We’re just back from the above public meeting in the lovely Memorial Unitarian Church, Manor Road, Wallasey, built in 1899 and a stone’s throw from #Brickgate – no pun intended.
The meeting went okay, but the whole thing felt a bit like a tick-box exercise, and due to the rather dismissive treatment of a sensitive local issue – antisocial behaviour – it got a bid rowdy at times. And when a police inspector repeatedly responded to public complaints with, “I don’t recognise that statement”… and … “antisocial behaviour has gone down”, the audience got more and more frustrated.
We’d taken the following question with supporting statement to read out to Angela Eagle. I held my hand up towards the end, but appeared to be ignored.
Luckily, Angela had already offered to take complaints and queries from the public after the meeting, so when it ended we all queued up to be seen.
As we walked towards the stage at the front, down the central aisle, our three intrepid hard right Labour Seacombe councillors who’d been seated in the front row took their chance to escape down a side aisle. Here they are in order of exit, Councillor Christine Jones, Councillor Adrian Jones and Councillor Paul Stuart.
As we queued, we were approached by Bridget Frear, Angela Eagle’s assistant. We voiced our complaint to her and brought to her attention the following opinion piece in the Daily Mail of 8th April 2018…
We then stepped up to greet Angela…
We’ll finish with reminders of how Angela Eagle and Jane Kennedy were inflicted on us back in the early 1990s, a time when Neil Kinnock and Roy Hattersley’s star chambers were destroying good candidates UK-wide, and replacing them with right wing upstarts who later went on to call for the invasion of Iraq, the bombing of Libya and Syria, to destroy the Labour Party’s legacy under the guidance of war criminal Tony Blair and to fill council chambers up and down the land with cowardly, careerist, hard right Labour candidates.
…and finally an observation. We are very poorly served…
…and how do we get rid of these people?
