Its right to apologise when you're wrong. As Graham has been on many issues, including the totally incorrect accusations in the first post of this thread. Will there be an apology given or does Graham's hatred for Peter Britcliffe get in the way again, as it often does, and enhances his error of judgement.

At least Cllr Jones did not lie openly about this .. as in the 'Silly Cow' remark (sorry to bring that one up again .. but I heard it remember).

Just an incorrect supposition with the looks of it, and not too difficult to see who may have been asked for this information ..

Re: Hi

Interesting you know. I haven't had a single Conservative councillor contact me about the freedom of information request. Where as the Labour leader brought it to this forum, misinformed, accusing me of taking orders from Peter Britcliffes Psychic Hotline (back up and running now as you can see), and calling me pathetic. While other Labour councillors continued the with jabs and remarks from the sidelines. I do wonder what they're all so worried about?

You asked for personal information on not only myself,but other labour councillors. I think we have every right to ask why you asked for this information.

Re: Anyone made a secret Freedom Of Info request about me ? Andrew?

just an after thought on this matter

even though all councilors expenses were asked for if there had been suspicious elements on both tory and labours paperwork which one would have been brought up here

its all well saying all councilors were applied for but to be frank one could see that as just making it look like it wasnt aimed at any one particular person as well as making it look totaly innocent

personaly i cant see any point in applying for this information apart from looking for dirt which i guess wasnt found so teh matter wasnt brought up here by the investigator

polotics and paranoia go hand in hand it seems , im not politicaly minded and im thinking like a paranoid now lol

Re: Anyone made a secret Freedom Of Info request about me ? Andrew?

agree accyman i cannot see any purpose applying fer personal information,unless its to sling mud. it speaks volumes about this "we should work together" crap. the only losers in all this will be eventually the people of hyndburn, still whats new?

You may well recall that one Conservative Councillor recently left the Tory group.
And some have left the Labour Part too

Re: Anyone made a secret Freedom Of Info request about me ? Andrew?

I would like to thank the many contributors for an entertaining insight into the life of Hyndburn Councillors and the day to day political tightrope they walk whilst trying to do their best for the town. There have been some hair brained schemes but common sense has prevailed and they have been scrapped. Money has been wasted in the process but wasting public money will always happen when the emphasis is on scoring political brownie points rather than what is generally best for the town. Individual Councillors generally do an excellent job for their wards but as a Committee for improvements there are too many external issues affecting decisions.

You are quite fortunate in Hyndburn that you have Councillors who will defend their positions on a public forum, here in Morecambe a question to a Councillor is usually met with the answer to a question which has never been asked.
As for the rights and wrongs of the FOI act, I feel it is a good thing. If the search has been done in order to carry out a mud slingling exercise, mud can only be slung from the pile of dodgy doo doos.

I don't think you have any right under the Freedom of Information act to ask. You just have to accept that questions will be asked under FOI for lots of reasons, often by newspapers to make headlines.

Unless its changed It used to be a secret ballet of the Tory leader, which actually makes sense when they have to work with each other afterwards
