exclusive: council leader iain malcolm reported for ballot rigging .. who knew about it and why was it covered up?

council Iain Malcolm

council Iain Malcolm was reproted to the police for ballot rigging by the town's MP Dr David Clark

A fortnight ago Mr Monkey exclusively published the findings of his in depth investigation into allegations of ballot rigging by South Tyneside’s Labour council leader, councillor Iain Malcolm.

Mr Monkey’s revelations confirmed what a handful of people already knew, and what many others suspected, councillor Iain Malcolm will stop at nothing to cling on to power, including rigging elections in his favour – in this case by deliberately destroying postal votes intended for other candidates. CLICK HERE to read Mr Monkey’s revealtions in full.

On 31st March, Mr Monkey posted a second article in which he revealed the dilemma faced by Tom and Mary Taylor. They’d witnessed councillor Iain Malcolm opening postal vote envelopes and destroying ballot papers intended for the Conservative, Pat Piggott. They agonised for months about whether or not they should tell anyone about what they’d seen before finally telling all.

Mr Monkey also revealed how Iain Malcolm was willing to sign off the local party’s accounts ‘on behalf’ of Tom Taylor (he was the party treasurer) without his knowledge or approval until Geraldine White (a then executive committee member) objected to councillor Malcolm’s proposals and suggested that she should visit Mr Taylor so that he could sign off the accounts in person.

TOM TAYLOR REVEALS ALL ..

True to her word Mrs White visited Mr and Mrs Taylor to discuss the annual accounts and during the course of the conversation Mrs White mentioned that councillor Iain Malcolm had proposed signing off the party’s accounts in his absence. This angered Mr Taylor who then proceeded to tell her what he and Mrs Taylor had witnessed Iain Malcolm do in their front room and explained in detail how Iaian Malcolm rigged the ballot to ensure the result went his way.

Mrs White, whose loyalty to the party was unflinching and who was “taken in” by Iain Malcolm couldn’t believe what she was hearing but knew that both Tom and Mary Taylor were extremeley honest and she had no reason to question their integrity.

It was now Mrs White’s turn to agonise over what to do next. Should she put loyalty to Iain Malcolm above loyalty to the party? She choose the latter.

SOUTH SHIELDS MP, DR DAVID CLARK TOLD ABOUT IAIN MALCOLM’S ELECTION FRAUD

Mrs White was aware that the then member of Parliament for South Shields, Dr David Clark was hoping to stand down at the 2001 local elections and that he’d been offered a life peerage and a seat in the House of Lords by Prime Minister Tony Blair. The only thing that was stopping him was his contempt for councillor Iain Malcolm who he blamed for splitting the local party into several factions and for the infighting that resulted.

He did’nt trust Iain Malcolm and believed that he was dishonest, had no integrity, was devious and had been corrupted by power.

But what worried him most was that Iain Malcolm was on the Parliamentary Panel and would be the person most likely to succeed him if he was to quit at the 2001 elections – something he was desperate to avoid.

In the meantime Mrs White decided to put the party first and contacted Dr David Clark and told him what she’d been told by Tom and Mary Taylor.

Dr David Clark asked Mrs White to arrange a meeting with Mr and Mrs Taylor as he was keen to hear for himself what they’d seen Iain Malcolm do. He also wanted to know more about the methods he’d used to ‘fix’ the election result. 

A meeting was hastily arranged at which both Mrs White and Dr Clark listened intently to what Tom and Mary Taylor had to say. Tom confirmed that he’d been asked (by Iain Malcolm) to collect completed postal vote envelopes from care homes and sheltered accommodation and that he’d witnessed Iain Malcolm open the envelopes before either destroying or resealing them depending on who the person had voted for.

Dr Clark asked them to keep this matter confidential and reminded them that this highly sensitive was potentially very damaging for the Labour party. He also asked them if they were prepared to make written statements to support what they’d seen. To Tom’s credit and in spite of his illness, he agreed to provide as much information as possible and help in any way he could.

After the meeting Dr Clark and Mrs White discussed the matter at length and agreed a course of action. Dr Clark said he needed to take advise and thought that the party should be investigate the matter. However, he was deeply concerned that both the local and regional Labour party had been infiltrated by supporters of Iain Malcolm and his employer Alan Donnelly, who at that time was a member of the European Parliament and had close links at the highest levels of the Labour party.

Dr Clark felt Iain Malcolm’s antics had major implications for the party especially in view of the party’s support for postal voting. He was also worried about the press getting hold of the information and the damage that this would causes the party, especially with a General Election looming. 

He was concerned that the matter would not be investigated seriously at a regional level and opted to tell senior officials at Millbank House, Labour’s national office in London. 

A senior party official was subsequently asked to initiate an investigation into the matter and within days Iain Malcolm had been removed from the Parliamentary Panel of possible election candidates which put paid to any hopes he had of replacing Dr Clark as the town’s MP. 

Iain Malcolm had played right into the hands of the Labour party’s hierarchy and he was solely responsible for his own deselection. His ballot rigging antics had cleared the way for someone else to be ‘parachuted in’ and it seems that the Prime Minster, Tony Blair just happened to have someone in mind.

