councillor sectioned following sacking

'Councillor Potts cannot cope with his demons'

'Councillor Potts cannot cope with his demons'

A year ago councillor David Potts was a rising star in the Conservative party after being selected as the Conservative Parliamentary candidate to stand against the Chancellor, Alistair Darling at the next general election.

Many Scottish Conservatives reckoned that he was destined for great things and even councillor David Potts believed that he would – at the very least become a  minister in the new Conservative administration – that was until Mr Monkey revealed his antics here in South Tyneside to the world.

Within months of exposing the ‘real David Potts’ any ambitions he had to make it to Westminster were over. The Scottish Conservatives took the unusual step of effectively sacking him by removing him as their candidate and replacing him with Edinburgh councillor, Jason Rust who ironically had been pictured with David Potts on a number of occasions.

Councillor Potts found it difficult to come to terms with this rejection and his life quickly spiralled downwards.

Publicly he tried to convince the world that he had ‘resigned’ because of his father’s ill health and when it was pointed out to him by people who knew his father that this wasn’ttrue, he changed his story and claimed that the real reason he resigned was so that he could return to South Tyneside to fight the far right threat posed by the BNP.

He attended one meeting hosted by the leader of South Tyneside Council and to date no further meetings have been held.

Those close to councillor Potts feared for his safety and mental wellbeing as his behaviour became more erratic. They noticed that his drink problem had became more profound, he started to talk to imaginary beings and became increasing paranoid – he thought he was being followed by monkeys and started to see chimps everywhere.

This paranoia was coupled with depression, something he had suffered from as a child. He found it difficult to cope with and eventually retreated into his own world, he refused to answer his telephone, speak to anyone and then disappeared.

Some people thought he’d gone on holiday but Mr Monkey can now reveal that he returned to Scotland in an attempt to tackle his Edinburgh demons, but bottled it at the last minute and ended up in Glasgow.

He thought he was safe there where he could hide amongst the down and outs, tramps, alcoholics and drug addicts - that was until a jogger spotted him in the infamous Glasgow Green on the banks of the Clyde and called the police.

Apparently when the police arrived they found him unconscious on a park bench dressed in khaki shorts, a beige tshirt and a pith helmet. He was surrounded by a dozen toy monkeys, some of which had been mutilated and a fluffy chimp hanging from the tree above him in what appeared to have been a mock execution.

When the police roused him he refused to acknowledge their presence, pulled out a water pistol and started to ‘shoot’ the toy monkeys. He even tried to kiss and cuddle 2 blue monkeys which he kept referring to us Maggie and Smeagol.

At this point the police decided to ‘protect’ him and took him to the Gartnavel Royal Hospital where he was detained under section 4 of the Mental Health Act.

Mr Monkey can reveal that councillor Potts - who has a history of mental illness - is now hoping he can use his own experiences to change people’s perception of menal health and is campaigning for the law to be changed.

PART 2 WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY

McCabe’s rose tinted glasses

'A common sight in South Tyneside'

'A common sight under Labour in South Tyneside'

A sleazy picture of drunken yobs on Lukes Lane Estate in Hebburn has been used across the world to highlight the breakdown of British society under Labour.

The picture showing 2 youths in hoodies, swigging from a bottle has angered councillor John McCabe, aka ‘The Enforcer’ and his fellow Hebburn councillors who say the photograph does not properly represent the Lukes Lane Estate nor South Tyneside as a whole.

Councillor McCabe – the alleged wife beater said, “I think these pictures will anger all those town councillors who are working to improve places like the Lukes Lane Estate, where we have invested a lot of time and money”.

Mr Monkey wonders how often these so called representatives of the people visit some of the estates they represent because statements like this just show how out of touch they are.

Mr Monkey reckons it’s about time these councillors got off their lazy arses and saw for themselves the anti social behaviour that decent folk have to put up with on a daily basis before making fuckwit comments like this.

This chimp would like to remind The Enforcer that after more than a decade of Labour’s failed policies, hundreds of millions of pounds of public money, endless legislation and regulation the problem is worse than it’s ever been – and you’ve only got yourselves to blame.

So stop whining and do something about it, kissing your paymaster’s arse and burying your head in the sand won’t solve the problem.
