THE FEAR OF GOD

Our progress must be frightening the Labour group on Wigan Metro judging by the letter below which was forwarded to me by Richard Bean of the Wigan Evening Post asking for my comments. I have to commend Mr Ellis for his democratic actions in raising this perversion of democracy, even though there may be an ulterior motive for his actions as he represents the Community Action Party still led I believe by ex Councillor Franzen (aka "the horrible")
This party contains some good people albeit somewhat devoid of meaty political beliefs but good at maintaining flower beds, bus shelters and bringing complaints about litter and dog mess to the authorities.
These functions are useful in their own way but are hardly relevant in the larger sphere of things. However I still salute Mr Ellis for his democratic act in writing the letter, unlike his leader ("the horrible") who associates with claw hammer wielding thugs.
I responded as follows.
Dear Mr Bean,
I had not heard about this but I congratulate Mr Ellis on his stand for democracy and the proper use of council facilities and resources.
I understand and am pleased about the Labour group's concern over our progress. They have only themselves to blame for their incompetence and betrayal of the Wigan people.. The Tories and Lib Dems are no better and as we get our message more widely distributed (in spite of the efforts of your paper) our support is increasing exponentially.
In a democratic society ALL views are of equal validity, but for the Labour group to take advantage of their majority to, as Mr Ellis says use facilities, some of which we have contributed to in our council taxes is undemocratic.
If they want to campaign they should pay for it, we pay for ours. After all they have enough foreign millionaires to support their Labour and Tory parties to render the use of council resources unnecessary and indeed theft.
I would advise them to take care as the boot could soon be on the other foot if the new enquiries about our party are anything to go by and the loony Left (and Right)could reap the rewards of their misrule.
Yours sincerely,
For the Labour group on the council to be considering holding special meetings to counter our growth shows how far we have come in only a few years.
The underhand tactics they employ to counter our threat we have become accustomed to, but we must be wary as with a wounded bear they could lash out in unpredictable ways to prevent themselves being anhilated. We know the police and union bosses (not the rank and file members)are using these undemocratic tactics against us as is the Tory sponsored UAF but we are aware of them and believe in all societies the will of the people eventually prevails.
It will be interesting to see if my letter is published and if so, edited.

It would be interesting to see what the 'attached' letter to the councillors actually said?

Anyway, it's an intriguing development Lanky! I wonder what tactics they could possibly use to deter more and more of the people of our borough from joining us?

Until they get their own house in order we will continue to reap the rewards of their countless failures of not supporting those that give the most!

But, being a rather cynical character in political terms I wonder if Mr Ellis is working alone here and what would 'fuhrer' Franzen have to say on the matter of one of his councillors actually sticking up for a political party that he himself loathes with a hammering passion?

That said, It's a positive step forward to be "copied in" in this dialogue between the local paper and a local councillor.

Maybe, a Freedom of Information 2000 Act request can be submitted to Mr Turner to find out for what the actually costs were for this bullying session and who indeed attended and if any outside organisations were present or invited into the council chambers at our exspense for this exercise!

I've got the copy of the letter LLN but I did not put it on as it is a poor one and difficult to read.

Council Meeting Wednesday 15th July, 2009

(2) Councillor G Wilkes submitted the following motion which was seconded by Councillor R T Splaine:

This Council views with grave concern the implications of the amount of people in the Borough that voted BNP in the European Parliamentary elections that took place on Thursday, 4 June 2009.

We, as a Council, must pledge to the people of this Borough, that we will work harder to try to promote the values of equality and community cohesion and oppose racist policies in Wigan and Leigh.

If this is to work successfully all party leaders that support these values must pledge to put their differences to one side and fight those who may act like a wolf in sheep's clothing in working against these values.

The Executive Leader (Councillor P R C Smith) moved the following amendment, which was seconded by Councillor D T Molyneux:-

This Council views with grave concern the implications of the amount of people in the Borough that voted BNP in the European Parliamentary elections that took place on Thursday, 4 June 2009.

We, as a Council and individual Councillors, must pledge to the people of this Borough that we will work harder to understand their concerns and support policies that promote jobs, better housing and fairness for all.

If this is to work successfully all party leaders that support these values must pledge to put their differences to one side and fight those who may act like a wolf in sheep's clothing in working against these values.

Councillor G Wilkes accepted the amendment to the original motion, however he would have wished to retain the words ‘oppose racist policies.’

Councillor D T Molyneux supported by 10 Members, asked for a recorded vote to be taken, indicating the names for and against the amended motion or abstaining from voting.

On the amended motion being put to the vote, the Mayor declared it carried and it was:-

Resolved: This Council views with grave concern the implications of the amount of people in the Borough that voted BNP in the European Parliamentary elections that took place on Thursday, 4 June 2009.

We, as a Council and individual Councillors, must pledge to the people of this Borough that we will work harder to understand their concerns and support policies that promote jobs, better housing and fairness for all

If this is to work successfully all party leaders that support these values must pledge to put their differences to one side and fight those who may act like a wolf in sheep's clothing in working against these values
