Rocke's Community Council Manifesto

Hello all

You may have noticed that Rocke's Community Council manifesto, together with a subsequent message again from Rocke, have been removed from the forum.

This is due to requests from Graham Bartlett and Stephen Key, both of whom you might know in relation to their roles on the Community Council.

I have, out of courtesy, informed Rocke prior to the thread's removal.

Thanks Admin for the courtesy of discussing this with me.

This forum's ability to allow people to express their views cannot be compromised, and I believe that you have done the right thing in withdrawing the manifesto in the light of comments and complaints made by people with a vested inrterest in the Community Council of Abertillery & Llanhilleth.

However, I am confident that IF the complaints are made to the proper authorities they will be deemed unjustified, in the same way that complaints to the Ombudsman about me have.

I will therefore, in the spirit of openness that I abide by, publish all correspondence I receive on the matter. If no complaint is made I will of course publish that fact, thereby showing Messrs Bartlett's and Key's submission to you to be nothing more than an attempt to stiffle oposition prior to an election. Mr Bartlett of course, being an officer of the 'town council' shouldn't be involving himself in electoral matters.

*Please note edit to correct misspelling

Guess what ?

Yes - NO contact from any official regarding the manifesto.

NO INVESTIGATION WHATSOEVER.

Messrs Bartlett ( Clerk and Section 151 Financial Officer, responsible for ensuring the correct and proper use of the Council's financial resources ) and Key ( Community Councillor, responsible for ensuring the correct and proper use of the Council's financial resources ) have not followed through with their threat.

What's next - a 'super injunction' like Ryan Giggs?

I still support admin's stance because I appreciate the risk.

However, there'll be posters put up everywhere I can get.
Let's see if I'm sued for libel.
Rocke

Another day gone, another day closer to the microscope for Community Council workings.
Rocke

Counting the hours now.

Anyone want any more little gems I've deduced or inferrred from the Community Council's Accounts ?
