I would like to send my best wishes to the new cohort of Labour women councillors, Shabana Ahmed, Maggie Clark, Maggie Godfrey and Lauren Astbury, who represent a brave new enlightened chapter in Rotherham democratic politics.
Now you are in place to represent the town’s citizens, please please please use your advanced superior powers of communication, cooperation, fiscal management, family management, integrity, scruples and honour to set yourselves apart from the elderly, male, grey-haired, corpulent, out-of–touch Laybah Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns who so readily subscribe to Da Dodger’s grubby political patronage machine and ruin our town in the process.
When Da Dodger sez if you play your cards right you can come on a junket, or sit on this committee, or manage that portfolio, please tell him to remember that he’s talking to a female councillor with principles and politely decline to be compromised.
Great hopes are with you ladies, please please please, don’t let us down. We’re watching and waiting.
