    • Just because you do not have a restraining order against you, doesn’t mean you are free to repeat your daughters dark accusations, that have been shown to have no merit. I would recommend a period of silence on social media on your part.


      • I can say as I want these are my words and this is how I feel as she as about my daughter Laura Wilson in her book which is lies and she noes this so don’t you start on me this as nothing to do with my other daughter Sarah


  2. She can’t feel that threatened by the council enquiry can she ? She’s gone over to the dark side now hasn’t she ? Am i wrong or isn’t she now Councillor Jayne Senior another snout in the Rotherham Labour Party Trough.
