SEFTON’S TORY JOKERS – Are they really worth what we pay them? January 25th, 2015 jmr jmr Latest News Shares Comments By Tom Duffy Two Tory Councillors in Woodvale and the place ‘still’ looks like a bomb’s hit it. Don’t call us, we’ll call you! Ainsdale has Two Tory Councillors (Ted Hartill and Terry Jones) in Woodvale and the area on Sandbrook Way/Road still looks like a bombed out ghetto. Lots of hollow political promises of improvement over the years since, invisible to residents, Hartill and Jones were elected but these two unresponsive politicians have seemingly let the area go to the dogs. IMPROVEMENT BLOCKERS Calls for improvement to benefit elderly residents in the Woodvale area have also been outrageously BLOCKED by the Tory duo, apparently because such proposals were NOT their idea in the first place. http://www.otsnews.co.uk/woodvales-area-of-shame-southport/ Tory Leader, Cllr Jones, is noticeable to many residents by his nonattendance in the area and Cllr Hartill is usually to be found abroad on his regular sunny holidays. As they say – ‘great work, if you can get it!’ DEAF DUMB AND BLIND SOUTHPORT PRESS AND SEFTON COUNCIL The Ted and Terry, spin – fuelled, Election machine is due to roll on but the facts behind this ongoing fiasco are becoming clearer each passing week. The Tory action claims, as opposed to the authentic facts, are a matter of smoke and mirrors. The Southport media and also Sefton Council (under Council chief, Margaret Carney) have also been made fully aware of the poor conduct of these two inactive politicians, on various issues, but apparently decided for some inexplicable reason to turn a blind eye and remain silent! The result is that the trusting public remain in the dark! SEFTON COUNCIL APATHY AND BIASED SUPPORT FOR TORY POLITICIAN Cllr Ted Hartill (who is also a chairman of the WACA charity) was also highlighted on OTS News some time ago, following complaints about his questionable activities, which were duly ‘ignored’ by Margaret Carney and her subservient Sefton Council officers. http://www.otsnews.co.uk/facts-not-fiction-over-the-misleading-southport-waca-statement/ Regrettably, a few residents have sought to highlight the facts behind these politicians and been threatened for their fearless efforts. http://www.otsnews.co.uk/southports-tories-and-their-traditionally-threatening-ways/ SECRET TAPES? Tory Leader, Cllr Jones, has also (according to previous claims) apparently made secret phone tapes of his dealings with Southport residents that are somewhat ‘questionable’, to say the least! Thankfully, websites like OTS News have the aptitude (and courage) to keep Sandgrounders up it speed with the real local news and are not suffering under biased misapprehensions, editorial anxiety or hidden political prejudice, like the local regular media are. Farther Afield the latest Tory wannabe Southport MP, Preston councillor/Asda shop manager Damien Moore, is delivering his version of events in Southport with the assistance of his ‘out-of-town’ colleagues and ex-councillor Glover. Amazing how folks who do not even live in Southport want us to vote for their political spin. Mr Glover was recently also involved in ‘another’ car accident. http://www.otsnews.co.uk/thomas-glover-o-b-e-involved-in-rtc-houghton-street-southport/ In 2009 the press reported that Tom Glover, OBE, received enough penalty points to trigger a six-month ban after hitting schoolboy Adam Howard outside a Southport school. Glover received five penalty points for clipping the youngster and failing to stop for lollipop lady Betty Oxley close to Churchtown Primary School. SHAMED TORY PORNO COUNCILLOR – WILL HE STAND AGAIN? The Blundellsands ward Tory representative, ex-mayor; Cllr Peter Papworth was previously in hot water for watching pornography on a council laptop. In a statement Papworth a member of the council since 1973, admitted he had “behaved unwisely” and said the matter was “a big embarrassment”. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-29465391 Will ‘Porno Pete’ be standing for election when his time comes around once again? http://modgov.sefton.gov.uk/moderngov/mgUserInfo.aspx?UID=146 The above articles remain not as opinions but real facts that can be proven. Residents may (like the Southport press and council) bury their heads in the sand or access the truth for themselves. Nevertheless, the above political hopefuls with soon be knocking on YOUR doors for YOUR votes! Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
