On Thursday June 26 there was a possibility that Communities Minister Caroline Flint might visit Elsenham to inspect the

site she has chosen for an eco-town.

Sadly the Minister didn't make it to Elsenham...but guess who did? Uttlesford Tory Councillors Susan Barker and Jackie Cheetham!

They have done little or nothing to help us fight the eco-town (well, it's too embarrassing for them while they still want to dump their own mega-estate on us), but they are happy to show up here in Elsenham as 'protesters' if there is a chance of getting their faces onto the television or into the newspapers. Shame on them.
