Not with a bang, but a whimper

Roger Stones illustrious political career has come to a halt.

He has now stood down as a Councillor! Presumably too late for a by-election though?

The weight of the Jay Report has claimed another. But quietly with no fanfare.

    • Rotherham Politics has to enforce part of our conditions concerning registration of those who comment on this blog. Put simply, this is how to both register and preserve the confidentiality you may require.

      1. Choose an identity, best to keep it short.

      2. Email Rothpol putting register in the subject line and your chosen identity in the body text.

      3. When you receive a confirmatory email, you will then be able to comment freely.

      Rotherham Politics is a moderated blog , comments are published at the discretion of the moderator. This doesn’t equate to censorship, as Rothpol is prepared to publish comments that are adding to the debate, even if critical of Rotherham Politics!

      No one needs to reveal their identity, all Rothpol is asking is to be able to tell everyone apart, nothing else!

      Simply use a pseudonym, get a free email account in that name and use it to establish two way communication with me. Hushmail, is both free and secure, and is to be recommended.”


    • if people on the electoral roll in the ward he represented were so minded they could call a by- election now because they are under represented . I forget the number of signatures needed but it isnt many


      • I just read the Advertiser and the six month rule on by-election – so my previous comment is useless – about as useless as what councillor Stone has been to the people he is supposed to represent. For him to be allowed to work that resignation to bring in the six month rule just shows utter contempt to the people who put him there


  1. At least he stood down immediately and now finally has gone from public office. Wouldn’t it be great if he actually came out and now told the whole truth. When did he first find out, when did others and why they all did nothing. If he’s a Religious man, nothing will ever absorb of his guilt or shame.


    • Hey Caven, I saw your email asking Ian Thomas whether RMBC is paying Derbyshire and Lincoln anything “for the loan” of their employees Ali Noble, Maureen Evans and David McWilliams. Do you think we should be paying?


  2. A shameful councillor, common knowledge for many years in his time at RMBC amongst employees, a bully for sure, I witnessed that. Goodbye Mr Stone, fingers crossed it’s also goodbye OBE, but then again that wasn’t awarded through your services to the council, it was awarded through all the lobbying by your ‘mates’ ………..
