Tomorrow’s full council meeting will be an interesting one, all eyes will be on who Carol Dean will be putting on her cabinet.

If any of the golden oldies are on there I’d say that was a definite bribe to get them to stand again, and will we see the likes of Lee Wood get snubbed for Lewis Smith (with wood serving longer than Smith). Will also be interesting to see if any of the young loud mouth newbies will get a straight up promotion.

Either way I feel some noses will be out of joint, whether they have the guts to show it remains to be seen.

[Debunking Response: We believe Nova Arkney has actually had a quick promotion to Cabinet. Lee Wood has not made it there.]

Can anyone tell me if Cllr Kingston s social media page has been taken down? I do enjoy seeing his comments and responding to some of them, however it seems to be non-existent. Or have I been blocked by him, as I was by his oppo briefly, for offering some alternate views?

I cannot help thinking it’s debunking’s fault, maybe I should not have recommended to his readers they read some other truths.

Never mind, the truth is out there.

[Debunking Response: The travesty! You appear to have been blocked. We have seen your efforts to spread truth, and we thank you for your brave service to us.]

Can someone tell Sarah Edwards that the Staffordshire hoard was found in 2009 so everyone in Tamworth knows by now its at Tamworth castle, she’d know this if she’d been in Tamworth longer than 5 minutes.

Plus I take it she couldn’t actually be bothered to go see it.

Should start calling her half a job Edwards.

Ron Brown – Speechless or high on laughing gas.

I sometimes observe posts in the examiner not that much goes on apart from a few old men with too much time on their hands slagging off the council and the Tories.

However this caught my eye. A question from a person and a perfectly acceptable answer. But Ron just laughs. If he is on laughing gas can I have some? Or most likely he is still an ignorant troll.

(It seems I can only upload one file but if you go to the post and look at Stuarts comment you will see the rest)

Now that Lord Brindley of Trolldom has rubbed shoulders (in his imagination) with King Charles (bet the royal guard made sure he wasn’t anywhere near him due to poss catching something from the bald one in his pink shoes) here’s a suggestion

Why don’t we make Brina Lord Mayor of Tamworth and he can work his magic on the town and use his spotted sites for good instead of causing trouble, peace not hate, positivity instead of Brina Brine

Actually, I apologise I’ve just had a re-think on that idea! I’d rather nail my bits to a copper drain pipe in a storm and let God give me a good shock in my plums!

Flower Power

Some of us are old enough to remember when Labour were last in power, the town looked dreadful and colourless. They didn’t plant any flowers in the castle grounds to save a few penny and it was a sad sight.

Kingstone’s Got Their Goat

I read with interest that the Conservative association is in secret talks under the shadow of the goat with a view to Kingstone being reinstated as a member of the Conservative Party.

Under Troll Pressure

I was doing a bit of work earlier and had to look at Labour List (urgh!) and it appears that Tamworth still doesn’t have a Labour confirmed PPC.

We need the troll to start putting pressure on Sarah Edwards to confirm if she will be our candidate or not at the General Election. Surely we can’t be abandoned again by a sitting MP because they want more glory (holes!).

Mayor Of A Time

So it’s the time of the year that Tamworth gets a new Mayor…generally the controlling group gets to pick the person they want, so who will take over from John Harper…. My thoughts are it will be one of the old guard Labour have brought in…so, Norchi, Couchman or Foster…or will Dick Kingstone be trying to impress his friends on the square to nominate him.?

I do find it disappointing that Ken has returned having been made Alderman….a title bestowed on long serving Cllr’s after completing their time in office.

It also is the time when Cabinet and committee Chairs are decided. Again the power is in Labour’s hands and will they choose wisely I wonder?
Leader and deputy will be Dean and Bain which is a worry as either of them couldn’t be a good chair in a dining room suite.

So, four or five cabinet positions to be decided on top of that…Will they give the young guns of the Labour group a run out? Or pack it with the oldies? I suspect a slight mix, but I doubt the capable Sarah Daniels will get a look in.

It also leaves the Chairs and vice Chairs of committees such as planning and a scrutiny to be decided…the number of members suggest some newly elected Cllr’s with no experience will get some sort of position – how wonderful will that be……
The Annual Mayor Making ceremony is pencilled in for the 21st May and usually gets an interesting bunch of observers. I may go!

[Debunking Response: We might too!]

