Senior councillor quits lucrative cabinet position

'Did councillor Hanson really quit or was he forced out by the double dealing Iain Malcolm?'

'Did councillor Hanson really quit or was he forced out by the double dealing Iain Malcolm?'

Cracks are begining to appear in councillor Iain Malcolm’s new look administration which is set to be ratified at the Labour party’s annual gathering of the pigs round the trough meeting on Saturday May 9th before being confirmed by the full council on May 12th.

Rumours have been circulating for weeks about who’s been given what and Mr Monkey can now confirm that Miss Piggy, aka council leader Iain Malcolm has told all those in line for a goodie bag what they’ve got when he summoned them to his ivory tower last week.

But some people were far from happy at what they saw as a demotion and others felt that they were being moved sideways. Unfortunately for Miss Piggy, councillor Tom Hanson who represents the Bede ward took umbrage at being offered what in his opinion was a derogatory role within the administration and has now decided to quit his £10,000 a year position in the council’s decisionmaking cabinet to embarrass the council leader Iain Malcolm.

Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether councillor Emma Lewell is being used by Miss Piggy to keep former leader Paul Waggott from making  a return to the council chamber in 2010 and what better way to do it than by promoting Emma Lewell whose seat Paul Waggott is rumoured to be interested in. This would almost certainly anger some of the Jarrow group including Tom Hanson who hates Emma Lewell with a passion.

Seems that councillor Malcolm is determined to recreate the in fighting of the 80s and 90s that saw a split between Jarrow and South Shields Labour parties and the creation of the A and B teams .. I nearly forgot the C team!

    I remember the Labour A and B teams very well. The Malsolm’s and their groupies were the B team. I also remember Malcolm claiming how things would chnange if they got in.
    There’s nly one way to ensure neither despicable clique of the party don’t get back in office.
    Vote for anything apart from Labour.
    That party stinks to high heaven – and all of the self-serving scumbags attached to it from teams A, B, and C.
    And this isn’t just conjecture from me. I went to some of them to see exactly what the Hell was going on in local politics and I walked away disgusted. Half of their time (apres meeting and in the bar, of course) was spent on discussing who was going to get the next prime-location council house – let me tell you! The same people think they’re honest, law abiding people. No you’re not. You’re thieves.

    I forgot to add to the above comment. After a ‘good quality’ council house was allocated to family members of “those in the know” (I know of one deal where one party member, a house owner, ‘sold’ (a scam) their property to a family member for £1 – YES A POUND; in order to become eligible for council stock) – you can guess what happens next. Two years later, the rented house is privately purchased at the sliding scale reduction of course.
    So in my opinion, such dealings are actually thieving from the pockets of the electorate sums in excess of £50-60k a shot. And they hold their heads high?

    Mr M will you ask Mr Woods ( The Yank ) if he can get anybody a nice job or can he only do this for family members?? ( Fuckin good salary as well )

    He will know exactly what your getting at.

    I thought family members must admit relationships etc ??

    Mr M how about dedicating a story to this in case Mr W does not get informed ?

    He should not open his big gob when he has been drinking the free fire water ha ha
