On another of Rotherham’s blogs, Anston Parish Council Watch, we find this interesting story about the ultimate future of APC:
End of the line for Anston Parish Council?
There is a report in the ‘Advertiser’ and ‘Worksop Guardian’ editions of Friday 27th March which mentions the 35 complaints to RMBC’s Monitoring Officer about the council and why APC could be scrapped. http://www.worksopguardian.co.uk/news/local/end-of-the-line-for-anston-parish-council-talks-of-disbandment-after-dozens-of-complaints-receieved-and-councillor-slaps-member-of-public-1-7172643. *ADDENDUM* A list of the complaints can be found at the bottom of the page.*
Unfortunately both newspaper reports are guilty of serious omissions; In the case of Cllr.Thornton reporter Laura Drysdale does not mention that Mr.Bill Brindley-the other person involved in the fracas with Cllr.Thornton-and husband of sham Independent Joyce Brindley was also bound over on TWO counts; Assault and Threatening behaviour. (Joyce wants everyone to keep schtum about this because it ruins her act of false superiority) Secondly, Chairman John Ireland is quoted as saying “he is not aware of complaints relating to the parish council as a whole”.
