2012 A year of elections? Local elections in May, PCC election, mid November and the Rotherham by-election at the end of November, contributed to a very busy year and a distinct bias towards those associated posts.

The real surprises were in the number one and four position. The Joyce Thacker story went viral after the UKIP fostering scandal broke, towards the end of the by-election campaign and the resultant international interest. The second surprise is indicative of interest in the Deputy Leader and his antics from the now infamous walkout at the selection meeting to the present. A much clearer picture of Jahangir Akhtar is emerging.

  1. Comrades,
    I note with an air of despondency that the editor of Rotherham Politics failed to get a mention in the New Year’s Honour’s list although I’m quite convinced glittering prizes are not his prime motivation.
    However, as I sit here, a humble tricoteuse, in my front row seat, drum roll starting in the background, I’m quietly confident a few political scalps will be claimed by Rothpol in 2013, the Year of the Whistle Blower.
    Tell Wind and Fire where to stop; but don’t tell Rothpol.
    In the name of the Republic of Rotherham,
    Yours, still knitting and ever hopeful,
    Madame Thérèse Defarge
