The judge saw it for what it was - a vicious vendetta against anyone (in this case Cllr Jones) who dares to cross them.
It was clear to me from the very start that the clowncil's position was untenable. Cllr Jones's initial letter was clear - It is my INTENTION to resign - that's not a resignation and can clearly be rescinded after reflection.
Why Donna's jumped the gun and called an election so quickly is anybody's guess but logic says it was done to wipe another independent dissenter from the democratic role.
There's a lot of shit in those Wigan Today articles today and yesterday from both the council and that prospective candidate for Bryn (a new Ash stooge ? which woodwork did she pop up out of ?) about 'the democratic rights of Bryners being pulled from under them' and that sort of crap. Bollocks that is.
The 'returning (unfortunately again and again) occifer' should be made to pay every single penny of the costs of this farce from her tidy little salary. Oh but she's representing the council isn't she so it's the taxpayer who gets shafted for it. How many 10's (or evne 100's ?) of thousands more does she now have to save to pay for her flying-off-the-handle antics ?
Stardelta has I see revealed undeniably and unequivocably this time his true council cuddling colours in trying to defend the council's position in the face of undeniable evidence and a judges common sense assessment.
Now I'm a true Labour man (not a new labour muppet - aka liberals)... I'm a socialist, yes we still exist, are proud to be and are more than capable of whipping the cream off the tory tart at the next election.
As for Mr Fairhurst, I don't know the man, but credit where credit is due for more than just supporting a fellow 'party' member but backing him to the hilt. Unpopular in some quarters he may be but I challenge anyone to seriously counter anything he writes on his blog.
I'm tempted to go into the top-hatted prat's role in this affair but it's friday and I don't want to spoil the start of my wekeend thinking about a burk's peerage.
Congratulations Cllr Jones (& Co), and long may you remain a councillor. Democracy demands it !
