18 June 2012 Finance Committee
Welcome to Martin Crowther – New Chair – At last! Someone who understands finance.
No Agendas available for the public
Q Why on earth not
A The clerk was asked
Q What did he say
A Well he mumbled a couple. of times (totally inaudible)
Then shouted to the public it is an omission. Can you hear me now
Wow clear and loud – so the mumbling is deliberate?
Cllr Martin Crowther the Chair
Q Wasn’t he absent when he was voted as Chair
Q Thought you had to be present
A Well yu know – It is Anston Parish Council
Q How did he do
A A bit nervous and a bit rushing
Q Think he will improve
Cllr Thornton (Independent) asked that the minutes be changed by resolution.
They were not a true record of events AGAIN. The final two lines of the minute were proposed to be deleted.
The Labour party plus Independent Labour voted against the proposal thus leaving the inaccurate recording in the minutes.
Q Why did councillors vote to retain minutes that were untrue
A Come off it – yu know it’s Anston Parish Council –
Q Is this a new thing
A Oh goodness no – integrity – forget it – this is the umpteenth time they have voted to
keep untrue recordings in the minutes. They don’t record what happened but what they would like to have happened.
INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! Get a dictionary and understand the definition councillors
Booming Booming Beck – Why was he shouting “Move we accept the Minutes”
Waaaaait a minute –
Q Wasn’t he chairing the previously meeting
A Most definitely
Q Wouldn’t he know the minutes were untrue
A Most definitely
SO – Our newly elected Chair of the Parish Council is willing to condone the false recording of minutes. Shouting “Move we accept the Minutes” To cover his mistakes!
INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! Get a dictionary and understand the definition Chairman
Awards Evening aka The Parish Council Bun Fight
When the question of the costs of this freebie for councillors came up guess what Cllr Judy Dalton said “I do not eat anything at this and I try very hard not to listen to the music”
No sarcasm then Cllr Dalton! oink oink
Booming Beck “I would ask Clive (Jepson, Independent) not to mutter under his breath when I am speaking”

Q How much do taxpayers have to cough up for their bun fight each year

INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! Get a dictionary and you know the rest
On the recorded vote when Cllr Jepson (Independent) abstained
Q Why did Booming Beck insult him saying “Councillor Jepson is a disgrace”
A And this from someone who’se integrity has been questioned, see above,
Q Is it acceptable for the Chairman to comment on peoples voting method –
A NO – Trying to influence councillors decisions in this manner is bullying.
Q Is the Chairman getting too big for his boots
A You Bet – should listen to more experience councillors
INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! INTEGRITY! Get a dictionary and look up bullying
