Anston Parish Council Meeting 24th September

Anston Parish Council sinks deeper into its quagmire of incompetence, rudeness, bickering and despair.

Video from the meeting, Part one and Part two, apologies for the poor quality, I was a bit late and couldn’t set up properly!

Some high(low)lights;

1. The Council are installing their own system to record meetings, but it’s not quite finished.

2. Stuart Thornton is under investigation for various things as usual, for balance I would have to add the allegations are all from Labour Cllrs or their supporters. The local Police have told me that Labour party Cllrs have made statements against him despite not actually seeing the incident they were giving a statement about. Interesting…!

3. Cllr Burton will not be resigning despite spending quite a few years scrutinizing child protection in Rotherham.

4. Cllr St John likewise (he was a borough Cllr) and major at the time much of the abuse and trafficking was going on.

5. Many Cllrs stayed away from the meeting.

6. A local lady thinks the Anston Wells may be making children ill. I’ve been drinking it all my life and it’s never hurt me!

Anston Parish Council get a SPANKING!

Six of the best, trousers down.

Officers from the borough council’s standards board have delivered their damning findings.

Some of the highlights;

Dominic Beck was NOT present.

All Councillors have had a serious talking to and will be given training and guidance on how to conduct themselves.

Many Cllrs agree “they are crap” at dealing with the public.

Another meeting to be held on this in Dec or Jan.

Public asked to stop sending “trivial” complaints until the backlog is cleared, “trivial” meaning a Cllr was merely rude.

Cllrs agree to show more respect.

Chief Exec Martin Kimber has got involved and told officers to “sort it”

Chairman Ireland apologises for past actions.
