Letter to Editor: Where are the Bush Fair councillors?


I’m not bitter, I’m angry!

Last September, the Corbynistas in Harlow Labour Party orchestrated my deselection. Because I wasn’t prepared to stay silent whilst some elements plotted and undermined and ultimately made the positions of other councillor colleagues untenable, I earned myself “a number of enemies” as one Labour Councillor informed me, that would negate nearly eight years of service to party, ward and town.

However, it wouldn’t matter, because despite leaving only one councillor living in the Bush Fair ward, the credible, visible and knowledgeable presence would not disappear.

But it has. Ask the butcher, the baker and the cafe owner. I have. Bush Fair councillors are nowhere to be seen I am reliably informed.

So when I see that apparently there is still a ward vacancy alongside the other adverts for last year’s events, I have to ask myself, is it a vacancy for one or more councillors that don’t care – because they’re just not there.

Of course, they’ll rush to put this right as they did with the insulting “paper plate cover up” and they’ll be quick to provide a long list of public engagements that no-one knew about, and how they’ll be donating their allowances to the homeless which, if they really cared about, they could have increased the grant aid direct.

They can’t be bothered. I wonder how many people won’t be bothered to vote next May either?

    I’m afraid you are bitter, Mr Beckett and you should really let it go because it’s never as simple as not getting on with your party though is it.

    Methinks there were other things in play here…

    Ask your Marxists mates, you know, the ones who dumped you.
    Central office Costanza, thinks he has the answers, wait on pal.

    What baffles me Becks, is that you still tend to support every issue that the Reds
    keep banging on about.
    Sexism, racism and discrimination, enough to be going on with.

    I have seen them out and about in Bush Fair. My friend said they were at Fountain Farm recently too.

    Mr Beckett, time to put the bitterness away, it’s getting tired and quite frankly looking pretty pittyful now.

    You will never see any Bush fair councillors out and about in Bush fair now all three of them are Labour councillors because they only cone out when it suits them.
    Give it next month, they will be out and about intimidating the Bush fair residents and feeding them false information about opposition party candidates especially ukip.
    Love Harlow vote ukip.
