The Barnet Eye war on Barnets spongers and parasites
We believe it is outrageous that Barnet's Tory Councillors have voted for huge payrises (100%) and we are committed to ensuring that all spongers and parasites such as these are put into the public spotlight. I must at this point commend Conservative Councillor Kate Salinger. Whilst I disagree with her politics, she has shown herself to be decent, honest and principled. It is sad to note that all of her colleagues took such exception to her refusal to abandon her principles that they sacked her from all her positions on committees. Presumably they couldn't trust her to do the right thing for the people of Barnet.
I am not alone in my campaign. I call on all bloggers in Barnet to join the war. I call on all Conservative party members to join the war. I call on all Councillors of the Labour and Lib Dem group to join the war. I call on all members of these parties as well the Greens and the Residents party to join the war. You may ask what you can do?
http://committeepapers.barnet.gov.uk/democracy/council/listcouncillorname.asp?intSubSectionID=13&intSectionID=9 -, you can find out the name, email address, telephone number and address of your local councillor. I suggest you contact them and tell them they are a disgrace. If you voted for them before, tell them that they have let you down. You are paying through the nose for them, so you have every right to contact them. They are your elected representative and it is there job.
You will be pleased to know that a Barnet Eye fifth columnist at Barnet Council has very kindly put up pictures of these spongers all over Barnet so you can recognise them. Of course the Barnet Eye would never advocate such childish actions as defacing these posters with the words "sponger", "Hypocrite" or "Parasite". This would be extremely naughty and we'd have to tell you all off. What we would do is encourage you to look very closely at the pictures so that if you see them out and about, you can take the opportunity to do what our posters say and tell them what you think of them. Brian Coleman has said publicly that you will be pleased that he's doubling his pay. I think you'd be doing Mr Coleman a grave disservice if you allowed him to carry on under this delusion.
Finally one word about the spongers and parasites of Barnet. One of Barnets most idiotic and wet behind the ears Councillors, Tom Davey (who incidentally has not exactly ever sweated on a building site to earn his daily bread) suggested that poverty is the fault of the poor (rather odd for someone with a wealthy mummy to put him through college - how would he know?). Well as far as I'm concerned, the worst spongers and parasites are ones such as Mr Davey and his colleagues. They are well off, well educated and well connected. They don't need to ponce. They just do it out of complete bone idleness. They are in no position to lecture anyone on anything (with the honourable exception of Kate Salinger, who has given us all a lesson in honesty, courage and decency).
************* Update **************
I've just noticed that former Edgware Tory Councillor Richard Weider has left a comment on the Not the Barnet Times blog stating that he's upset and disappointed with his former colleagues (apart from Kate Salinger). I've also had several more communications about Graham Old and his sudden conversion to troughing, having originally opposed it. None of the comments portray Mr Old in a good light. I am going to email him for a comment - I will update on what I get back.