POLICE ASKED TO INVESTIGATE

Having taken advise from Labour HQ, Dr Clark and Mrs White contacted the police and arranged to make a formal complaint about the incident. They also agreed to be interviewed and to make written statements.

They were asked to do this separately; Dr Clark attended Jarrow Police station and Mrs White attended South Shields Police station where she was interviewed by a senior police officer called Gallop.

The police agreed to carry out an investigation into the matter and Mr Monkey can confirm that councillor Iain Malcolm was subsequently arrested and interviewed under caution.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

About the same time, senior officials within the Labour party decided that they could not risk details of the incident or the subsequent investigation being made public as they felt it would harm their election prospects, especially in South Shields were the Prime Minister’s chosen candidate was about to contest the seat.

Without warning the police contacted both Dr Clark and Mrs White and advised them that no further action would be taken because the complaint had been made outside of the permitted time frame. They were dismayed by this sudden and unexpected decision and whilst they didn’t understand it, they accepted it.

Tom Taylor discussed the matter with Mrs White and expressed his concerns. He felt the party was deliberately attempting to cover the whole affair and in his opinion Iain Malcolm had got away with election fraud. Mrs White in turn sought advise from Millbank House and Dr Clark and was assured that the investigation was ongoing although the General Election would now take priority.

A full investigation was promised after the election but this never materialised.

Mr Monkey has carried out some additional research and can confirm that there is a time limit of 12 months in relation to election matters if complaints are brought under the Representation of the Peoples Act. But this complaint was about a crimes involving fraud and the interception and interference of mail and therefore should have been treated differently.

There are numerous examples of people being charged with crimes committed decades ago – CLICK HERE for details of the latest example.

TONY BLAIR EARMARKS SOUTH SHIELDS AS A SAFE SEAT FOR RISING STAR DAVID ‘BRAINS’ MILIBAND

Meanwhile in Downing Street, Prime Minister Tony Blair had recently hosted a garden party and had pulled one of his senior advisers and head of his Policy Unit to one side and asked him join him in Parliament. He told him that a General Election was imminent and that he’d earmarked a traditionally safe Labour seat for him in a place called South Shields. Apparently he also mentioned that there some issues within the local party that needed sorting out. He assured him that he’d have the help of the sitting MP, Dr David Clark and a handful of reliable party members.

This rising star was none other than David Miliband, affectionately known in Labour party circles as ‘brains’ and now the Foreign Secretary and member of Parliament for South Shields.

WHAT HAPPENED TO DR DAVID CLARK?

Sources close to Dr Clark have confirmed that he intended to stand down at the 2001 general elections but publicly he continued to deny it – that was until Iain Malcolm had been removed from the Parliamentary Panel and before the then Prime Minister, Tony Blair announced the date of the General Election.

Within days of the election announcement, Dr Clark confirmed that he would after all be standing down. This effectively allowed Labour’s National Executive Committee to ‘parachute in’ Tony Blair’s chosen candidate and rising star, David Miliband.

Shortly after Labour won the 2001 general election, Dr Clark was given a life peerage and became Baron Clark of Windemere. He was also made chairman of the Forestry Commission and he quickly disappeared off the local political scene.

WHAT NEXT?

This murky affair raises a number of serious issues and brings into question the integrity and honesty of the council leader, councillor Iain Malcolm.

In the 2000 local elections he cheated his way into office and surely from that moment on the public has a right to question the validity of his position – once a cheat always a cheat .

It’s time for him to stand aside whilst this matter is investigated and he should actively be encouraging the appropriate authorities to dig deep in an effort to clear his name – if you’ve got nothing to hide councillor Malcolm what are you afraid of?

If like Mr Monkey, you are appalled by this shameful act of betrayal contact the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police and ask him to investigate the matter on the grounds of public interest. At the same time you might also like to ask for an explanation as to why the original police investigation was hastily brought to an end.

The local media has a major role to play in exposing the fraud that is councillor Iain Malcolm for the benefit of the people of South Tyneside.

For months the Shields Gazette has been cynically manipulated by councillor Iain Malcolm and his minions in the press office. It’s time for the editor to make a stand on behalf of the people. Its time for the Shields Gazette to give this matter the priority it deserves and for the whole editorial team to put it’s weight behind the growing calls for a full and open investigation into this despicable act of betrayal by the borough’s most senior local political figure.

A MESSAGE TO COUNCILLOR IAIN MALCOLM

If you think things can’t get any worse, think again – Mr Monkey will shortly be publishing details of some of your other exploits including how you used a dead man’s details to join him up as a party member and how you and a handful of people illegally deselected numerous candidates by fixing the selection ballot results.

    Listen if the sisters Grimm have anything new to offer then take it all to the police, they will get laughed out of court, if it was 12 month too late back then well its nine years too late now tossers! You lot haven’t mellowed one little bit since you left the Labour Party, just remember who saved your skin back then eh?

    You kept it quiet back then, no principles or morals, no different now.

    Go rot.

