Labour councillors paid almost half a million pounds

Its Labour’s turn to face Mr Monkey’s how much do they cost the taxpayer test.

When bloggers look at the figures it’s easy to see why so many Labour stalwarts have been around for so long. No wonder they squeal like pigs on the way to the slaughter house when they face the prospect of being dragged away from the trough.

Mr Monkey also reckons that this is why their lives are decimated when the electorate kick them out and why so many of them try and grab someone else’s seat on the council. This is the only way they can get their snouts back in the trough – there’s never been any honour amongst thieves especially when it comes to money.

Here are some of the highlights from The Labour Greed List,

• Coun Iain Malcolm made the highest claim at £32,435 (£623.75 a week)

• Coun Alan Kerr claimed at £23,319 (£448.44 a week)

• Coun Ernest Gibson claimed a record £4,932.27 for travel and subsistence

• Coun Rob Dix treated himself to a new BMW when he was elected. This delivery driver receives an annual boost to his salary from the taxpayer of around £14,000.

• After replacing Paul Waggott as leader of the council, Coun Malcolm promptly put the boot in by not giving Coun Linda Waggott a place at his trough. She was the only Labour councillor not to receive a special responsibility allowance.

Mr Monkey was staggered to learn that almost half a million pounds of taxpayers money was paid to just 31 Labour councillors and for what? Most of them can’t string a sentence together and couldn’t care less about the people they represent, that is until it’s time for their re-election.

The cost of each Labour councillor to the taxpayer in 2008 – 09 was a staggering £15,029.83.

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!

More Recycled Shit

Seems councillor Michael Clare’ obsession with recycling has now spread to the council’s press office.

Mr Monkey has noticed that ever since Miss Piggy, aka Iain Malcolm grabbed control of the council from Waggott the council has been recycling old policies and press releases in an attempt to look busy and con the residents of the borough in to believing that he’s actually doing something.

Mr Monkey nearly choked on his peanuts when he saw this blatant con by Miss Piggy and his stooges. CLICK HERE.  

But the piece de resistance has got to be this comment attributed to Mr Tits, aka councillor Alan Kerr,

“The Council is working hard to make its services more flexible and accessible to customers. Our easy to use website is an excellent resource and shows agendas and minutes for all major committees. Clicking on council agendas is a great way for local people to keep in touch with the decisions that affect their everyday lives from planning issues to refuse collections.”

Anyone who knows this dirty old bastard will tell you he couldn’t of dreamt this statement up even if Pamela Anderson was giving him a tit wank – the letch is not capable of spewing this shit.

Mr Monkey can confirm that this press release is nothing more than an attempt to fuck us and just shows the contempt this council has for the residents of South Tyneside.

For the record committee papers, agendas, reports and minutes have been available on line since 2002 so this press release is nothing more than a con.

Mr Monkey can’t wait to see what Mr Dumpy, aka Papa John Szymanski does with this press release given the fact that his obedient lackeys reporters have been using the council’s on-line links to access committee papers etc for the last 5 years.

REVIEW OF 2008: Maggot, Waggott and Faggot

Many readers will remember the A and B teams of the local Labour party. 

There was the Jarrow lot led by Stephen Hepburn and Paul Waggot and then there was the Shields gang led by the old guard but behind the scenes there was the scheming and conniving Malcolm’s led by the fairy God-mother of all crooks, councillor Iain Malcolm, aka Miss Piggy.

This post concerns some of the names given to the opposition his Labour colleagues by councillor Iain Malcolm, apparently he had a derogatory name for just about everyone including his own mother and brother.

Maggot, Waggott and Faggot ..

Apparently the current Monkey Puzzle has been the talk of the members lounge with councillors desperate to learn the real identities of Councillors Maggot, Waggott and Faggot. Well Mr Monkey can reveal all.

Maggot– this title was given to Councillor Linda Waggott as she has a liking for other peoples flesh.

Waggott – everyone must have got this one! If you haven’t where the hell have you been?

Faggot– most of you thought this was Councillor Iain Malcolm, unfortunately you’re way off the the mark. This honorary title goes to former Labour Councillor and now Member of Parliament for Jarrow, Stephen Hepburn.

What most of you won’t realise is that the phrase Maggot, Waggott and Faggot was coined by the current Leader of the Council, Iain Malcolm shortly after his lover’s tiff with Stephen Hepburn and his fallout with the Waggotts.

REVIEW OF 2008: Has Waggott Stabbed McAtominey in The Back?

This post first appeared after Steady Eddie’s first arrest on suspicion of drink driving. He protested his innocence and said he’d fight to clear his name.

 

Steady Eddie spent the next 8 months wasting the police and court’s time pleading not guilty and using every trick in the book to wriggle out of being convicted. But Mr Monkey reckons he was trying to protect his lucrative paid positions on the council and the police authority.

 

Unfortunately for the borough’s number one pisshead, he was caught drink driving a second time. This time he pleaded guilty, was banned from driving and was forced out resigned from his paid positions.

 

He decided to change his plea to his first offence and was rightly convicted of failing to provide a specimen.

