Wherever do WACA and Southport Tories find them?
Subsequent to my OTS News article, regarding the historical origins of modern festivals , I was attacked on the OTS News Facebook page by a poster calling himself, ‘Jolly bee Landscapes’.
So I am a ‘blasphemer’; well that should please my publishers enormously in the same way that the fatwa against Salman Rushdie worked so well for him.
In fact this poster has attacked Woodvale Woodland Project (WWP) volunteers ‘before’ and he is apparently supportive of the Woodvale & Ainsdale Community Centre (WACA) stance. This is the charity that helped to engineer the council ban on its own volunteers, after they rightly blew the whistle of Cllr Ted Hartill’s unsound project misdirection and political exploitation in the Woodvale Woodland. I am just one of the banned whistleblowers who freely assisted in logging the whole sad episode.
On 21st March 2014 WACA posted this following comment on their Facebook page concerning the alleged loss of fruit trees in Woodvale woodland.
“In additional to the 3 new fruit trees that were stolen 2 days after being planted in the Community Woodland, now some very sad person/s have dug up all the 10 soft fruit bushes. Its such a shame as these were planted by hard working volunteers for the benefit of all the community. Can I ask that everyone that uses the path from Meadow lane to the Sandbrook road Recreation fields, especially dog walkers to keep their eyes open. It appears that some people want to sabotage this Community Woodland Project, by stealing newly planted trees and shrubs....”
The link may now be defunct but all evidence is of course saved. WACA’s Facebook site was subsequently happy to permit offensive comments slurring the Regan family name later that same day. This nasty post, in relation to the tree theft, appeared on their ‘moderated’ Facebook page...
Jolly bee Landscapes stated... Bet a regan knows where they are!
Check this link for more data.
This single objectionable comment was clearly an insult to a family who have given 9 months of hard graft to the WWP work effort. It was unwarranted and highly malicious. WWP checked a little further and discovered more on ‘Jolly Bee Landscapes’ from a local chat room thread, which they were advised is run by a chap called ‘Jon’.
WWP would advise the poster calling himself ‘Jolly Bee Landscapes’ that he really should get both sides to a story before trolling out such unwise, offensive and potentially VERY costly remarks.
He may discover that the WACA propaganda that he seems to have digested, without question, is 100% inconsistent!
Soon after this offensive post went on WACA’s site WWP had supportive calls and messages from well-wishers. The Regan children were particularly infuriated by the insult! This was when WWP discovered that WACA staff was ‘moderating’ their Facebook page ‘selectively’.
IS THIS DISCRIMINATION?
How Low Can They Get?
Now this week Jolly Bee Landscapes is turning his odious attention to Teresa Smith (Libdem, candidate in Dukes Ward who is 'disabled' and in a wheel chair) on a more recent OTS Facebook story. Teresa is a Thalidomide survivor who has campaigned hard on access and disability issues for many years. She has also worked with terminally ill patients and for an international charity. Jolly Bee Landscapes’ made the following spiteful remark about Theresa on the OTS page:
“doesn't look like Pat has much opposition there.”
Are we mistaken or is this not plain nasty and rather vicious discrimination from this WACA/Tory supporter? Regardless of any political concerns, Teresa certainly does ‘not’ deserve such unwarranted abuse!
The ‘Pat’ Jolly Bee Landscapes defensively refers to is apparently Pat Ball, who is a standing Tory councillor. Does Ball also take the same stance as Jolly Bee Landscapes?
We also note that Jolly Bee Landscapes’ has taken a pro-Tory stance ‘before’ on other Facebook threads in support of Cllr Terry Jones the largely invisible Ainsdale Tory Group leader who is accused of secretly taping residents.
Jolly Bee apparently seems to think that he is ‘in the know’ and VERY close to the Tory leader (well maybe he is). Nevertheless he is utterly mistaken! Terry Jones previously threatened WWP volunteers with legal action, so is there any connection here between these two activists?
Odd though how the Tory supporters have kept so quiet about the fact that Hartill and Jones never came anywhere near to the vital campaign to save the Brookdale Resource Centre.
Jolly Bee Landscapes’, WACA and the unbelievable Southport Tory band – they are ALL very welcome to each other but you have to laugh at their silly school-yard antics.
It is such a shame when little people act without prior knowledge of what they are talking about. And one of the best examples so far has been ‘that’ WACA woodland cock up.
Now what lengths will these wonderful individuals go to next?
Grab the popcorn folks and watch this space... lol!