    Some of what Wattery Bob says is true. Why didn’t ‘those in the know’ report this yonks ago? But what did they do? Kept it as ‘their little secret’.
    However, there is a charming part of UK law which is described as “date of discovery”. As huge numbers of members of the public are learning of the full details of this sordid affair for THE FIRST TIME, they have only “just” discovered it. As electorate, we all have a right to request police investigation into this issue – and we should as a civil duty.

    Mr Monkey – there are clearly other names in the periphery of this scandal. Name them all.

    We can all do something about all of them then!

    Those in the know back then kept secrets for a year or more in the party, they say they knew what was going on, no integrity. Will they go back to the police now? Will thay have anything new to say? Will they finger Mr. Monkey for his lies over the months? No, because they have no integrity. They now sit with a new party because they have no integrity. Will they clear the skeletons out of their own cupboard? No because they have no integrity.

    I don’t know who I trust less, the Tories or the nasty people in the Independents who cannot be bothered to turn up for meetings.

    Wattery Bob is living up to the old adage – when cornered come out fighting.

    The only problem is that he’s obviously fighting to protect his paymaster especially as Labour’s annual sweetie shop is imminent. But when he realises he’s got nowt he’ll tell his leader to stuff it and leave him to fight his own battles.

    Let’s face it, even Wattery Bob aint daft enough to share a cell with Miss Piggy.

    SCOOP OF THE YEAR!

  11. 11 vengeance is mine!!!
    09/04/2009 at 23:17

    Mr Momkey – at last, the whole sorry mess is coming out. Thankyou for risking all so that South Tyneside may be purged, at last, of the Malcolm family, for all share the same smelly pig pen.

    Sometimes, when I am thinking of vengeance, I look down from on high and into the Pub which Malcolm I calls “his local,” i.e. The Fountain Inn. Now, I ask myself, surely a local is just that, the pub where you live!!! So, Malcolm I, ought not you to be DISgracing the Simonside Arms, seeing as you do not live in Horsley Hill Ward? Certainly, you don’t do any “Councilloring” in “your” Wrad.

    But, stay! What do I see in Malcolm I’s local? Why, there’s melancholly Meeks – indeed, a man of few words, and less ideas of how to be a Councillor. And look, there’s Dix, dragging a chain of his misdeeds, just like in “Scrooge.” One of the misdeeds looks as if it’s called W-re-s —oh I see, Wares, with something about goods off the back of a van. What a naughty boy! Oh dear, he’s noticed an Asian Traffic Warden through the window. I do hope that the fists don’t fly.

    And look, there’s Leaske – sloshed on Vodka; and the Mad Monk, looking for some woman to bash senseless.
    There’s someone just coming in. – Why, it’s Podgy Potts, the CONSERVATIVE self-appointed Leader, coming to report to his Master Malcolm, and to find out what crumb he will be given from the Labour table. And goodness, there’s a man with great big teeth, pulling a green wheelie bin. He’s begging for Labour crumbsa as well. Isn’t it all too exciting!

    Now, who’s that who has just come in – she’s going over to Meeks, and kissing him ugh – revolting! But, strange, it’s not Joan. Wonder who it is. Is her name Victoria?

    And there, holding court is the fat, splodgy one himself, Ian, plotting to pull down more leaflets, put up on the walls of the pub by the Friends of Bamburgh School. Now why would he pull them down? He must be jealous of Bamburgh School’s successes.

    And look, he’s looking really melancholy as he reflects upon the psycophants under his control. He’s asking himself – who on earth am I going to put in next year’s Cabinet, and why do I have to be the leader of such damned fools!!! Oh, lord, can it be any worse in Durham prison?

  12. 12 The Insider
    10/04/2009 at 08:53

    Bob tells me that he supports the Friends of Bamburgh and that he’s letting them use the Fountain for their meetings.
    Malcolm and his stooges might want to swap watering holes as the next meeting is being arranged for a Friday. Is it a coincidence or a cunning strategy?

    Mr Monkey if I was to print off the details from your website and forward them to the MP Mr Hepburn, could I ask him to investigate this and place it before parliament ?
    Would the Standards Board investigate it or would they say it was to long ago ?

    This needs investigated but how ????

    “Insider,” your information is so welcome. Perhaps I’ll swoop down to have a peek! Incidentally, did you hear the rumour that the sage leader of education in the Borough, Jim Foreman, is going to have some unexpected opposition in his Ward at the May 2010 Local Election?

    Funny old world, isn’t it – talk about the unravelling of a sinister cabal!!!!!!
    Foreman himself may need to take advantage of some Special Education for his obvious Needs!!!! I wonder if he will require Borough-Wide investigation?

    Also, I do hear that it is possible to see down into Durham Prison’s exercise yard from the top of Durham Cathedral’s central tower. So, we will still be able to feed our eyes on the piggy maggot which calls itself Iain.

    Oh, and there’s another slimy creature who you might have mentioned, dear “Vengeance is Mine.” He’s a slug-like individual, wearing a green visor – I think that he’s called an Editor! And look, he’s begging Iain for a bite from his sausage roll. Oh my, this is really too much, I’m going to have to go. My heart is going thumpety, thump.

    I mean, there’s so much. It’ll be awful if the west of our decades of power are wevealed.

    “Wattery Bob,” why do you call yourself that? Is it because you are pissing yourself?

