I thought I'd amuse myself by reading his thoughts on his recent actions in his blog, but alas that is no longer a possibility.
Amused by the fact that Graham is obsessed by the thought that there is more to this. Of course, he couldn't be further from the truth. You can continue to read my blog, the link has always remained.

Good.

Though it was definitely not on your AW signature earlier, as we all witnessed.

Can you remember that far back, and would you have taken an interest if you can?

After all you'd only have been eight years old.

Or where you a political activist in your primary school playground?

That seems like a good idea. If children learn early enough about polotics and encouraged in the area then maybe we will have a whole generation of politically savvy kids for future generations. Too many when they reach their teens have no idea about polotics or why they should vote. We could benifit in the future.

Well frankly, it was, unless signatures broke for some reason, which I've never ever seen happen before.

I'm not making it up.

As you say perhaps it was broken.

I shall look forward to reading it again.

Labour in Hyndburn are the party that will just consistently try and trip the Conservatives up at every step. One day you will realise that it's constructive, and will win you more votes, if you admit where the council has achieved, what the Conservatives do well, and how you'll work together. You're unbelievable until then and won't be winning control. While under your stewardship Labour are a sinking ship - your hatred creates errors of judgement.

Have you apologised to Peter Britcliffe for the incorrect accusations in post one yet?
A lot of our views on how this council is run, our also shared be several Conservative Councillors .

Andrew. They probably wouldn't say publicly, but they are there.

You may well recall that one Conservative Councillor recently left the Tory group.

I think they have all spoken publicly and they have all put their views out in the public domain... It's no secret who some of them are.

John Griffiths, Doug Heyes, Sandra Heyes, Wyn Frankland, Rennie Pinder (chair of Altham Parish Council) and David Mason. On and off Paul Barton.

Wyn resigned describing her colleagues as 'Muppets and Puppets' in the press, you don't get more damning than that. Sandra is still involved at other levels despite losing her seat but people know her views.

I told John Griffiths he had been sacked from the cabinet. He didn't believe me. He did 5 minutes later after a showdown. Rennie won't stand for the Tories as they are now and will openly tell anyone that. David Mason resigned and described his Conservative Party as a dictatorship (in full council) a Party that doesn't listen to the opposition. Doug went in the papers a month or so back openly criticising Conservative Policies, is the husband of Sandra, and he is a long standing respected Tory.

Andrew, your local Party appears to be in chaos. It needs sorting out. Why don't you stand? You have less a majority now than you did in 1999. Just 18 Concillors. One less and you lose control. That's because you are benefitting from national polling and this hides the terrible situation of just how many are voting on local isues against this Conservative Council.

About 10 seats have a 50 majority on 1300 turnout.

Why on earth should he apologise to a man, who is a complete and utter disgrace, who dishes out totally uncalled for insults to other members of Hyndburn Council if they try to make any point at meetings.
