Joined Up Rotherham?

Labour dominated Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council covers an enormous area of South Yorkshire.

It has long been suspected that, through manipulation of qualifying rules and by means of links between Labour representatives, Rotherham is pretty well ‘joined up’!

In this post, the first of many we hope, we explore some of these, firstly in the area of Anston Parish:

Judith Dalton, lives in Dinnington – Borough Councillor for Anston & Woodsetts Ward is a parish councillor for Anston and deputy chair of Anston parish council.
Dominic Beck, lives in South Anston – Borough Councillor for Wales Ward and is a parish councillor for Anston.
Iain St John, lives in Dinnington – is a parish councillor for Anston and was a long time Borough Councillor for Anston & Woodsetts Ward.

Darren Hughes, lives in Catcliffe –  Borough Councillor for Anston & Woodsetts Ward, and is Chairman of Catcliffe parish council.

The information for this post was supplied by Dave Smith, to whom Rothpol is grateful. If you have any such fine examples of others of a similar kind? Rothpol would love to hear from you.

  1. A disturbing and thought-provoking piece indeed, Rothpol!

    It just goes to show the extent of the OGPU thought and behaviour control antics that the Grunters, Muppets and Clowns of Da Rovrum Laybah Grooip think they have achieved with the jaded, junketing, corpulent out-of-touch grip of their Twin Peaks-obsessed Leedah who has lately taken to having private 1-2-1 whispers in the shells of da bruvvaz-n-sistaz to the tune that he’s really really tired and there will soon come a time in the town without him.

    Oh Hosannah, roll on quickly eh? … oorraaaah 🙂

    I too look forward to a much brighter future for Rotherham Borough in general, and its democratic politics in particular, when we’re finally led by a Leader do displays charm, eloquence, integrity and honesty as their core values, and then we can sit back and watch the wonderful gratifying implosion of the political patronage and junketing culture that has for far too long dominated RMBC and also the end of the Cyclops gift-givers’ sullying presence in our local politics.

    It’s all been written about long long ago – Matthew 21:12


  2. Try taking off your recently acquired ‘rose tinted spectacles’ Grald-Hunter.
    Call me an ‘old cynic’ if you like, but remember the lessons from the cautionary tale, ‘Animal Farm’, by George Orwell. Need I say more?
    Best to stay cynical in my view.
    Never suspend critical faculties!
    Best advice I’ve ever had, applies equally in the scientific and political worlds.


  3. The other thing to look for is nepotism, on Dinnington town council for instance; we have a husband and wife team. We also have sisters who are both borough and town councillors for Dinnington. If you look closely at Anston parish council you will find the daughter of one of the Dinnington town councillors. One must keep the old family dynasty going don’t you know.
