Why always Ashington?

Yet again investment will go to Ashington to the tune of £53m into its economy.

Not only is it to get the new leisure centre and town centre investments, it now gets the county council’s new HQ (News Post Leader, October 9).

Why has everything got to go to Ashington, is there some conspiracy, are all the councillors from Ashington?

why have Bedlington councillors not stood up and fought for our town, or at least explain why we are not to get anything yet again?

I am sick and tired of Bedlington being ignored when it comes to the vast amounts money being spent in ‘our’ county.

Surely we all should share out the benefits to the county as a whole?

There will never be a solution to this recurring issue and I speak for many residents when I say we are still and will always be forgotten.
