  11. Look I know that’s not *** ******* talking up there. I removed his tongue years ago in a routine procedure that when terribly wrong.
    The man can listen for the people of Westoe but he cannot speak for them.

  13. A note to the witty and the witless who have contributed to this thread, your desire to cloak yourselves in anonymity has caused me and the following five South Tyneside Alliance Independent councillors great embarrassment, and I am now publicly apologising on your behalf to them for the public humiliation that they must have felt, and they are Allen and Jane Branley, Victor Thompson, Ahmed Khan and George Waddle.

    I regret that I cannot be here all of the time to constantly monitor what people contribute, and each of those who have commented is a third party with an identifiable IP address, their real identities are unknown to me, and I have no wish to unnecessarily restrict the ability or desire of people who wish to make comments here.

    This thread was plainly and unmistakably intended to be comical, however it is plainly not funny to use the names of real people, particularly those who the thread was about, nor is it funny for you to expect me to take the legal wrist slapping on your behalf.

    In future please be aware of your Ps and Qs , do not post deliberately to defame or libel, and engage your brains before deciding which name to post under, ’tis not you on the receiving end!

    Even though it is plainly obvious that these councillors would not deliberately speak ill of themselves, it behoves us all to lampoon them in a more intelligent manner.
