So it looks like jobs for the boys again, Darren Hughes and Robin Stonebridge.
Just to remind your readers, Cllr Hughes stood as a Tory against Robin Stonebridge who was then the Labour Councillor for Anston and Woodsetts. Cllr Hughes took the seat from Robin, who no doubt was very unhappy about losing all that dosh.
Cllr Hughes then let down the people who voted for him by defecting to the Labour Party. Darren and Robin are now new best pals.
Shortly before Robins defeat at the Borough elections, Robin left the Parish Council at Anston saying he was being bullied by “certain” members of the public. Darren wrote to the Advertiser shortly after his resignation, lets remind him and everyone else what he said about his new best pal:
“It seems to me that Cllr Stonebridge is incapable of dealing with a meeting involving a few members of the public, pensioners so I have been informed, who obviously have issues to raise.
If Cllr Stonebridge is incapable of dealing with the Public at Parish Council meetings, how can he be effective and perform his duties as a Borough Councillor.
If he can`t handle a few pensioners then he should resign as a Borough Councillor immediately, as he clearly seems lacking in the necessary skills to perform this important role.
The last thing we need is another sheep who has no skills or opinions of his own and is simply herded by the labour hierarchy.
The condition of our roads defies belief, all under the administration of Cllr Stonebridge and his Labour colleagues – a Council that does as it pleases without listening to the public which it represents.
It is time that the people of Anston and Woodsetts and Rotherham as a whole sent a clear message to Rotherham`s Labour-controlled council. Its time for change.”
Hands up, all those who think Cllr Hughes will be speaking in Robins favour at selection time.
