Dear Rotherham Politics readers,
I just came across this most interesting item relating to the amazing John Wesley on 6 October 1774 and thought just how topical this is in the context of the forthcoming PCC elections. His items of advice are thus –
1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy.
2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against.
3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.
And then I thought to myself, I wonder just how many of the RMBC Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns could honestly say that when they voted for Shaun Da Sheep as Rovrum Laybah candidate for South Yorkshire Police & Crime Commissioner that they honestly judged him as the most worthy?
I certainly know from my THT Agents “Garbo” and “ZigZag” that the Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns regularly bad-mouth Da Sheep behind his woolly back, so he’s failed on point 2 as well.
Ah well, we’ll get our chance to decide soon, and then active and empowered citizens can sit back and enjoy scrutinising whoever manages to scrape the bottom of the barrel with their votes.
