Title: Evening Standard Articles
Post by: Kill Switch on 09 November, 2011, 05:36:59 AM
As there seems to be an Evening Standard campaign against Wastemonster, I thought put all the links here, I'll start:

Hmmmm. Wonder where they got this story from? <_>

In fact, it seems to me that an awful lot of what is revealed in these stories about Cllrs Barrow and Rowley and others, various council officers and various departments at Wastemonster have been taken from Nutsville's blogs.

Coincidence?

I think not.

Maybe Nuts should start his own Westminster local newspaper, he could call it "Westminster Death Throes"  :rotfl:

"Mr Barrow said that he was not concerned by the move to oust him. He added: "Independent candidates are something people talk about from time to time but at the end of the day we are routinely re-elected."" 

Smug bastard, lets hope he gets his comeuppance in the spring

All good stuff, but I strongly suspect that Barrow doesn't give a flying f***, as he'll just retire in a few years and leave others to carry the can.  >:(
 
For Rowley, on the other hand, this must be like watching your career, both past and future, sliding slowly down the khazi  :rotfl:

Quite agree, as a wannabe MP he (Rowley) and his councils antics do not seem to be going down well with an increasing number of party elite, lets hope the twat never gets selected.  I'd love to see this pricks political career get flushed  :dancing:
