John Anglin looking for positive solutions in South Tyneside.

South Tyneside’s former Mayor Cllr. John Anglin won a handsome victory in South Shields last night when he ousted the Deputy Leader of the Independent Alliance Ahmed Khan in the Beacon and Bents ward of South Shields. Returning Labour  Cllr. Anglin gave this reaction to the Corner Shop:

As far as Beacon and Bents is concerned I am delighted that the residents have allowed me to represent them once more and promise that I will concentrate on positives and positive actions that are so necessary in these gloomy times. Enough of the continually negative attitudes. Lets see what can be done to improve our Ward and our town for the wonderful people who live in it.

  1. Whatever one’s political colour, there is no doubt that John is respected as a gentleman and a most personable champion of ST.

  2. John has struck the right note, to be fair ex councillor Khan did engage with and try to help constituents, but his refusal to condemn the content of the notorious “Monkey” blog and try to defend it’s content as “free speech” blighted his reputation. His supportive twitter followers, many of whom do not live in the area, seem to have no concept of the damage that allegedly defamatory and allegedly false statements can do to the lives of injured parties.

  3. Thec affection and respect in which the sadly deceased Joan Meeks and Jim Capstick were held locally should be an object lesson in how to conduct yourself in or out of office to those aspiring to, or elected to political office whatever party or independent faction they represent.

  4. Well since the Indy’s have been decimated we can get away from the Muppet Politics.
