Rumour has it that Councillor Emma Hoddinott hasn’t been seen much in the ward she represents these past few months, though that’s not to say she hasn’t been a busy little bee in other quarters. Before the festive season kicked … Continue reading

Dear Rotherham Politics readers,
Just in case you had fallen asleep content in your slumbers that the new Wickersley ward Laybah Councillor, Ms Stasi Commissaress, was busy beavering away on behalf of you and your fellow Wickersley residents and Rovrum townspeople.
Well feast your eyes on this piece of utter drivel which surpasses any previous records for sheer banality …

A nice surprise to get a letter from the Prime Minister today! 2 hours ago
Got a letter from the Prime Minister, “a nice surprise” eh?
And a rich millionaire top Tory toff PM at that!
I know what I’d do with that letter.
I’d keep the darned thing so so secret that no-one would ever know that me as an Old Labour socialist voter had ever received anything, let alone “thanks” from one of the much-detested Blues who have heaped so much pain, suffering and injustice on my old coal-mining and steel-making town.
But not Ms Stasi Commissaress, oh no!
She has to tell all her chattering clarsses Champayne Sewshallist Laybah Luvvies “that I’ve had a letter from the PM dear”, oh do parss the Pinot Grigio there’s a dear.
The sooner this insincere career-climbing Pilgrim finds a safe well-paid Parliamentary seat to sit on the happier I’ll be. Oh and take that other relative newbie ward buffoon with you, purleez.
What a pair of utter deadbeats. It must be murder for poor old hardworking Cllr Sue Ellis having to work with two such trivial muppets. I bet she has to watch her back at every turn.
Dear Cllrs Ellis, Hoddinott and Read,
Having read the attached personal Twitter, and discovered that you are running a survey in Wickersley Ward – http://twitter.com/christophe_read – I have tried to access and complete this survey online – http://wickersleyward.org.uk/?page_id=132 – and have been unable to.
When I tried to make a comment on the “other” choice, as none of the alternatives were of interest to me, I find that the page does not accept my free typing and I can get no further to submit my views as an active and empowered citizen.
I shall be grateful therefore if you can arrange to send me a paper hard copy of the survey which I can then complete and return.
Please use the same home address that you have previously used for personal correspondence in connection with the reduction in hours for Wickersley Community Library.
Your early response to the above will be greatly appreciated by me.

Thank you for letting us know, and for your interest in the survey. I’m sorry that you have encountered this problem, which we hadn’t picked up previously. We will get a hard copy to your home address, and try to remedy the problem with the online version.
Dear Cllr Read,
Thank you for your prompt and courteous response.
As an active and very empowered citizen, voter and ratepayer I look forward to receiving the hard-copy questionnaire and participating in local democracy in my Wickersley ward.
