the Tory rap

Recommended Posts

maybe....maybe not. but whoever I voted for convinced me to vote for them based on what they said up until the time I voted..... naturally they will have lied to get my vote; just like every other politician will lie to get everyone elses vote....that's just what they do

 

but needless to say I didn't vote Labour in the local elections because all of the councillors who have come on here and all of the ones I see on Facebook and the likes (apart from Billy Lines Rowlands who does appear to be quite sincere in what he says) Have done nothing but blame everything bad on everyone else apart from themselves

 

Apparently my local Labour councillor is someone called Faisal.... I have never seen him, heard of him and he certainly doesn't do anything for the local area that I am aware of (or he certainly doesn't publicise it anyway).

 

I got a leaflet through my door today and by the time I got to the front door, whoever had posted it had gone. It was about Faisal... Too late mate...already voted :)

Indeed they are the councillors for Westbrook... but even though I live opposite the Westbrook Centre and St Philips School at Westbrook, my address is Westbrook, and I live about 500 yards from a sign that says Westbrook.... I am in the Whittle Hall Ward and it must be too far for Faisal to normally be bothered to get off his arse more than once every 4 years in order to introduce himself...

 

Me... I class myself as quite clearly living in Westbrook and have no affiliation to Whittle Hall whatsoever... they may as well put me down as living in Longford.

 

And as I have said, Faisal Rashid, Will Hughes (both Labour) have never once set foot near my house in all the years I have lived here.... The only chap who has is Keith Gleave for the Lib Dems and we get a regular news letter from him and he came round and introduced himself a few years ago. Obviously the two Labour ones forget we are in their ward....

One of the issues I have noticed in the Ward that there was no resident's involvement and integration with local authority and local Councillors. I am pleased to start and Chair community meetings which have been held at Whittle Hall community centre on a regular basis. I personally take responsibility in organising those meetings from setting up agenda, sharing minutes, inviting relevant guests, involving residents and promoting the meetings across the Ward. These meetings have been extremely successful and very well attended by the residents and community groups. We have and will be discussing issues like broadband speed, Omega South development, Traffic, Transport, School Provision, Health centres, community centres, building resident's associations and many more.

Surprisingly I can read too... and yes he may well do those things.... but he does them all, without exception in Whittle hall. I live in Westbrook.... which is also part of his ward and as such he should do some of that stuff over here to accomodate his constituents from over here (of whom there are many)... in fact his area covers more than 3/4 of the close I live in with about 10 houses bat the far end being in the Westbrook ward. 

 

As for promoting the meetings...I think he may have dreamed that bit because we certainly don't get to hear about them

I suppose it's as you are in Whittle Hall ward and Whittle Hall has a community centre which the council have use of.  I guess this makes more sense than building one in your close to accommodate the residents of 3/4 of an entire close :wink:  If you feel forgotten get in touch with them.  Here are the details.

I'm saddened yet unsurprised lol

 

saddened why?

 

The fact that I am not interested in being represented by members of a party I happen to despise? I have a much greater level of hatred towards the Labour party as you have for UKIP only mine has been like that since the first time I was able to vote.

 

They have done nothing that I could ever relate to and have over the years just become another branch of the Tory party; in it for what they can get for themselves whilst trying to get the rest of the country to feel sorry for people who spend more time moaning about how bad their lot is than they do trying to do something about it themselves.

So you despise Labour for becoming a branch your party of choice at the last elections, i.e. the Tories.  I don't quite follow that logic.

 

 Your local councillors, regardless of party politics,  are all you have to go to to try to get anything done for your local area.  You moaned that they do nothing for Westbrook and never visit yet they hold regular surgeries in probably the only venue in Westbrook available to them.   It's  a stones throw for everyone living in Westbrook so a feeble excuse for not engaging.   If you have never contacted them its unlikely they will just pitch up at your doorstep to see if there is anything they can do to help.  I suppose it is easier to moan on here Baz, I do the same but rest assured if a local issue was winding me up I would be in touch with my local councillor, who lives in Burtonwood by the way :wink:

They always spouted that they were the party of the working man and yet when they finally got elected it was on the New Labour ticket.... 3 terms of a labour government and they did more to help bankers and millionaires than the tories ever did and yet speak to anyone who is supposedly a labour voter now and they deny it was the Labour party in power or yes we made tons of mistakes and did tons of things wrong but you can trust us now.... Maybe Russell Brand has a point about not voting after all..... maybe none of the lying sods deserve our vote after all

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he

asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a
'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a baker comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing
community service this week.' The baker was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank
you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Member of Parliament came in for a haircut, and when he went to
pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from
you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Parliament
was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.
And that, sadly, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
