Back to the issue of justice.
“Just had a look at google maps and discovered that the proposed extension is to the north of Asbo’s property..hence natural light is not a problem. Only leaves the being overlooked issue and that’s normally ease to solve.i.e. wall or widow placements. I will be sending my Planners advice to the owners. I will take advice on the propriety of the decision and the policies they cited.
As for MBlogger; my comments are literate and clear (save for the odd typo for which I apologise) requiring no clarification, I am resigned to MB and I no longer being friends as in life sometimes one just need to move on,
I agree that this is a political not religious blog, However it is naive not to understand when the two come together. Ask the people of Northern Ireland.
For example: there are some big tensions within the UK’s communities of Pakistan origin, Tensions that threaten to tear apart the traditional biraderi block vote system, the system that gives Asbo his power. The victory of Respect in Bradford was very much a symptom of this breaking down and hence Asbo’s loathing and fear of them.
To keep his power Asbo needs to keep all the Pakistani origin communities sticking together. It goes like this. If Asbo can guarantee 200 hundred votes in each central Ward it may not seem a lot. But if those votes are switched to Respect then it becomes as good as 400, and it is goodbye to Dodger and a lot of Labour councillors – believe me they know this. It is why they grit their teeth and make him Deputy Leader.
The comments about Deobandi and Barelvi illustrate this potential fracturing. They are both strands of Islam with their own Masjids. In Rotheram and Bradford the Barelvi, to whom Asbo belongs, are the majority.
There is long history if dislike, distrust and rivalry between these two themes of Islam, However in the UK they often stick (vote) together because their leaders encourage them to be more fearful of the everyone else.
Put simply, if Rotherhams Deobandi vote Respect Asbo’s 200 guaranteed vote delivery could be cut by 20%, and that 20% voted Respect -it is enough to seriously damage his hold on the Labour Party. In numerical terms he can only deliver 160 while 80 got to the opposition.
So, back to my original article.
Why did he not object formally to the application as is his right?
1. He thought he could swing it his way anyway.
2.Anon gives a clue.
To his Deobandi neighbours he can say “nothing to do with me pals, I didn’t even bother to object. Its them there Planners”.
They will grizzle and groan but can’t prove it.”
