THE BEST QUESTION TIME - EVER!
I know that Nicky may well blog about last nights Question Time but I feel I must get a few things off my chest about some things that kept me awake thinking long into the night!
To see Councilor Alan Rigby say that he canvassed for a pal who was standing for the tories (Andrew Wragg) just left me dumbfounded! The man is an independent so what are his true politics? Is he a Tory or BNP? because it sounds to me like he could be either! Then he as the audacity to say that there is no alternatives in this city, well that's no bloody surprise is it when we have countless so called Independents in our city that obviously use independence as a mere label to hide behind, disguising their true beliefs!
Did the Asian guy get an answer to his question of what the future holds for him and his family in Stoke where there are 9 BNP councilors? Talk about politicians not answering a question this bunch managed to skirt around this question for nearly 1o minutes! The most telling contribution to this question came for Councilor Mike Barnes who quite rightly said that he was worried about the future of this city, well so am I because i did not realise that you can hide an awful lot behind just one WORD independent! In Councilor Rigby's case i say this "INDEPENDENT MY ARSE!"
To anyone thinking of standing as a councilor let me ask you this, please in the interest of the future of the city I love! If you are a Tory, stand as a Tory. If you have BNP ideals, then stand for the BNP. If you feel you relate to the Libdems then Stand and be proud of the Libdems! This is why in my opinion the BNP are gaining popularity because they are seen as the only alternative, I have been saying this since this blog began. Beware an Independent because last night taught me that there is no such animal!
