exclusive: tory councillor David Potts gets almost £1,200 for every council meeting he attends

'No wonder the bastard's smiling, he can afford an escort when he gets £1,176 for every council meeting he attends'

'No wonder the bastard's smiling, he can afford an escort when he gets £1,176 for every council meeting he attends'

Mr Monkey would like to thank the other local blogger for drawing his attention to the attendances of certain councillors.

He seems to have selectively singled out the poor attendance record of councillor Allen Branley, the not quite as bad record of councillor Jane Branley and the “ever present” records of councillor Victor Thompson and Ahmed Khan.

So Mr Monkey thought he’d take a closer look at the Hobbit’s hero – the King of Sleaze and ‘Totty Magnet’ – Tory Boy David Potts attendance record, and what an eye opener it was.

Below are Pudgy Face’s attendance rates up to 15 April 2009 and they have been taken from the council’s own website.

Clearly, he only attends full council meetings for the attention. He has no respect for sub committee’s, and cant be bothered to go to even 1 CAF meeting, they only council structure that deals directly with his ward members.

Labour council leader Iain Malcolm bought Tory Boy’s loyalty by giving him a Scrutiny vice-chair position, which the members allowance scheme shows pays £7056 in addition to his basic allowance of £7056  and this is how he conned more than £14,000 out of the public purse earned his money.

    Apparently Curly doesn’t enjoy linking here. This link proves otherwise.

    Hey I see Herr Rigg is playing the man/monkey and not the ball … banging on about copyright when his chum’s in hot water.

    I’m assuming Mister Monkey will be roasting Pottsy at every opportunity until Rigg pipes down?

    Just as I was thinking “what has Potts been up to lately”, you have supplied the answer – he has been up to nothing, just collecting his money and popping round to the Red Lion for a game of dominoes.

    The Tories favourite mantra centres on how the lazy unemployed can’t be bothered to find work but are happy to except free government handouts. Low and behold, they have one in their own camp!

    It also appears you have miffed Herr Rigg at his Corner Reichstag – you’ve nicked his ideas and you’ve nicked his photograph! From a man who bases the vast majority of his posts on the (nicked) words of other bloggers, he should be careful what he pontificates on. Seven of his last ten regurgitations have been based or centred on the mutterings of other sites, people who he clearly has an unhealthy fixation for. He may give them the old hat tip, but his actions only show he has run out of ideas, news and direction.

    What is strange about his post is that he makes no reference at all to the fact that his bum chum Potts has once again fraudulently posed as a councillor and ripped the public off to the tune of thousands of pounds.

    Now that Graham, is “hypocrisy and brass neck”.

    This is disgraceful, he’s treating the public like fools. A beam of light needs to be shone on the murkier dealings in this borough, and you, Mr Monkey, are doing just that.

    No doubt he’ll be kicked off his new-fangled position at the next sweetie-shop, and sent back to the backbenches where he belongs. But it also calls into question Iain Malcolm’s judgement. He chucked him a SEVEN GRAND sweetener to make life easy. It’s a total disgrace.

    The other local blogger likes to play the statesman role, but that never worked, did it? He was booted off the council at the first opportunity and his ‘party’ of choice now amounts to a few old farts from the same family.

    His defence of the filth and sleaze going on in this borough is shameful.

    If I were Jane Branley, Ahmed Khan or any other Independent councillor/associate, I would be consulting my legal representatives as I see no relationship between them and this site.

    When Cleadon & East Boldon was run by the Lib – Dems, They only claimed their allowance as
    none of them ever went on Jollies or had a Chair or Vice Chair, As the ruling Labour Council
    would never allow it – but since these Conservative Parasites got in they are Bleeding the
    public purse for all they can get, All it would take is a party that would take only allowances and they would be out, But as everyone know’s money is the route of all evil and
    these Devil’s are good at it, So only time will tell, Totri.

    I wonder why these so called Councillors or MP,s have Escorts, Is to try and prove to their
    Constituents that they are not Gay, Why try and hide in the closet – when everyone know’s
    what they it stick’s out a mile,

    Totri.
