From Malice to Malarkey

This is your ‘Rutland Roving Reporter’ back again with more salacious gossip from the ‘Streets And Suburbia.’ (Known in certain circles as ‘S.A.S.’).

At the risk of being perceived as a plagiarist I have to bring to your attention an article from our county’s most balanced publication, ‘The Rutland Times’ (18/10/12; page 3 – certain names have been withheld to protect the innocent) in which it mentions a disturbance at a recent meeting of Oakham Town Council’s Parks and Planning Committee.  The paper reports that an un-named person was removed by “officers” after refusing to leave the meeting.  This was due to the person’s strong objections to a decision being made at the meeting. The meeting had to be adjourned because of the apparent outrageous actions from the individual who gave the chairman no option but to ask for the intervention of the police and halt the proceedings.   

Now, you may think that that could be the prerogative of an individual in a democracy (freedom of speech and all that malarkey) but after further investigation it appears that this is not the first time certain ‘individuals’ have disrupted meetings at the Town Council and at that ‘other place’ down the road.  At a recent meeting at that ‘other place’ it seems that there were unwarranted interventions by individuals who thought that they were the only people who needed to be heard. Even as they held up badly written signs, (that looked as though they had been done by a two year old), they still persisted to show little or no respect for the rule of law and not an iota of respect for people elected to act on their behalf in local governance.  My apologies for the reference to two year olds, after all they could have done far better.  

Ignorance is the word that springs to mind and it would appear that their actions on that evening left three council members no alternative but to leave halfway through the meeting out of embarrassment and disgust at the antics and comments from the individuals concerned. Their names don’t appear to be on any minutes or any reference made as yet, except in anecdotal evidence, but I guess we know who they are. And we wouldn’t want to write anything we couldn’t support without proof, unlike false reports often blogged by he who shall not be named.

Could it be that the same people are committing these near felonious acts at strategic venues or is there a band of professional disruptors doing the rounds in Rutland at every opportunity?  This reporter has no evidence that there has been disruption at meetings in the villages around our county town, or even at meetings in that other town down the road, so we can only assume that they have difficulty with transport, funds for taxis or even no transport of their own that would enable them to travel the country at will.  Mind you it seems not to hinder one particular individual who pops up just about everywhere and even eats out at expensive notable ‘posh’ Tory backed restaurants south of Bedford.  They say the nachos and roast pork are particularly good but better with apple sauce – if you can get it before the waitress decides you look a bit too shifty and dishevelled to eat there. 

The problem of the kind of disruption mentioned above is becoming prolific from what our team of researchers has discovered with the culprits being identifiable for being of a dishevelled and unkempt appearance.  I would suggest that the organisers of the demonstrations around the country on Saturday 20th in protest against austerity measures in the UK be very aware of people described as ‘unkempt and dishevelled’ with one of them carrying a camera and the other a broom. It might be that they will attempt to hijack the demo and turn it into a farce.  They’re good at that. 

It could however be a problem solved if the suggestion from the letter’s page (18/10/12; p.8) of the Rutland Times is to be taken up by RCC.  The suggestion from the writer is to move the council offices from Catmose to Ashwell and sell the current offices as a “...swish hotel” by a “responsible private company.”  That would be a good idea because the disruptive element would have to travel at night (the broom would come in handy if it is a tandem) and without any visible means of support or transport they would be stuck in Oakham with only one target for their indignation and ill temper. 

Finally there is the a suggestion that the individual who is being disruptive has the talent for suggesting that anybody who does something for charity is fair game for his attention, in the most despicable way.  Let’s not forget of course that the only charitable action he has ever been involved in is when he bought himself a train ticket from London to Rutland some 9 years ago.  Apparently the main reason he is here is because that’s all he had left from the handout from a church in London who needed to pay him off before he administered his own brand of coup de grace based on bluff, elasticity of the truth and fear. What a shame he didn’t have a few more ‘quid’ in ‘compo’ then he could have gone all the way to that phallic heaven he admires so much – Hoy!

For the next instalment of 'SAS' tune in again soon to Laughing Stocks, I have a sneaking suspicion it might be sooner rather than later.

The Betrayal of Helen Pender

In a hysterically funny piece, Rutland & Melton Parliamentary Candidate Helen Pender accuses her 'underdog' of biting her, calls him a 'hypocrite' and accuses him of cyberstalking and posting malicious comments against her.

"A series of destructive and dangerous posts have been left on web sites connected to Martin Brookes... Last night another dangerous and destructive posting was made on the web.  Martin Brookes pretending, I now believe, to be upset, sent me a text at 11.30 pm asking [me] to call him.  I walked up to Oakham police station [and] we went back to his computer and looked up the email we had sent earlier in the day.  It had been undeliverable and was not sent.  I wrote out the name of the email and password for Martin to access the email address we had sent the missive from.  I cannot now access that email address and suspect the password has been changed.  I did try to change the password but was unable to.

I am now beginning to wonder whether Martin Brookes has been complicit in this war of cyber stalking I have suffered, usually on his websites, since 2009.

I sent Martin Brookes the following email earlier today after he had rewritten history on his own blog.  Frankly the sense of betrayal one feels at his behaviour does hurt, but I intend to find out precisely who has been making such malicious and damaging posts in my name.  I hope Martin Brookes has betrayed me for the last time.

Accused by Helen of "cyberstalking" & "malicious postings"

Date: Thu, 3 Mar 2011 13:17:59
From: Helen Pender
Subject: Your malicious postings.
To: Martin Brookes

You Martin were with me when that email address was set up and have now changed the password to that email address so that I cannot even access it.  You were a party to an attempt to get the person we suspected of placing malicious postings on the internet in our name to stop and that was the point of that email.  If the person replied then you would be able to check the IP address and that is why you wanted to check that email address at your home last night. - or so you said.  What we saw was that the email was not delivered and came back as undeliverable, I can only assume that you resent it since then.  I now note that you have changed the email address of sxxxxxx@xxxxxxx and now suspect that it is you who has been posting these malicious comments.  Talk about a hypocrite - you were a party to the email sent yesterday, you checked it on your computer at home yesterday after you rang me at 11.30 in the evening when you claimed to be so upset.  I am now beginning to wonder whether it is you who has deliberately posted all the rubbish in my name.

I had never seen the comment I saw on your own website last night.  The only email I sent to you today was from this account and I have never used that account before or since.  I tried to get in today to change the password, just in case you intended to misuse that email address, for which I gave you the password and it seems you have changed the details so that I can no longer change the password.  So, in effect it is now your email address.


Pe[r]haps I should stop feeling sorry for people and stop trying to champion the underdog.  Why is it that those whom you try to help so often bite you?  By championing the underdog you seem to get viciously bitten and injured.  Lesson learnt perhaps."