    Oh, Bob, you will help me won’t you? Iain will stand up for us won’t he?

    You know, all of us – his fwiendly sycophants who have helped him over his long period of lying, bullying, cheating and fraudery.

    Oh, dear, the Council Meetings are never going to be the same again.

    I’m a fwightened lickle piglet, and all I can do is scweem and scweem and scweem!
    I wish that I had been kicked out, like that nice Mr Waggott.

    Come to fink of it, all of our twoubles seem to date fwom Iain appointing himself our leader.
    Bob, Iain WILL give us his handouts at the next A.G.M., won’t he?

    Iain, my friend and student,
    I write to offer you strength at this time. It is only jealousy which makes people write in secret behind your back.

    Now, you have to be truly RUTHLESS.

    Who amongst your supporters is comforting you? Other than Wattery Bob, with his apparently wet trousers, (thanks, fwightened lickle piglet) I see no evidence that they are standing beside you in your valiant battle to rid South Tyneside of that almost unmentionable word – DEMOCRACY. It will soon be time for your A.G.M., when you will be able to reward those who have been good to you, (i.e. done all of your dirty work) and get rid of those who have spurned you, i.e. those who have asked questions.
    This year though, I’m afraid that you will have to spend billions and billions on sweeties. (Eileen knows all about billions and billions).

    Democracy is daft anyway – better the strong leadership of a tyranical dictator (sorry, I meant to write tinpot dictator). Voting is just a waste of time – something like that aberration they call consultation with the rabble (sorry, I meant your constituents).

    What you now need to do, my dear friend Iain, is to rid your council of voting altogether. Have Dix, the man you call your pet Neanderthal, rally earn his largesse from you by going around to break a few skulls. I did it on MY patch, and it does sort out the sycophants from the questioners.

    Sycophants are cool – questioners are an uneccesary nuisance – to be put into the same pit as those ballot boxes which you so cleverly rescued from the 2007 Beacon and Bents election. I mean, Audrey is of so much use to you isn’t she? She NEVER questions you (except behind your back). Can’t have her joining those nasty Indys, can we? {Just thought – she can’t be the wee chimp, can she?}

    Keep the faith, my dear disciple, and RULE. Give my regards to YOUR disciple McCabe (a.k.a. the Mad Monk, and Woman Basher).

    Being Council Leader would be such a good job, if it wasn’t for those wretched VOTERS.

    Onwards and down, down, downwards, into that lovely fiery HELL, the fires of which are fuelled (Eileen will be delighted to know) by lots and lots of VODKA.

    Ever yours,
    Robert

    10/04/2009 at 17:52

    We have just noticed that Rigg has posted a blog about the Indys. He states that elections must begin early now.
    In fact, we would say that the Indys are late this year, but better late than never.
    Strikes us that Rigg was kicked off the Council for, amongst other things, not getting himself around his electorate.

    A constant complaint used to be that Councillors were only seen during election week.

    Now, it’s well hello, the Indys are the only people who know why they were elected, which was to be in contact with the people whom they represent, finding out problems and informing them of their rights, and the latest developments.

    Can’t rely on Malcolm’s Fanzine anyway – load of old labour tosh!!!. Or is it still New Labour? Whatever it is, the Labour Party, Locally & Nationally, is being disgraced by the Malcolm brothers and their misdemeanours, together with a so-called editor who has sold the soul of his paper for a couple of sausage rolls!

    Don’t do it Miss Allen.

    Okay – I did say that about asking the community, but I didn’t mean it. The big man Iain carries a lot of weight you know, and there IS his Mafia around. I mean, just look at ‘em, led by that fearsome hit-man Bill Brady, together with Olive bringing up the rear with a glass of water……

    I was just succeeding in making the Malcolm brothers my friends – it would have been just like the old days with my chums the Krays.

    Have you been to Durham Jail recently. I don’t fancy it at all, and Big Iain says that I have to do my damndest to ensure that HE doesn’t get taken there.

  33. 33 An Open Letter to Graham Rigg
    11/04/2009 at 22:11

    (I’d have written this on your blog, but I know how unreliable you are at keeping identities secret.)

    Dear Graham Rigg,

    Why are you such a lowlife hypocrite? On your forum you write:

    “DO NOT under any circumstances repeat any allegations which may well be unfounded and untested in a court of law, particularly those concerning some of our local politicians which now appear on the Mr. Monkey blog.”

    Yet not only have you allowed an unfounded and untested comment on your blog from your sycophant claiming that Cllr Ahmed Khan is The Monkey, you’ve even commented on it.

    What sort of unprincipled, scummy hypocrite are you?

    I know you’re a man of questionable morals – after all, you believe that if you commit a crime and don’t get caught for nine years then all charges should be dropped.

    But even so, in future I’d stay away from politics, I don’t think it’s for you. All you seem to do is put your foot in it. You’re a laughing stock. The political elite all talk about Mr Monkey. You’re just a fucking irrelevance.

    Stick to photography, mate, but here’s a hint: Why not try photographing landscapes, the sea, animals, plants, or failing that, just some adults for a change.

    All you ever seem to be snapping away at is little kiddies.

