Mark Edgell demonstrated the arrogance of Labour!

Dear Rotherham Politics readers,

In this week’s Tiser “Your Memories – 10 Years Ago”, p75, my attention was drawn to a statement back in 6 December 2002 from the then RMBC Leedah, Cllr Mark Edgell, in which he dismissed the Tiser’s phone-in poll results in which 91% of respondents came out unequivocally AGAINST the RMBC-foisted stupid £500 Million Supertram toy project.

Adv 7 Dec 2012In true arrogant, out-of-touch Rovrum Laybah RMBC-style he dismisses the citizens’ expressed opinions thus: “I do not trust the validity of phone-in polls. It is always those who are motivated to be against something who vote”.

So there you have it. Arrogance personified. Your views don’t count – to him

If your opinion dares to trangress that of the Rovrum Laybah Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns it won’t count, doesn’t matter, will be overlooked, disregarded and ignored, simply because that view doesn’t match the myopic view of those in the isolated Town Hall Towers/Lubyanka.

Well, happily we had rid of Edgell eventually

He moved on to another easy salary feeding frenzy somewhere else, but of course he’s now back and a Non-Executive Director on an easy salary at Rotherham District General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

I wonder whether he will still hold those same outdated, arrogant, out-of-touch views and will similarly advise the Chairman, Chief Executive, Directors and Non-Executive Directors of RDGH to ignore the views of hospital staff, patients, stakeholders or partners if they should ever have the cheek to “be motivated to be against something”?

Remember, we’re a-watching and a-listening. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.

Kind Regards,