Independents Not All That Bad

While I agree with a lot of what you say, and very much like your website, I do disagree with some of your latest post.

Good independent people who don’t want to conform to any party you can indeed get, remember the Dr who became MP in Kidderminster I think.

Being independent at a local level is in my opinion a good thing, it gives you a chance to take each decision and vote accordingly in the best interests of those you represent and the town you represent. At the very least at a local level the political parties should do away with a whip, that shouldn’t be needed at a local level. Why not have more local parties/residents associations and take the national element out of local politics?

That said I agree we are stuck in a 2 party system. Many people don’t vote, many more will never vote for the winning candidate, and some vote a certain way for tactical reasons due to our First Past The Post Political System. For every vote to matter we need proportional representation, maybe turnout would even increase, and everyone could vote for who they want to win, not who they know can beat the person they don’t want to win!

Any thoughts?

[Debunking Response: Unfortunately while it sounds great that Independents can vote for what they think is best, that vote goes nowhere. It gets drowned out by groups that have discussed the best way forward between them to take the action they feel best and can actually make it happen. People vote for other people to get on and lead, local government is slow enough without decisions taking an age to agree on. Watch the first Tamworth Council meeting of May last year to see that chaos in action. It’s a myth that you have to ‘conform’ within a political party, at least so we are told regarding the Tories. You are apparently allowed your own voice, it’s rare you see that in Labour Councillors. If any party is whipped on a decision it has to be declared. Again what we know of the Tory side is that it is used for internal issues only, not policy.]

Act Stable

Jazz is another one who has been Tory, Labour and everything in between. Sometimes politics attracts the egos.

Carol Dean is not on the way out, they will grin and back her for a good long while. Better to play act stability.

Now that local Labour can no longer sit quiet on the benches at full council meetings, it should get more interesting. I just hope we hear fewer wittering from Councillor’s Bain and Adams and more from the Clarkes.

Will Labour hit the ground running and set an opening date for a ‘listening’ Council front desk? Will they be working their butts off to keep the In Bloom winning streaks going, promoting Tamworth as a tourist destination? Will they fix all those potholes they somehow promised to resolve? And install fly tipping cams in every green space, terraced street and underpass? Probably not!

Hoping there won’t be debates about their usual topics of bin placement, damp around council house windows and cancelling big events.

Time will tell!

Hope Kingstone doesn’t become Mayor. He thinks he has it in the bag again. The only allowance he didn’t want to challenge.

Cllr Daniels so community minded and actually attends civic events so would make a very cheery active mayor with a bright, young upstart like Cllr Smith for deputy.

Two years until the next TBC election. Hope the Tories counted up how much money was left before they handed it all over!

Let’s Not Forget

Paul Brindley may have a lot to answer for, he may be a twat, a knob, mental ill and much more but let’s not forget the other man who has a big part to play in what happened yesterday…..Cllr Richard Kingstone who calls himself an upstanding member of the Tamworth community.

His morals leave a lot to be desired, he set out to make at least one amazing Cllr lose his seat. He stabbed people who once classed him as a friend/colleague in the back and didn’t look back.

His actions were disgraceful, disgusting and damn right dishonest. For someone who feared a Labour run town he switched sides quicker than Brina at an all male brothel all in the name of taken a good Cllrs county seat next year. Corruption at its finest with that Richard.

I hope the conservatives come back fight hard and in the mean time show Labour up for the clueless clowns they are in the chamber.

[Debunking Response: Nicely put. Not many people see through the fake respectable veneer of Kingstone. Nobody really calls him out either, especially those Tories he’s friends with. Although he blocks dissenting views on his Facebook page. We don’t think Tories will need to show Labour up, they will do it themselves. People at least will be able to watch it happen this time.]

Instead he carries on trolling on his pages trying feed his own narcissistic ways and bully other people like the true coward he is. If you had truths to tell Brina like you keep saying you would have published them long before now.

Greatest Hits Achievements

Anything to remind us about the previous achievements of these retired but returned Labour councillors? Looking forward to seeing how the new Labour rulers will feel about Kingstone’s proposals to take allowances away. If the recent locals showed anything it was clear – vote indy get Labour!

Regular Trolling Will Resume Normally

So with Labour now in does this mean Brina (local troll, failed businessman, so deep in the closet he thinks he is straight) will take a holiday for a bit as he has no tories to attack. Or will he concentrate on Trinity’s new Cllr.