    For anyone who is also wanting to ‘do something’ after reading what is frankly allegedly criminal behaviour by some of our potentially unelected councillors – can I suggest an email/letter to Conservative HQ in London, as well as the Standards Board for England?

    I hope such a scoop as this – and it’s certainly dynamite – silences once and for all the detractors of Mr Monkey’s site.
    I had been made aware of this story way back when it happened – in 2000. However, with no-one prepared to come forward it was impossible to progress.
    The favourite South Tyneside Labour Party saying is: “It didn’t come from me”.

    Hiya Monkey Man, having read your blog and all these comments I think it’s now time for action from “The common man”. We could force the local news and newspapers into action if we made a big fuss on the streets outside the Town Hall, or disrupted the AGM – but there has got to be enough of us! It isn’t about Political parties having an opportunity to wave their banners about, it’s about Joe Public making a stand together for honesty and fairness.
    Is everyone like me in thinking all Governments are corrupt? That it’s all about Power and lining their own pockets rather than actually doing the job they are meant to be doing! Come on, lets make a stand this time…. Lets actually DO SOMETHING.
    Can we not make the arrangements on this site to get folk off their arses and onto the street, one big show of strength?
    Or am I just going to be like everyone else, sick to death of people in power taking the p*ss out of me but too busy to do anything about it? Sitting here with a cup of tea typing this is easy…..letting Mr Monkey do all the risk taking and leg work rather that doing something about it myself.
    Sorry to do this to you Mr Monkey, but could you give us a date, time and place to MAKE A STAND?

  36. 36 Mr Kirr
    12/04/2009 at 08:57

    Mr Monkey, is it not to late to make a complaint and would the people you mention still stand by what is said?

  37. 37 Mr Monkey
    12/04/2009 at 13:05

    Apparently Labour stooge, Wattery Bob, left a comment on another blog and reckoned his comments wouldn’t be published on Mr Monkey’s Blog, time to eat your words Bobby boy?

  38. 38 Mr Monkey
    12/04/2009 at 13:16

    It’s not too late to make a complaint. The police are charging people for crimes committed decades ago on a regular basis as and when new evidence is available and I reckon the people mentioned would be more than willing to expose the ballot rigging leader of South Tyneside council, Iain Malcolm as a fraud and cheat that he is.

  40. 40 Mr Monkey
    12/04/2009 at 13:20

    You make some very interesting comments Banana Legs. Maybe it is time for the common man and woman to up the anti and put an end to the corruption that is the South Shields Labour party.
    Mr Monkey will give some thought to your suggestions.

  41. 41 Le Vieil Aigle
    12/04/2009 at 13:59

    Well, well, well, Banana Legs. You said it all in your penultimate paragraph.

    Why don’t YOU organise something – there ARE MANY who have already been working hard for a long time to bring about change. Chances HAVE been organised for you, so where have YOU been? Drinking too much tea is a no-no – it causes deaf eardrum syndrome!

    Your sentiment is quite right – but – as has often been said – we deserve the rulers which we ALLOW to be elected. Too many people are too bloody lazy.

    Did YOU help at the May 2008 Local Elections? Will you help in 2010?
    Or did you salve your conscience by saying, as above, that you “believe that all governments are corrupt.”

    Wake up, that’s what you have been programmed to think, so that you won’t bother to vote!

    Of course, given that the Gazette is under the control of Iain does mean that you are unable to read about what is really going on – except in something like this blog.

    So, Banana Legs, help YOURSELF, and your NEIGHBOURS, by MAKING A DATE, and publicising YOUR event. There are many, many people who also want action, but who are also too busy drinking tea. Given the opportunity, though, BY SOMEONE ELSE, they will begin to rally to the cause, SHOULD THEY HAVE THE CHANCE TO HEAR ABOUT IT.

    Already, the past actions of those already working for change are producing those “little green shoots” so beloved of our masters at Westminster.

    Iain Malcolm knows that people rarely get past the grumbling stage, and he is capitalising on that attitude keeping him in power!
    However, he is also a bully, and therefore a COWARD.

    So, I reckon that the MAXIMUM time he has left, is 2011! In a way, it is sad that Labour, nationally as well as locally, is fast unravelling. GO TO IT -YOU HELP! Malcolm is fast losing track of his evil shenanigans!!!!!!!!

    It’s a long road of attrition, friend Banana Legs. Gird your loins and jump into the pool! The water is really quite nice.

  42. 42 Mr Kirr
    12/04/2009 at 18:59

    Could I write to anybody in the Town Hall to ask them to investigate or would it be ignored?
    Would Mr Hepburn be able to ignore it if I asked him to investigate with evidence from your site?

    Could the polce be asked to release information about the arrest under the FOI ?

    Oooooh Wattery Bob – stop pissing about. You’re getting me even more fwightened. You aren’t helping Iain any by going off half-cock like that. I’m fwightened that you, me and Ian will be the wecipients of that wusty old wasp, when we’re in Durham Jail. Ooooh, what an owiginal mind you have, Wattery, full of such pewverse thoughts. You must be weally, weally clever!!!!!

