Dear Sir or Madam

I am often at Stockport Town Hall. Many Stockport residents will be familiar with our gentle, peaceful town hall
protester. After a decade of trying to
get his complaint dealt with by Stockport Council without success (and I have
been 18 months trying to get them to acknowledge my complaint about anomalies
of several million pounds without any response at all), he decided to stand
peacefully on the town hall steps, with his jolly sign and cheery manner to all
passersby, till the Council did something about his complaint. Well, the Council did something alright. They
called the police to him over 70 times; so if you need the police and they
don’t come it is because Stockport Council is wasting police time. He was in court this week charged with
assault with a sneeze with intent to inflict a council employee with a cold. Is
that how you want your council tax spent on such a Mickey Mouse case? The Council runs the Magistrates Court, so not much of a fair hearing likely there. The LibDem Executive councillors were made
fully aware of what was going on and did nothing to stop this lunacy.

He now has a CRASBO (a
criminal ASBO) for sneezing and is not allowed near Council buildings.

So, a warning to the people
of Stockport. Don’t try to complain about Stockport Council –
they have sinister ways of shutting you

Kind regards
