As this post is being prepared, Holderness Labour are distributing this scurrilous leaflet in the Parish of Aston. They must be extremely worried if they are going to the trouble of attacking them in this disgraceful way!
I reproduce a scan of the offensive leaflet:
The following points should be noted:
David Gee is a trained Accountant, but they make no mention of keeping him off the Finance Committee or not giving him access to the full accounts.
Paul Martin does not live in the ward but lives within the permitted boundary for election purposes (one of the Labour Councillors Jane Austen sat on the Council for some time even though she had moved to Eckington which is almost in Derbyshire!! He did not change from party to party but was forced to realine himself as the parties themselves dissolved or ran into problems.
They know so little about our arrangements that they are mixing up a “group” with a party.
Don Blow – Aston-cum-Aughton Independents a group of independent minded folk – part of Rotherham Independents.
Editorial Note: At risk of seeming to be pedantic, a quick glance at Labour’s imprint and other deficiencies suggest that this leaflet is probably illegal! Not very clever are they?
4 Brook Close, Aston, Sheffield, S26 2GB, isn’t that the home address of Holderness RMBC councillor Gerald Smith? Bit daft to put your home address on a leaflet such as this, I would have thought?
