Akhtar is unhappy that both Tory and UKIP (let’s call them TUKIP) Councillors aren’t helping Labour figure out where cuts can be made. He’s so pleased with this deep political insight that he talked the Tiser into printing his thoughts twice (NB Maybe reports that the Tiser editor’s wife now works for the Labour Party are true.)
Meanwhile Roger is banging on about how we’re all in it together & how we all need to work together to stave off these wicked threats together; He’s consulting about cuts, seeking ideas from the public, listening to what you think etc etc…..calling upon Rotherham’s equivalent to the blitz spirit to carry us through.
Given that he’s rarely in Rotherham it’s hard to figure out how we can do anything together…or maybe he’s taking us all to Romania for bit of a break? A bit of sunshine anyone?
So after 40 odd years of total political domination, the abuse of democratic openness and the reduction of our Town image to that of “Child Sex Abuse Capital” the local Labour party appear to be asking us our thoughts?
And somewhat laughably accusing an opposition, who for 40 years they deliberately kept in the dark and ridiculed, of failing to contribute ideas as to how to help them get out of their current mess?
What does all this tell us:
*Could be that we really are in the ordure when even they are asking for others opinion?
No, no no, silly you. We are in the ordure but Hell will freeze over before these two take any notice of what we think.
This is an election year and they are having to work out how they will con us into forgetting the mess they’ve got us into. Suddenly your vote (oooops, opinion) is of value, and sad as they are the opposition need a kicking- something Akhtar is really good at).
Akhtar (who even his own party hope he gets kicked out, because they’re too frit to do it themselves) is worried about his seat and decided the Party needs a Campaign Communications Strategy to help his Campaigns Officer – note use of the term “his”.
The first problem was convincing Roger the Dodger to say something at all. However after a lengthy séance he was finally contacted and tactics agreed:
The minutes read:
Blame the Tories
Blame the Officers
Put a smokescreen over the Costs of having Councillors & their perks while closing Children’s Units by running a phony public consultation scheme( Cllr Wyatt was thanked for this thoughts).
Make sure the inquiry into child sexual exploitation doesn’t report until after the election (then blame the officers).
Appoint Akhtar as LP head of Communications, albeit with girlfriend acting as a soft front to make it more cuddly.
Focus on the wonderful Akhtar in order to get him elected and prepare the world for his becoming leader in 2015. Point out his strengths as a part time Muslim (religious in Rotherham, but elsewhere… let the good time roll.)
Don’t tell electorate that a vote for Akhtar this year is a vote for a convicted violent offender to be leader of the Council in 2015.
Disguise the recently purchased Audi Limos for Councillors as grass cutting machines and don’t wash them—sack those staff who would normally wash them.
Am I wrong? welllll…if Rogers Consultation scheme ever puts the following question I will apologise:
“Would you rather retain 13 Child Care support units OR remove 30% of Councillors, reduce the remainders remuneration by 10% and sell of the Audi Limos”
The answer is why you will never be asked the question.