    Ooooh Wattery, I do wish that that nasty Mr Monkey would change the photo of Iain. Those howid, stary eyes. They’re looking wight into me, and making me fwightened again, cos he looks as mad as mad can be. Wattery, I fink that he’s gone manic.
    Wattery, I know that you are being bombastic because you’re too fick (in spite of being so clever) to think up a good argument, and cos you have no other defence, but I’m sure you’re making it worse for us – and lovely Iain, who’s such a clever gwown-up fatty pig.

    Neither that kind and upwight Mr Wigg, nor that lovely, clever Councillor McCabe, would be best pleased at your language either, Wattery. They both stand for upholding Civic Dignity, and being cowect and wespectable – even to the Mayor and lovely Councillor Ed (who has a vewy short fuse.
    Your fwendship with Mr Wigg means that you should be wespectable like him – not like those nasty Indians evewyone talks about. And, Wattery, Councillor McCabe is a bully from the Isle of Skye, and he’ll hit us too, especially as I’m a lickle girl piglet!!!!

    I’m a weally, weally scaredy lickle piglet, Wattery, and you’re pissing down my leg, so you must be fwightened too!!!!

    Dear o dear Wattery Bob seems your conspiracy theory is just like you, a pile rotting dung.
    Now you’ve been humiliated you come out with this very predictable and frankly pathetic response. I didn’t intent to respond in kind because it’s Easter and it’s the one time a year I feel close to my faith.
    You might want to take a leaf out of my book and show respect and restraint in memory of what happened nearly 2000 years ago but then that would be going against the wishes of your leader who hates all religions but especially Catholicism, unless it helps him cheat his way to power.
    Seems our local MP is remaining very quiet about this affair, a bit like Pontius Pilot did. As for Iain Malcolm he’s a perfect Judas, a betrayer of trust, a man with no integrity or loyalty and a man who’ll do anything for a handfull of votes.

    You have a rather strange name, Wattery Bob, but I guess that your little friend Fwightened Piglet, was right when she said that Wattery was probably because you ARE pissing your pants in apprehension, and in anticipation, of the day when YOU will be put up alongside your crooked friend Iain for interrogation, and I DON’T WANT WEAK, ILLITERATE TURDS LIKE YOU SUPPORTING MY CAUSE!

    I’ve seen what happens to “tough” talkers like you who get a bit of the right treatment from people well-trained in interrogation. They piss and piss, and squeal and sqeal.
    NOT what your hero, AND MY PROPERTY, Iain wishes for.
    Wattery, you are a loser, and not good enough for the patronage of me, the great ruler, Robert Mugabe.

    Wattery, please but out. Iain is my prodigy – I trained him, and I make him act in any which way I desire – just so long as it is corrupt and self-gaining.

    Your stupidly crude language does you, Iain, and most importantly ME, NO GOOD AT ALL.

    Also, as Lickle Piglet remarks, Mr Rigg doesn’t like it either – he’s SOOOO UPRIGHT, and you are sooooo low. I’m sure that Mr Rigg will soon have more words of a high moral tone to write – can’t understand why he’s such a failure, with HIS wondrous abilities; I mean, mixing paint is such a SKILL!!!!

    Clear off Wattery, you’re not even welcome to a warm down here, nor a spot of Lil’s vodka!!!!!

    By the order of an angry Robert Mugabe, ruler of weaklings like you and Iain.

    On behalf of the South Tyneside Independent Alliance group of councillors I would like to apologise to Curly for the unwarranted misconception that we think he is up to no good when using a camera. When spreading slurs and smears we intend to target only our elected politicians such as Iain Malcolm and Podgy Potts and not the general members of the public who only wish to express opinions, even if we disagree about them.

    I will be telephoning my colleague shortly to have the offending remark removed.

I have emailed Mr. Rigg directly but I would appreciate a public airing of my apology and once again ask for the dreadful comments re his photography to be removed.

    You do not have to go back nine years to see how Labour will cheat to keep their seats at the local elections in South Tyneside. I am a member of the BNP and have been active in supporting the candidate in my ward of Primrose in the last two local elections. In 2007 we suspected that an attempt would be made to open the ballot boxes before they reached the count at Jarrow Community Centre and BNP votes removed from the boxes, we fitted seals as was our right on all the ballot boxes in my ward after the poll had closed. When the boxes arrived at the count, one of them from the largest polling station in the ward had the seals broken.We asked for the count to be stopped and the police called, they attended and basically did nothing, saying they would look at it later with the result that nothing was ever done about it.
    Last year in 2008 the pile of votes for the Labour candidate and the BNP looked to be very close and we knew the result would be determined by the postal votes that had been opened and checked at Temple Park Leisure Centre. These votes did not arrive at the count till after midnight, over three hours after polls had closed. No explanation was given about the delay and surprise, surprise when the votes were counted it appeared that the BNP had only about 10% of the postal vote instead of the approx 50% that we had achieved at the polling stations. We complained to the adjudicator but as usual nothing was ever done about this suspected cheating.

