POTTS AND TOPS

Poor old Councillor David Potts, he is becoming a bloggers dream, such is his ability to provide material to post on. Yesterdays Gazette revealed how the leader of the Conservatives in the Council chamber (there are only three: can you actually be a leader of three people?) has backed the fight to oppose the closure of Boldon C of E and St Bede’s RC schools, ear marked under the Boroughs “Transforming Our Primary Schools (TOPS) initiative (where do they get these names from?).

Whilst his support is admirable, his sudden conversion to educational issues will come as a surprise to residents in East Boldon, particularly those who have children at East Boldon Junior School. Two years ago the school lost a teacher due to funding issues and existing classes had to undergo a radical shake up. As a school governor, can you guess how many meetings Councillor Potts attended on this issue? Put it this way, the number begins with “nil”.

No doubt his new found zeal for these matters will have been noticed by his ward members, particularly as none of the schools highlighted operate within the area his represents.

If anybody else would like to raise this issue with him, they can contact Mr Potts at the following address: Councillor David Potts, C/O Scotland.

Your posts get even more childish as trhe days go by, you are getting like a schoolyard bully. Big and beefy no brains.
Don\'t you think it\'s time to grow up, if the councillor wants to take an interest in schools that\'s fine, what did you ever do to save schools Shaw? Who on earth are you representing...TWIT!

I really can’t figure out Billy Boy and Malcolm. The only thing that is certain is that they have nothing to say of a constructive nature. If you have any affiliation to Councillor Potts, please state why and at least then we can move forward with a discussion.

You've probably noticed that since the BRENDA issue over at Curly's Corner Shop many of his ‘regulars’ (sorry I meant to say cowards who hide behind bizarre identities) have been conspicuous by their absence.

I for one am delighted to see they’ve found a new home, let’s just hope for their sake that their new found bravery is well rewarded. Who knows they may even find a builder somewhere in the North East that will help!

Ahmed, I'm not a builder, I moved over here ten years ago to take a post with an ISP.
