Where did he get that idea from? Three


Another piece of the evidence Jigsaw? Strange case of the disappearing leaflet?

In times of universal deceit?

In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.

George Orwell

Unfortunately for us citizens of Rotherham, Orwell’s quotation seems to have great resonance in our Town of today.

The Labour Party has always taken the people for granted, now they seem to have become fond of deploying the most outrageous and despicable untruths, in order to garner future electoral support for themselves, based on downright lies and deceptions!

Why does the Labour Party fail to deal with their completely out of control members?

The likely result? Labour will take a pasting from those, who oppose and utterly reject their ‘old fashioned’, control freakery! There is revolution brewing in parts of our town and it is increasing with every day that passes by.

That Time Of Year?

Or, more information than you can shake a stick at!

Now the elections are but a distant memory, we can turn our thoughts to checking up on our Councillors. Rotherham Politics makes part of this process, at least simple.
