Subject: Can council officers ever tell the truth?

Dear Mr Majothi

Please see the attached. It is implied by Ms Sager when I raise genuine and correct concerns about the funding that all is well, when in fact we have seen from the Agenda for pre-meeting minutes 30th March 2007 that there is obvious concern regarding funding. There was financial concern prior to this letter too. Was Ms Sager telling the truth?

Somehow, I think you are all going to be left with egg on your faces, or maybe even some of you spending more time with your families, for banning me for being ueber-vexatious. Please, please don’t throw me into the prickly briar patch ;o)

Yours

Subject: A massive reduction in the nursery places – why?

Dear Mr Majothi

Please see the attached.

The new centre was to provide 78 nursery places. We have seen that the birth rate in the area is rising. The nursery places now to be provided at the proposed children’s centre are around 50. I assume this is because the site is too small for purpose, in which case the school should not be going on this site.

Given all I have sent you so far, I am starting to smell a pretty strong rat.

Your comments please.

Yours

Subject: “Aspirations continue to exceed budget provision…”

Dear Mr Majothi

From the Harcourt Street Highlight report for period 15/3/06 – 14/05/20

“Aspirations continue to exceed budget provision and at this stage the scheme is undeliverable if the funding (or Brief) is not revisited.”

Highlight report for period 15/3/06 – 14/5/06

“Funding shortfall will lead to ultimate project failure if not addressed i.e., unable to enter into contract”. This was when the cost was circa £8.6 million – it is now circa £10 million.

From the Fir Tree Consultation with Governors 06/07/05

“There was concern from the governors that families in the Fir Tree area will have difficulty in getting to the proposed new site. The governors felt the outreach work would need to be increased as they felt parents from the school would not walk to the new facilities. The governors supports a new school but would wish the site to be in the Fir Tree community”

How much has the outreach work been costed at?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Discrepancy of several £m, but vexatious to question it

Vale View School Posted on Tue, January 13, 2015 18:13:02

This new school on 29th January 2014 for 630 pupils and a nursery is to cost £8m.

The toxic waste dump school for 525 children and a nursery way back in 2008 was to have cost £9,930m.

For both schools Stockport Council owned the land, so that can’t account for the decrepancy and back in 2008 Stockport Council were still lying that there was no contamination on the toxic waste dump school site (although they knew there was), so the contamination remediation couldn’t account for the large cost discrepancy.

However, we are not allowed to mention this matter to the LibDem rulers at Stockport Council. We are not allowed to ask FOI or council meeting questions about this, as it is quite plainly “vexatious” to do so.



How’s this for a nuisance call?

Town Hall Protester Posted on Tue, January 13, 2015 14:26:43

Our local MP Mr Stunneybuns and his sidekick Local Lisa actually phoned Mr Parnell’s widow twice and called at her house once asking her to vote LibDem. This caused her enormous distress and anger.

How’s that for a nuisance call Mr Stunneybuns?



Why didn’t the officials and councillors just do their job?

Town Hall Protester Posted on Tue, January 13, 2015 14:21:09

Mr Parnell was sick even when the LibDems started to persecute him. He was released from Forest Bank prison on grounds of health but they kept on and on persecuting him until he died aged just 58 after years of appalling treatment by Goddard, Derbyshire, Roberts, Weldon, Pantall, Bodsworth, Meikle, Khan, Boylan, Webb, Majothi, Stunell et al.



And yet more expensive court time wasted.

Town Hall Protester Posted on Tue, January 13, 2015 14:16:23

Yet more expensive court time wasted by the Stockport LibDems persecuting a sick, innocent man who had the temerity to insist on counselling for his lovely, troubled daughters adopted from Stockport Council.



More court appearances for an innocent man

Town Hall Protester Posted on Tue, January 13, 2015 14:13:15

How much have the Stockport LibDems cost the public purse with their year after year vicious persecution of what the courts and the police have admitted was a completely innocent man?
