South Shields premier political blog

Cllr. Khan was unavailable for comment this morning

Cllr. Ahmed KhanOh that does make a pleasant change, but hang on a minute, he has plenty to say this afternoon on his Twitter page where he uses this picture to represent his account. The file is entitled smb.jpg, I wonder if the “m” stands for monkey?

Really, there are times when it is better advised to stay quiet until the whole business is resolved in the courts and to desist from accusing South Tyneside council officials of telling lies and hiding the truth, and also just as well advised to stop insulting half of the football fans in your ward.

Whatever the outcome, and whatever the future holds for the South Shields based Cllr. Khan, he can be assured that he has made some sort of memorable mark on South Tyneside’s political scene.

  1. He’s left a mark alright. The sort found on dirty underwear.

  2. When will Khan and “Private Eye” grasp the simple fact that publishing allegedly false and malicious statements about private lives and lifestyles of local politicians is not fair “criticism”; claiming that Cllr X had a fling with Mrs Y in a bush is not the same as, for example, a legitimate enquiry as to why X+3 Million pounds was spent on a new municipal swimming pool rather than X million pounds.

  3. It may seem hard and intrusive, but, in certain circumstances, accessing emails sent and received by LGO’s and Councillors may not be “illegal”; my undestanding is that every LA has a well publicised internet user policy, and that one of the penalties for suspected misuse of said facility is that your use of it may be the subject of an internal investigation. Furthermore, publishing unsubstantiated and potentially inaccurate claims that a CEO of a local authority is acting “illegally” could potentially result in a libel action. I still find it extraordinary that it appears that some LGO’s and Councillors seem to have little or no appreciation of the fact that ST Council’s IT facilities are not provided for anything other than strictly legitimate council business use, and also that tweeting in the capacity of a Councillor should be an activity engaged upon with care and circumspection.

  4. Anyone interested in STC top officers salaries and job descriptions/areas of responsibility can easily accesss information on Council’s website, nothing covert or hidden, transparent and available as required by Central Govt diktat.
