The King of Sleaze – David Potts is back!

"The King of Sleaze is back"

"The King of Sleaze is back"

Seems the double dealing twat, The King of Sleaze, councillor David Potts has surfaced from his sleazy bolt hole long enough to condemn the council’s bi monthly magazine; On View.

Apparently Pudgy Face Potts reckons it’s huge waste of taxpayers money and should be scrapped. Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether Tory Boy Potts has a short memory, is just plain stupid or was born a fuckwit.

Mama’s boy seems to have forgotten that he was responsible for setting an all time record for a councillor’s travel expenses. He conned claimed nearly £2500 in first class rail journeys to travel to and from Cambridge where he reckons to have been studying. CLICK HERE and HERE.

He’s renowned for using the fact he’s a councillor to scrounge his way into nightclubs, private parties and events that cost money with his “do you know who I am” con.

Now Mr Monkey learns that he was bought off cheaply is eternally grateful to his sponsor Miss Piggy, aka councillor Iain Malcolm for giving him a place at the trough.

Apparently Miss Piggy gave him the position of Vice Chair of the Select Committee Environment, Housing and Transport and Safer and Stronger Communities which carries with it an annual payment of £7,056.

This chimp has taken a closer look at this committee and can reveal that it’s only met 6 times since May 2008 – that’s equal to £1,176 per meeting.

But as with all things connected to the King of Sleaze, nothing is ever what it seems. Councillor Potts has only attended 3 out of the 6 meetings so his price is £2,352 per meeting.

Now that’s what Mr Monkey calls a waste of money.

    Sadly for the people of this Borough, Potts behaviour is nothing new. Not only has he fraudulently claimed expenses, he has been equally fraudulent in his claims to represent his ward.

    Since his initial election as a councillor, Pudgy has consistently had the worst attendance record of any sitting member in South Tyneside.

    The Gazette were looking at the matter of attendance records last year, but the story was pulled as a result of political pressure from the Labour elite. Clearly, Pudgy was not the only one who was sticking two fingers up to the people who elected him.

    Whilst searching the web for Potts related info, I found these three links – clearly, nothing has changed.

    Such was his contempt for the man, Alan Mordain stood as an independent against Potts twice in 2006. The old Northern Herald blog clearly had no respect for the man. You therefore Mr Monkey, follow a concerted effort to reveal the man for what he truly is – a fraudulent, lazy, arrogant and manipulative politician who sponges of the public purse. Hopefully, you will be the one to preside over his demise.

    Tell me what is more reprehensible – somebody who claims disability allowances, but does paid work on the side, or a councillor who claims every allowance he can get, but goes to as few meetings as possible?

    The answer is they are both equally deplorable – they are defrauding the tax payer!

    Time to adopt a policy of “No show, no Payment” perhaps?

    If I remember correctly, Mr Shaw had a blog called The Northern Herald – previously known as ‘Rise Like Lions’. The blog was pretty interesting at times. I think I’m right anyway… 😉

    I remember both them blogs scunner but they were a bit hit and missy. Sometimes they were funny, other times they were boring and sometime they would be spot on.
    What I do remember is Mr Shaw hated Councillor Potts and Graham Rigg (Curly) with a vengeance.
    Then one day without warning Rise Like Lions stopped posting. 6 months later the Northern Herald appeared and then it too stopped posting in May 08.

    Can anyone remember two other blogs that appeared after the Northern Herald stopped posting? I think they were called The Whip and The Chief Whip?
