Akhtar & Co – Dirty Tricks Explained

Saw the article headline in RothBradpol about an interview with Rik and was interested to know what he had to say to Akhar’s organ.

So had a look and was amazed to see that despite the title he has no comment from Rik. I pointed this out to the blog, but for some reason the refused to publish me, despite it being  perfectly well written and without abusive terms.

I also noted the usual misogynistic rubbish we have come to expect from Akhtar, referring to the Yvonne Ridley as the “Dumpy Sorceress”.

Akhtar really has however got a thing from Sarah Champion and says, “Sarah is not called ‘Champion’ without good reason.”  Given her general sensitivity to what she sees as abusive terms, I wonder how she feels about having a “Champion, champion” who is so quick to abuse her opponents? Will she have a word with Akhtar or is she too desperate for the biraderi vote?

For those who think it’s me being offensive about Akhtar being the driving force and de facto editor of RothBradPol I suggest you browse the blog and see some of the character assassinations of people we know he seriously dislikes, and the sycophancy from those we know to be his acolytes.

Also look at the article and the section from Akhtar:

Exposing the lies and half truths on Child exploitation     http://goo.gl/d4JoCL

It is quite a denial and justification for child care in Rotherham. The quality of the writing is fairly good, but a little bureaucratic in style.

Those who know Akhtar will appreciate that he is probably using officers again to write his very personal press releases. He isn’t the Cabinet  member responsible for talking about sex grooming, so the whole set up of this little gem is contrived to get him around Cabinet rules.

As RothBrad Pol is a contrivance to get him around the Labour Group decision to not allow members to contribute to RothPol, and his steaming temper which prevents him from keeping his mouth shut.

There is  reason why he isn’t trusted as a spokesperson on this subject, indeed why he has now been forced to make his Twitter account for friends only is his ability to put his foot in in his mouth.

At the end of the “Exposing the lies and half truths on Child exploitation” article he states

“Finally I challenge anyone to produce a single piece of evidence to support the outrageous allegations that ” certain aggressive cllrs stopped investigation” These allegations are total lies”.

Well we now know of at least one occasion when someone who became a Councillor appears to have worked a deal to prevent a child abuser being arrested. Isn’t that awfully similar to stopping an investigation, after all for some years that was the result.

  1. Akhtar still has a Labour Party membership card?

    This sort of behaviour alone, should be enough for his membership to be suspended, pending a Labour Party disciplinary process.

    I am beginning to suspect the competence of the ‘due diligence’ process, as far as Labour is concerned, if it results in Akhtar being re-selected to fight the Rotherham Ward next May!


  2. Do emails and letters count as proof lol. The term wobbly self placed pedestal comes to mind.

    You see I’m not only an avid collector of fairy figurines (ever the little girl at heart) Sheffield Wednesday and England football programmes (how sad – my Dads fault) and Trade Union Badges (My true love) but I also tend to save very embarrassing ‘communications’ from senior RMBC ‘officials’. Oh by the way my legal advisers have them too.

    Oh happy days.




    • I’d swap you my collection of early 1960’s Scottish League 1 & 2 programmes for a photocopy of those letters:) Good idea for Rik “Rothpol does barter.”


      • Thanks William,

        I think I may have them already William – family roots in Scotland is one of my proud boasts – as well as England, Wales, Ireland, Spain,France, Israel,. Germany, The USA and The USSR. A UKIP nightmare am I LOl..

        Seriously though, as I promised, once my legal adviser have ‘sorted it’ you can have a view – no problems. The jargon (it is RMBC), trail and ‘cast ‘ needs explaining but although short (but not sweet) they are very damning. Personally I can’t understand why RMBC ignored them and thought it would all disappear.

        I have kept them in several places just in case someone else sends his friends around lol. Everything I do is legal – but I do hear i happens.




  3. Where have tbe cllrs disappeared to?
    Spot the cllr is harder than spot the ball

    At a time of deep cuts to jobs and services why not scrap the expensive role of mayer and biggins turn?

    OR elect a chair on no perks or extra pay
    And mayor cud be fully ceremonial and voluntary role given to volunteers in
    community for local service


  4. Don’t be daft Toy. Anyone who isn’t a card carrying member of the Labour party being mayor of Rotherham? Unheard of!
    It’s much you don’t have to produce your membership card just to walk into the Town Hall with this set of commie b********s


  5. The dots are now being joined up, the leaks from closed cabinet meetings have stopped, the press being given details of the Leaders trips has stopped, the brutal back stabbing has almost stopped and the name calling directed to the Leader has stopped.

    I wonder who is missing?

    The Leader has an opportunity to end the leaks the back stabbing for good, will he make the move?


  6. “Finally I challenge anyone to produce a single piece of evidence to support the outrageous allegations that ” certain aggressive cllrs stopped investigation” These allegations are total lies”.

    Deconstructed this means, “I will bully and harass anyone who tells the truth about me!”

    Jahangir Akhtar and his ‘Army’ are a thorough disgrace to democratic politics, whatever party they were members of, but, that they are members of the Labour Party, makes it doubly outrageous.

    Ed Miliband wants the voters to believe this kind of behaviour is in the past, but Drapers excesses are nothing compared to the activities of Akhtar’s poisonous crew!

    Is Ed Miliband frightened of standing up for the long suffering Rotherham public? It certainly looks like it!

  9. It is beyond doubtful the Labour party NEC will take any action to investigate and/or sanction any of the ‘Brothers and Sisters’ in Rotherham, how can they when both Champion and Barron remain mute about the behaviour of Stone, Kimber,Thacker, Wright and Akhtar?
    The Labour party is happy one of its councils remains under Labour control, how individual councillors conduct themselves is of no consequence as long as Labour councillors are in the majority.
    ‘By their actions shall you know them’.
    ‘Nuff said.

  11. It’s time for Cllr Vines and his people’s army to march into the audit office and demand to know how much money went to the Unity Centre, REMA and explore if there was any corrupt practices.
