Special South Yorkshire Police Authority 23/09/2011 11:30 – Isn’t technology wonderful!

South Yorkshire Police Authority is meeting tomorrow at 11:30 for a special session about the police helicopter. View this at 11:30 23rd September.

The good news is, we can all see it as it happens, thanks to wonderful technology!

The same technology is installed in our very own Rotherham Town Hall but has never been used for anything yet, beyond providing the current Mayor Shaun Wright with a nice souvenir of his installation.

Personally speaking, making any meeting is quite a challenge, therefore I welcome this development and would ask why RMBC do not use the technology at their disposal to webcast their meetings? We, the people of Rotherham Town and Borough, deserve nothing less!

Watch out for Terry Sharman in action, most likely to be inaction though, from the comfort of your own armchair! Click here at 11:30 23rd September.

One of our main purposes is to lobby for greater openness, transparency and public access to information.

  1. Due to work professional commitments I couldn’t access IT yesterday to watch this fun at the time, so I thought I’d catch it now …

    But guess what …

    I got this message when I clicked the website –
    Webcast Not Available
    Sorry, this webcast is not currently available.

    This did not come as any surprise or disappointment at all, and only what I’ve come to expect from statutory authorities and elected members who seem to prefer to operate in the dark and out of public view and scrutiny.

    I wonder if LA’s issue NVG to newly elected councillors to better enable them to conduct ops in the dark? …

    You really couldn’t make it up …

  2. And here’s Rik’s update –
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
    Update: I thought this information piece might at the very least excite some comment – little did I expect to shake the two Labour members out of hiding that it has.

    Firstly Community Champion, a Labour member who hails from Conisborough and a callow youth and secondly Stewart Platt, a Labour member From Maltby who is also a Maltby Town Councillor and who is definitely old enough to know better, have been misbehaving while the shop was left unattended! I hope these two miserable Labour specimens, might reflect on their evident foolishness, childishness or even worse and apologise, on behalf of their party for bringing Labour and Maltby Town Council in to disrepute and subject to ridicule!

    The attitudes displayed are an affront to democracy especially when coming from members of ‘a mainstream left-wing democratic political party’, they display all the arrogance of power, Labour dictatorships in both their home boroughs, a basic disdain of anyone who challenges them at the polls, or their opinions or indeed even asks questions!

    Yeah, those two Labour members mentioned in despatches may wish the world would assume the deep red rosy hue of one of them’s high prescripton complex lens tinted spectacles, but those of us who vote Labour, but don’t support them with our money through party membership, find the current antics of the Corn Fed Hogs and Muppets and the Cabinet Clown to be deeply repugnant in the extreme.

    And no amount of tantrums or loud shouting on their two parts, or any of their kling-on muckers, will dissuade us from our civic duty to scrutinise, challenge and hold to account those who we freely elect and pay handsomely (more than Sheffield City Council ) to govern our wonderful Rotherham Borough on our behalf with our consent.
