The Rotherham Politics active and empowered reader, correspondent and “critical friend” of Rotherham Laybah Grooip and RMBC, Grald-Hunter, came across this latest petulant twitter flutter outburst – http://twitter.com/mahroofhussain – from our Aspirant MP, 1st Class Rail Travel Guru, Supporter of Section 106 £247,500 against RDGH and Man Of The People, Cllr Mahroof Hussain, in which he berates the Planning Inspector who has allowed the appeal by KFC who want to build a restaurant at Canklow and provide employment and dining opportunities for customers passing along Canklow Road.
Our “man of the people” takes it upon himself to dare to assume that Canklow residents, and any other potential customers, don’t have the life skills, educational intellect or willpower to decide how/when/where/what to purchase and eat …

Did interview on @BBCSheffield Toby Foster show this morning on #KFC building nxt to canklow primary school even though everyone opposed it
Along with PAK Supermarket presented 2 Wii’s to Rotherham Children’s ward for Dr Ted appeal http://t.co/DZsGfsCb
Unbelievable!! #KFC wins appeal to build KFC at Canklow only 20 secs from primary school. Parents, kids, NHS, school, cllrs opposed it
He further goes rambling on about the unfairness that “everyone opposed” the KFC application. So let’s have a look-see who “the everyone” is that he alludes to –
1. RMBC Councillors – well that’s only 63 if everyone of them voted against it.
2. The School – maybe a headteacher, 20-30 staff, 150-ish children.
3. The NHS – wow, manpower next to the Chinese Red Army, and the Indian State Railways.
Now let’s do some Dolly Twin Peaks fantasy story digging into those figures above. Are you ready? Then I shall begin … Once upon a time …
a – The RMBC Councillors probably only relate to the Laybah chums on the Planning Board, aka a handful of muckers.
b – A headteacher and staff supports RMBC opposition’s to this enterprise. Well of course they will, the school is an RMBC one, and any teacher who wants their career and pension to flourish won’t go against the socialist bruvvaz-n-sistaz will they?
c – The NHS. At best it’s maybe a handful of muckers from Rotherham PCT Public Health who consort and support RMBC in its nanny-state interference in citizens’ lives.
I too share Cllr Hussain’s incandescent rage at communities who against their will have projects foisted onto them by arrogant out-of-touch statutory agencies and I strongly advise Cllr Hussain to consult with the people of Bramley village and area who have suffered the imposition of the Bramley Traffic Mismanagement Scheme purely on the myopic vindictive whim of the Caution Cabinet Clown …
Yes, Mahroof, we here on this side of the Borough are quite used to being overlooked, overruled, ignored and imposed upon by you and your gang of Corn Fed Hogs, Muppets and Clowns from RMBC.
We all share your pain but we’ve grown a pair and moved on. Maybe you can too.
Readers will not want to miss this from Mahroof, Rotherham councillor hits out at planning decision. Or this from the Advertiser, KFC wins battle for Canklow drive-thru.
