Election Day Coverage Starts Early

Rotherham Politics readers will be interested in this insightful piece, which we hope the source intended for publication, we are grateful to you.

“As a Rotherham resident I am appalled that my taxes contribute towards paying some council workers/politicians who have no moral compass. I have had the unfortunate pleasure of working for some of these unscrupulous characters who collude in a joint pact of turning a blind eye. It’ s why we have some of the highest paid politicians and senior council officers even though we are one of the most deprived boroughs in the country.

The foster-gate scandal from my experience will lead to no insightful investigation; the very senior teams and politicians are specialists in cover-up. They will cover their tracks without morally flinching about the impact they have had on three young children and their foster parents.

I used to call them Orwellian Wizards – they develop a myth, they find and twist the evidence which supports their myth and shockingly in unison they spout out a version of reality that never happened. Amazingly they believe their own lie which becomes the evident truth – in trying to convince others they convinced themselves.  

This ability is only matched by their desperate desire to collect awards, which completes the circle – outside adulation proves they are the best, never mind the experience of local people. There are many examples I could share but one that comes to mind (and most relevant to multiculturalism) is their eagerness to be the first Council to gain Excellent in equalities (yes the irony) and guess what, these overpaid corrupt Orwellian Wizards achieved this.

I am only attacking some of the higher levels of leadership; huge amounts of the council’s workforce are decent and committed to the people of Rotherham. I urge those workers to join us and share what you know; it is a rare and overdue opportunity to get rid of the arrogant, corrupt, delusional bullies that are running our town.”

  1. A chilling insight into the cesspit culture of the higher echelons of RMBC, reading the article you can see how an organisation becomes morally bankrupt to the point of turning its back on children being abused and using the grounds of cultural sensitivities to provide cover for their repeated failings.

    What will it take for these individuals to fall on their swords?


  2. Saw the news excerpt on by election.

    When they asked her over her lack of comitment and why just joined labour. Her excuse was that she worked in the voluntary sector.

    Sarah many people who work in voluntary and charity are members of the party and trade unions.


  3. can I ask why you call them Orwellian wizards, as you describe that they manipulate the truth etc, I’m just wondering if you are saying that Orwell manipulated the truth?


    • “Orwellian” is an adjective describing the situation, idea, or societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society. It connotes an attitude and a policy of control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past, as depicted in his novels, particularly Nineteen Eighty-Four and that many of us experience in towns like Rotherham!


      • The situation is undoubtedly Orwellian, but maybe more like Animal Farm than Nineteen Eighty-four.

        And never ever forget:
        “The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting”
        Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting.


  4. Thankyou regular reader for this insight and thanks to rothpol for publishing it here. It is quite frightening when we realise the extent of the dishonesty of some of those in RMBC and in town/parish councils too. Now surely is the time for these corrupt people to be outed, once and for all.
    Anonymous – I think perhaps you need to look again at Orwell. The tag given as Orwellian Wizards seems to me to fit perfectly with the attitude of our councillors and MP’s.

    “In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
    ― George Orwell
