Delusions of Easter grandeur of a suspended councillor?

Caring, kind and considerate or pompous, presumptuous and self-promoting…

Southport people are to be forgiven if they see a local councillor taking on the role of the Sovereign, Prime Minister, the Pope or even a lowly bishop as somewhat presumptuous with an ‘Easter Message’. 

Barton said… 

“I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the residents of Southport a very happy Easter and a prosperous and peaceful Year ahead.”

NB. Why he capitalised the word ‘Year’ is unclear.

The media previously reported that Cllr David Richard Barton, who represents Dukes ward in Southport, faces a money laundering charge following an investigation into Barton Park Nursing Home, owned by his parents.

The family deny fraud. 

Sefton Conservative leader at that time, Cllr Terry Jones, confirmed that Cllr Barton was suspended from his party. 

Jones said: “In accordance with the national Conservative party rules, Cllr David Barton has been suspended pending the outcome of the case.”

Of course, some folks get overly suspicious when suspended politicians start issuing religious – based messages of goodwill, especially if these messages are flown in well above their pay grade.