  61. 61 The Insider
    14/04/2009 at 07:41

    The problem Jarrow Pete is that the police don’t know what to do when it comes to election issues.
    What tends to happen is that there is a single dedicated officer in the Northumbria Police force who is responsible for election matters. He/she doesn’t get involved until complaints are received from a local level. This only happens if the local police officer attending has any knowledge or interest in election law, inevitably he/she hasn’t and is only doing the job locally because they have been press ganged into it.
    These local officers don’t investigate election irregularities, the simply attend an incident make a report and take statements if necessary and pass them to the dedicated officer.
    If you suspect wrong doing at the next election call the organ grinder and not the monkey. You can get his/her details from the returning officer.

  62. 62 Mr Mc Atom

    Mr Monkey is surprised that some comments contained in ‘The Open Letter’ have offended the libertarian principles of a local blogger and amateur photographer.

    The comments don’t make any accusations, they simply offer the following advice:

    “Stick to photography, mate, but here’s a hint: Why not try photographing landscapes, the sea, animals, plants, or failing that, just some adults for a change. All you ever seem to be snapping away at is little kiddies”.

    And as if to prove a point the blogger took another picture of a child on play equipment in a local park and published it on his blog as part of some bizarre quiz.

    Mr Monkey wonders whether he had the parent’s permission to take the picture or was he relying on the public place rule?

    Oh well done Mr.Monkey, you go and repeat the insinuation. Curly’s picture did not even show the lad’s face and who are we to know whether or not he asked for permission, the vast majority of his pictures on his other site just show life how it is in South Shields and portray a good picture of the town. When was the last time you gave a positive picture of South Tyneside?

    You know what that comment was meant to portray, would you be happy for someone to make that remark about you? Be a man and delete it, along with your own rejoinder. Besides I thought you were in the game of winning votes for your Indy pals and bad mouthing the Labour party, now you think it’s OK to demean the reputation of a chap with a camera – what a nice bunch you are.

    I doubt that your comments will prevent Curly from carrying on as normal,and a word to Alice Cooper, Mr. Monkey makes most of the comments himself with a little help from one or two of his councillor friends, they just change the names every now and then, hadn’t you noticed.

You cannot do it because you’ve told too many lies in the past and you’d be fingered for your misdeeds, that’s why you’d like to see someone else do your dirty work – feckin’ coward.

    Not content with slingin’ mud at the councillors involved in an election nine years ago, you also think it’s fair to sling mud at a bloke who had nothing at all to do with it, a photographer who has a blog, he was elected nearly thirty years ago, but because he takes pictures he’s still fair game to the twat Monkey.

    You don’t have any shame you bastard, what must his poor wife and kids feel when they hear about this? Get rid of those comments you worm infested arsehole and stick to what you think you do best.

    looks like mr monkey is a complete fuckwit of the highest order, he reckons his statement concerning a certain blogger/photographer is not an accusation……

    read it again monkeyfucker…….

    “Stick to photography, mate, but here’s a hint: Why not try photographing landscapes, the sea, animals, plants, or failing that, just some adults for a change. All you ever seem to be snapping away at is little kiddies”.”

    if i was the photographer/blogger that you are defaming, i would be quite happy to do one of two things..

    the first and legal thing would be to sue you for every penny you’ve got, and make no mistake dear fuckwit, you would lose….

    the second and not so legal option, would be to kick your balls until your nose bleeds, but the possibility of you having any balls is remote, so perhaps a few short lengths of razor wire inserted through a pvc pipe into your arse would be in order, but then again you might enjoy that too much……..

    stick to pissing on politicians dickhead, cos’ spreading false innuendo about innocent people

    Using foul and barely literate language serves only to weaken an argument.

    The English language is so rich and diverse, that it is possible to make insurmountable arguments about any situation.

    So much Anglo-Saxon, madmarvin, merely shows up the writer as a dimwit lacking a valid argument, and causes the reader to turn off anyway.

    Quite simply, the oft repeated pattern of a limited vocabulary of offensive words becomes so boring! Consequently, you throw away the impact and value of any argument which you make, so you are simply wasting your time, and showing up your ignorance!

    yeh right, thats just a bullshit arguement put up by dense pricks like you when you cant put up a decent arguement in response to my words, so i swear, who gives a fuck ?
    get over yourself you wanker.

    and instead of acting like a little bitch. put up an argument as to why MY argument is supposedly invalid regardless of expletives….

    monkey, i also noticed that your name was not on the “open letter”, but when you repeated it in another post saying there was nothing wrong with it, that puts you in the spotlight for what was said, and i believe you wrote the original “open letter”, because after i told you all the nasty horrible things i would do to someone if they had said that crap to me, you made no immediate corrections such as telling me that, “your name was not written as the original poster” but here you are 20 odd hours later pointing out that fact to another poster, it took you that long to think of a way to try and cover your arse….

    and even if im wrong, you still condoned what was said, and what was said is an insult/accusation that no man should have to put up with when there is no evidence whatsoever,
    if someone intimated that i was a kiddie fiddler, as i said earlier, i would kick their balls until their nose bled….

    what was said about the photographer/blogger was way out of order, that’s my only beef here…

    as for you outing politicians, well done if you have irrefutable proof, cos’ i hate politicians with a passion.

