South Shields premier political blog

They called him Ernie…

with one comment

……but he’s not the fastest milkman in the west.

South Tyneside Labour councillor Ernest Gibson used to have a blog with his colleague Cllr. Bill Brady (who didn’t contribute a lot), it didn’t last very long but covered what the two of them were up to in Whiteleas ward of South Shields, no sooner than it was up and running and attracting a few comments it was pulled. Ernie is now sending out “tweets” from his own Twitter page just in time for the local government elections, you can follow him here. I’m rather hoping that he raises the bar as far as our twittering councillors go in South Tyneside, because frankly some of the bilge emanating from some of those elected to represent us in the town hall has been pretty dire over the past couple of years.

I hope this doesn’t sound too cynical but lets hope that Cllr. Gibson doesn’t give up on the project a few weeks after May’s elections have been and gone!

  1. One of the ironies is that the twit ters have a habit of shooting themselves in the foot when they make personal as opposed to intelligent political points. One pokes fun at the size and appetite of X, whilst no Adonis he, another rails against alleged freeloaders whilst his nickname is “virtual reality” on account of his low profile…Meanwhile on this site there is some concern for and intelligent discussion about the future of this area.
