    Why does Eric Pickles think he can make laws without any debate or the representations being considered?

    A legally explicit law with regard filming has been overturned by him using twitter to bully a council.

    Has he forgotten that the councillors say very little in meetings, and simply just vote after a few questions. The main part is the representations and possibly site visits neither of which, even he admits, should be filmed.

    Labour, A Wholly Owned Subsidiary of the Unite Union says:

    Is there anything more hilarious than the spectacle of Ed Miliband on the news saying he’s disgusted by the Falkirk scandal and that he’s outraged by Unite. It’s fake posturing of the worst kind, aided and abetted by the bbc who are running with the “Labour at war with Unite” line as dictated by Labour HQ. You have to give credit to Cameron, his performance on Wednesday clearly hit home and has Labour terrified, hence their immediate panic fuelled damage limitation exercise to portray themselves as being at odds with Len McCluskey and gang. No one with any sense is buying it for a second. The most disgraceful ones in this episode are the bbc who are obediently spinning Labour’s fiction for them.

  87. 87

    Their pictures are in the local papers regularly. Their pictures are on the wall just inside the town hall. Their names and addresses, and pictures are on the web sites.

    The minutes are on the website.

    You have the option to vote out any you suspect, regularly. Most of the “PC *****” is done by the non-elected side of the council who you have no visual ability to watch over. The only visibility is the FOI but that is considered something to hide behind. FOI should be considered a failure of the council as they are under a duty to routinely publish their documents and actions.

    Obviously certain tasks like child welfare are not handled in public in the same way as a new shopping centre.

    Councils define their roles using documents like this one:


    It is all very public. I just want to protect those that try to get the councils to do the right thing, against the bullying by activist groups, and now Ministers and MPs.

    There should be no opportunity for bullying by either side.

    The obese bastards that merely lack any self-control are consuming an ever increasing proportion of NHS resources, with their grossly overloaded hip and knee joints etc. Doctors should just tell them to fuck off and come back if and when they’ve got back to a normal healthy weight.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
