Last Wednesday 4th March Anston Parish Council met to discuss the Charity and Finance agendas. The videos of these meetings are below and it must be said that after viewing them it is easy to understand why APC is Not Fit For Purpose. For example; the Charity meeting agenda Item 16- ‘ To consider location of proposed skatepark and approve the use of Charity land for this purpose’. More on this later.
Videos 1 & 2 cover the Charity meeting and once again Independent councillors have to point out several inconsistencies and omissions on the agenda including debtors, charges and building insurance costs. As expected the Labour councillor’s and sham Independent Brindley remained silent simply because they do not understand how to read a budget sheet and have no qualms about spending our money without any discussions or debate.
Video 3: Finance meeting. Chaired by part time councillor Dalton (Who said she was retiring from public life-allegedly) The first thing Dalton did was to cherry pick items from the agenda which meant Item 21 (i) ‘To consider Cllr.Dalton’s attendance at the monthly F&GP committee meeting following the press article of 01/08/2014′ was not going to be discussed. Independent Cllr. Clive Jepson was very upset about this (and rightly so) because the same question has been on the agenda since September last year and the Labour party do not want this matter discussed in public meetings. Item 18 (g) (i) on the Finance agenda (not discussed) was ‘ To consider/approve taking full responsibility for proposed skatepark if/once constructed’. Consider this; The first proposal was to site the skatepark on Charity land and the second proposal was for APC to accept responsibility for the skatepark. See what I mean about Not Fit For Purpose? The Charity and the Council are separate entities therefore APC cannot accept and take control of anything that is the concern of the Charity. It requires a motion to be proposed, seconded and voted on before any transference of assets between the Charity and the Council can take place. APC is currently controlled by a bunch of Labour morons.
In video 3 you will also see Dalton lose control of the Finance meeting partly because of her decision to select certain items from the agenda and the general uproar from members of the public who were again denied the chance to openly question her and her bizarre behaviour. St.John also shouted across the table which caused further disruption and the meeting was closed by Dalton. Democracy is denied to residents by people who were elected to represent them and who prefer instead to run away from hard questions.
