There have now been four Ask JP sessions. The statistics re number of questions asked are:

May 2016...26
Nov 2016...25
Apr 2017...14
Nov 2017... 5

Why has interest dropped so drastically? Apathy? Mistrust? Some other reason? Is there any point in continuing with these session?

Whilst figures can be made to represent what you want them to, it ironic that from the total views of just over 3500 from the 8 subjects on offer, nearly 1000 were to view the answer of JP retirement !!

Summise what you wish from this on a subject that was deemed childish !

edit: figures as at time of posting

Subject of Tolls scored 254 !!

It had had it's day after the very 1st one, you were at the Tolls meeting Pally, did his mention of the forum consultation match what you had read and contributed to. IMHO he treated the forum and it's members with utter contempt and should never have been allowed back. All he is doing by "consulting" the forum is ticking another box to say he has done it.

I think it is important for me to state that I am willing to continue with the Ask JP sessions should the Forum wish to.

I would like to think that the declining number of questions is in part due to the increasing number of opportunities that we give people to engage with the Authority in various ways.

I would also assure the forum that is definitely not a ‘tick box’ exercise. I hope that by providing answers to all questions from Forum members I am demonstrating a genuine desire to share information and address concerns.

I personally find it a useful process and hope it continues.

Regards

John

In truth most of the "general" questions will have been asked in the first couple of sessions. There is no point in repeating them. So only new things that have come up recently will be on the agenda. So there is bound to be fewer now.
If and when anything new and serious comes up it will be worth keeping this channel open. Probably once a year is sufficient though. Both for the sake of the forum and the BA staff.

Hello
Sorry Harlequin have to disagree with once a year as peoples circumstances can change quicker than that. Attitudes to agenda may only change with an AGM but they are only influenced by the issues that are brought forward in the preceding year. Some characters like their information in manageable portions.
Regards
Marge and Parge