 

Councillor McAtominey offered no apology for wasting thousands of pounds of public money, instead we had to listen to yet another sob story about his illness and how it had caused him to turn to drink.

 

What a lying bastard, ask anyone in the Labour party about his drinking habits and they’ll tell you he’s always been a pisshead and has never been able to control his excessive drinking.

 

Reports have reached The Monkey that Paul Waggott is the latest suspect in the Eddie McAtominey saga. ‘Steady Eddie’ as he has become known, believes that he was deliberately set up by someone in an attempt to get rid of him, he claims the police were lying in wait when he fell out of the pub pissed as a fart – nothing to do with good policing and vigilant officers then!

 

According to a source close to ‘Steady Eddie’ the number one suspect has always been Iain Malcolm as he clearly stood to gain most from the demise of his number one foe.  However, it has now emerged that former council leader Paul Waggott who was rejected by the people of Fellgate and Hedworth planned on making a quicker than expected comeback.

 

Apparently Waggott has earmarked ‘Steady Eddie’s’ seat if as suspected he gets the boot in August.

 

The Monkey reckons this explains the sudden burst of activity in the town hall to stitch up bestow the honorary title of Freedom of the Borough on Paul Waggott – talk about killing two birds with one stone. 

 

This leaves Iain Malcolm with a dilemma of immense proportions, who does he hate most ‘Steady Eddie’ or ‘The Poison Dwarf’?

The Top Club’s Queen of Sleaze

Who said he's gay?

Who said Iain's gay?

Mr Monkey promised to tell you the tale about Andrea from The Top Club, one of Iain Malcolm’s former associates, so here it is.

Ed Malcolm, aka Frank Sidebottom, was overheard at the Labour Conference this year saying how shocked he was that Mr Monkey alleged that his brother Miss Piggy is gay. “Him! Gay!” he was heard shouting next to the Northumbrian Water stand – “How can they say he’s gay?”

Well this stupid granny shagger must be blind as well as daft – it might explain why he keeps poking old Olive Punchion.

Although Ed might have a fair point, after all brother Iain goes to great lengths to prove just how butch he is.

Back in the old days, Iain, The Queen of Sleaze, would slow right down in his old red Rover, wind down his window and shout ‘phwoarrrr’ any lass under the age of 50.

Sometimes, after all of his council meetings had finished, he’d head over to the Top Club where he’d prop up the bar making lewd gags to this poor lass called Andrea who worked behind the bar. He’s grab any opportunity he got to try and prove he was straight, he’d make bawdy jokes to Andrea about how he’d love to take her home and bang her till she couldn’t walk. That was until she called his bluff and said ‘OK take me home then, Iain’, the poor bastard ran a mile.

He might have been horny, but it’ll have been the bouncer he was interested in, not Andrea. To make matters worse it turned out that Andrea was related to Paul Waggott – the man he helped oust from Fellgate!

Mr Monkey has looked at part of Iain’s personal life (the attempt to arrange a marriage will be kept under wraps for now). Next up will be his political life, in particularly his love of leaks and all things postal.

Mr Monkey will reveal exactly how Paul Waggott’s infamous ‘lunatics’ e.mail reached the Shields Gazette back in January. Stay tuned to find out who leaked it, authorised it, printed it and posted it, and exactly who to.

He’ll be spitting FEATHERS when Mr Monkey delves deeper into his postbox fun .. did someone say FEATHERS?

Mayor Hands Waggott £2500 Scroll.

When it comes to wasting taxpayers money on themselves no one does it better than the local Labour party.

There’s no better example of this than the shameful way councillor Iain Malcolm and his highwaymen have robbed the public purse to reward their former leader Paul Waggott for losing his seat to Indy Alliance councillor Geraldine White.

These bloodsuckers had the balls to try and justify this cynical misuse of taxpayers money by awarding election loser Waggott with Freedom of the Borough.

In a defiant ‘fuck you gesture’ the local Labour party had the cheek to hold a lavish £50 a head dinner in the town hall to “celebrate Paul Waggott’s life on the council”. This ‘gesture’ cost local taxpayers over £2500.

It seems Iain Malcolm’s genorsity knows no bounds when it comes to spending public money and this exclusive Labour party bash was just the tip of the iceberg.

Mr Monkey can reveal that Paul Waggott was presented with an illuminated scroll on Friday evening by the mayor, councillor Alec Donaldson on behalf of the Labour party‘grateful people’ of South Tyneside!

This small piece of parchment came in an engraved silver casket and cost the taxpayer another £2500. Those present were also presented with a memento of the occasion in the form of a timepiece.

After the formal part of the ceremony Labour councillors, friends and supporters of Waggott, The King of Sleaze and Pussy Prowler councillor David Potts and a handful of council officers retired for nibbles and drinks .. at our expense of course!

It may come as a surprise to Dick TurpinIain Malcolm, but the vast majority of people are disgusted by his generosity and the blatant misuse of their money and like Mr Waggott, he will pay the ultimate price in 2011.

That’s assuming his generosity in awarding £8.5 million pay off to his former friends colleagues at Newcastle Airport doesn’t bring him down first!
