaner, greener, healthier Southall.

He will focus on three actions by Southall's residents: 1. GO VEGGIE, 2. CYCLE instead of drive, 3. RECYCLE & RE-USE instead of rubbish. Jagdeesh says all of these are positive things that we as people and a society can do, to help nature, the planet and climate change.

He says with the right attitude and key changes, we can  make Southall a positive model of earth friendly living - 'PLANET SOUTHALL'. 

Jagdeesh Singh says going veggie, cycling and recycling are powerful healthy positives. "Currently, we have continuing poisonous car pollution, mammoth waste, meat madness which involves hundreds times more water waste than ordinary plant food and more greenhouse emissions than aeroplanes and 4x4s."

Jagdeesh Singh says: "We can make a change individually and collectively, or bear the consequences of our selfish inaction and persistence with anti-earth lifestyles." He says Southall is choked everyday by chaotic, mass traffic. The streets of Southall are profusely grimy, grotty and litter ridden. Southall is abandoned as an undesirable, unwanted part of Ealing Borough, with abject neglect and disregard by officialdom.

The message from local and central government is clear. Whilst the mix of Southall's communities is a uniquely wonderful example of social cohesion, the quality of life in Southall is greatly undermined through official neglect. Litter, grime, urban decay, drugs, pollution blight Southall. "Southall is clogged, choked and treated like a dump."

Southall has continued to deteriorate over decades under the double-neglect of a Labour council and a Labour MP. Tommorrow, on Earth Day, Jagdeesh Singh will cycle to Downing Street.

Leaving at 10am from Southall-Hayes bridge next to the TA centre (Uxbridge Road), Jagdeesh Singh will deliver a message to Downing Street that Southall deserves radical change and recognition and positive action. In response to Margaret Thatcher's dismissive comments about 'Sikhs raising their own flag in Southall', Jagdeesh Singh will be symbolically taking flags of different communities with him to Downing Street.

Persons wishing to support this, can meet at Southall-Hayes Bridge tomorrow at 10am for a send off.
