Why is Stephen Barclay only thinking about uses for Wisbech Castle, with so many empty shops?
I REALLY do despair of politicians. May I suggest that the next time Stephen Barclay visits Wisbech, assuming of course he has actually graced the town with his presence, he removes his rose tinted (or should that be blue tinted?) spectacles. I have seen

I have seen Wisbech deteriorate rapidly over the years and it has now reached a point where I no longer feel safe walking through the town.
Many of the shops are empty or in such a poor state of repair it is a wonder they are still standing. You only have to pick up a local newspaper to read a catalogue of every crime imaginable.
And is Mr Barclay concerned with any of these matters? Apparently not. His main concern is what we can use Wisbech Castle for. Am I missing some glaringly obvious point here but I thought it was being used for many more purposes already and not just the ones stated by Mr Barclay.

I have visited the Castle on many occasions. There is a sign on the door, when the house is not open to the public, saying you are free to walk around the gardens. They are a beautiful and peaceful haven in the town centre.
The forthcoming archaeological dig is a community event according to the newspapers and friends who have applied to join in, with many schools also taking part. All this and Mr Barclay wants to turn it into a caf�.