    The flea bitten ape even has the cheek to use one of Curly’s pictures, can you believe it? Did he give his permission Mr. Monkey?
    Did you find it hard looking through those thousands of piccies of kiddies to find two grown ups?

    What a hypocritical tosspot you are.

    i wouldnt bother mr cooper, baden obviously has a weird fixation on men, he fantasises about them as little girls, his whole bedroom is probably plastered with boy george pictures, and he’s probably into construction men as well, so i guess that joke i told would be a good tip for him.

    now that he knows how to turn himself into a water level, he’ll be walking all the construction sites in high heels asking if he can hold the engineers plumb-bob.

    mr monkey……

    no reply to my last reply about your replies ?
    hope that’s not too confusing for you….

    no denials about my view that you wrote “the open letter” ?

    your silence speaks volumes, you should apologise before you get sued.

    What sort of unprincipled, scummy hypocrite are you?

    I know you’re a man of questionable morals – after all, you believe that if you commit a crime and don’t get caught for nine years then all charges should be dropped.

    But even so, in future I’d stay away from politics, I don’t think it’s for you. All you seem to do is put your foot in it. You’re a laughing stock. The political elite all talk about Mr Monkey. You’re just a fucking irrelevance.

    Stick to photography, mate, but here’s a hint: Why not try photographing landscapes, the sea, animals, plants, or failing that, just some adults for a change.

    All you ever seem to be snapping away at is little kiddies.-by Monkey

    You may have had some earlier clash with Curly at some time, I wouldn’t know, but why not keep to the topic instead of making unwarranted personal attacks?
    I often look at curly’s photo of the day website and as far as I am concerned, he is a talented photographer and a real ambassador for Sth Shields. Most of his photos are of his local area, scenery, the sea, all the things you mentioned. The photos are often brilliant. He has talent.
    No matter what your argument with him, to imply he is a paedophile (Do you HONESTLY think he is?)on an open website, in an attempt to make local people doubtful about him, is extremely immoral.
    And make no mistake, that is exactly what you HAVE done.eg ‘questionable morals…. little kiddies” etc
    If you have evidence he is, then go to the police.
    If you have no evidence, you owe him an apology.
    Insinuating someone is a local paedophile is low.
    Do you realise you can wreck someone’s whole life with those sorts of unfounded allegations?

    Have some integrity.
    And please, don’t come back with, “But he started this first…”

    An Open Letter to Graham Rigg
    How can anybody be allowed to get away with posting this letter….it is disgusting,and i would certainly take action against the person who posted it…what right has this person to post lies and degrade a Man and his work.

    Dear little chubby cheeks marvina,

    I see that, after having worked hard to refrain from your infantile foulness, you have now sadly reverted to type.
    However, whether coarse or not, you really are much too immature and MUCH TOO BORING.

    Sorry Mr Cooper and Jimmy, it is said that there is good in even the worst of cases, but sadly, I guess that marvina, that coarse little mite, is beyond redemption.

    My work, therefore is now complete.

    We must now concentrate on the important things of life, which include the further bringing to account of Council Leader Iain Malcolm and his rotten gang.

    Enjoy
    Baden

    baden, i get the impression that you wouldn’t work in an iron bloody lung, as for immaturity, what can i say ??

    you rubbed off on me, ive been laid out with flu for nearly two weeks and my mind is not as sharp as it should be, (what’s your excuse) and apart from that, there is only so much that i can say to your inane dribble, clever comebacks are almost an impossibility when one is given nothing to work with by unimaginative turds like you, and i was bored with you long before you got bored with posting your crap…

    so if you want to be serious, then answer my request from the first reply i wrote to you….

    ——————–
    “and instead of acting like a little bitch. put up an argument as to why MY argument is supposedly invalid regardless of expletives….”
    ——————–

    in other words, show proof that expletives can change a fact…..

    either put up, or shut the fuck up you stupid little snot nosed wanker, you should try correcting people in a pub like the way you tried to correct me in your first reply, see how far you can fall.

    An Open Letter to Graham Rigg ????????
    I am disgusted that somebody can get away with writing that..to degrade a man and his line of work in this manner is unforgivable.I myself would take this matter further.
    Family and freinds of Curly know he is a genuine person and he has produced some fantastic photos of this town and the people in it..
    To post that letter and insult a man like that ,should not be allowed,i hope the person that wrote it gets his comupance.

    hello anna, theres another thread where my replies haven’t been published, its the thread where monkey arse had the insane idea giving it the heading “curly suspected of pedophilia”, all it takes is one person who is just as stupid as monkey to read the title and take it at face value “without” reading the news link that explains that curly is not a kiddy fiddler…

    i pointed out to arse face monkey that he should change the title because it could prove physically harmful to curly, but as i said, i wasn’t published, and i cant be bothered seeing if i can post in there again, monkey can play his own silly games, but if i was curly, I’d have the law onto this monkey prick, while monkey doesn’t actually accuse curly, the title can still cause trouble…..

    ——————————-

    hello librarian, i might be upping monkeys comment count, but at least the comments show up him and one the other posters for the dumb fucks that they really are, and neither of them have answered my questions to them, that’s because the dumb pricks know they have already lost.

  132. 01/03/2012 at 15:51
