    Another victory for Aktar to manipulate things.

      Supported by Momentum as well.

    I thought it was routine for Akhtar to manipulate her things ! Or have I misunderstood previous historic posts perchance?

    Labour may have scored another own goal and thrown the election with this dud.

    Perhaps if they had spent some time reading Rotherham Politics, they might not have shortlisted Shabana, never mind selected her? A monumental error? Time will tell, roll on Thursday 2nd February!

    I think Rothpol is right, At one time ( CSE) the Regional Labour Party was reading every post and taking action against their Members because of the information they were seeing here.
    By the way, does anyone know if Roddison still retains his seat on the Parish Council. Very interested to know.
