A couple of interesting things about this by-election up in North Wales. The first is the reason.
The Tri-Axis parties are always banging on about British National Party Councillors and making wild allegations about attendance records. Well they cannot use that one anymore.
The reason is that Conservative Councillor, Steven Woolfe resigned after claiming an estimated £20,000 in allowances, despite not attending a single council meeting since March.
The Manchester-born councillor won a by-election in March 2006 and pledged to help transform the Bay, which he claimed was perceived as dirty and unsafe.Having to update The Liars, Bugger and Thieves blog almost daily, it seems that there is something about the Lib/Lab/con parties that is some kind of super magnet to thieves, perverts and carpetbaggers. The people of Conwy deserve better but will only get better if they put their X alongside of John Oddy, the BNP candidate.
Cllr Woolfe is a member of the council’s audit committee as well as the environmental and community wellbeing scrutiny committees.
Fellow Colwyn Bay member Bob Squire was furious that much needed funds had lined Cllr Woolfe’s pockets while other projects went without.
“The money could have been used in the community, so much is required in that ward, there are lots of worthy causes,” he said. “There are an awful lot of problems and the money could be better spent.”
The other interesting thing are the comments made by Dhimmi Labour Councillor Chris Hughes who compares the British National Party to Nazis. He went on to say that the BNP had no place in politics. One wonders why then, why the Labour Party are not putting up a candidate to take on the BNP? Are Labour frightened or have they done a dodgy deal with the Conservatives and the Lib Dems in order to keep the BNP out?
Well it is going to be a tough fight, because word on the street is that the Lib Dems have been busing in people for the last few weeks and so we will see what we will see.
Good luck John. We know you will do your best and so will your team.
