Evening Express Story Complete Fabrication

Evening Express Story Complete Fabrication

Evening Express Story about National Front Complete Fabrication.

Not for the first time that Aberdeen’s local evening newspaper has made it up as they go-along all in favour of their favourite local pin-up boy Mr Paul O’Connor MBE but yet again they are caught out about last night’s published story about National Front leader Mr Dave MacDonald shows there is something seriously wrong going on.
The Evening Express had a reporter in question at a local community council meeting along with 3 local councillors 2 policemen and 2 community wardens yes we know how often does this happen at other City Community council events, but if Mr O’Connor requires an audience it is provided for what was going to be a command performance of epic proportions and the reason was Mr Paul O’Connor MBE was so upset that the UK’s national front leader was one of the few fully elected members of Garthdee Community Council and was starting to ask awkward and difficult questions so they devised a scheme to get Mr MacDonald to feel guilty and resign from his post.

THE FAILED INCHGARTH PLAN.

Mr O’Connor and his partner Mr Murray is both the Garthdee Community Council and Inchgarth Community Centre Chairman and Treasurer where money changes hands from both groups, nothing like a conflict of interest, Mr O’Connor released a document from the inchgarth community centre claiming the committee wanted to remove the Garthdee Community Council from using its council owned premises because there was a national front member serving his local community and they objected so they were asked to find somewhere else instead.

So here we are, Mr O’Connor MBE convenes a meeting where he is chairman and god almighty of both parties and tells himself to vacate his own community centre and find somewhere else to go, then tells his beloved local rag it’s all true, they publish it without a second thought even though they were told it was complete rubbish last weekend!

It now transpires it was all a big fat lie, Mr Scott Beattie, City Burgess the real inchgarth leader and well respected community worker; now claims it’s all a misunderstanding “we are not banning the Community council we only want the room to rent it out as we are losing income”, so much for the people by the people nonsense!

What’s next Mr O’Connor offering to get his Treasurer to pay fees back to themselves in order to stay where they are and getting both committees to agree to a suitable fee, it shows how conflicts of interests can perhaps be abused in cases like this!

Great idea Mr MBE then plots to move his Garthdee Community Council into Kaimhill wing hopefully for free and getting addittional income from freeing up the room at inchgarth currently being used by the Garthdee Community Council and all the while blaming it all on the National Front Chairman shows just how shameless this all adds up to and the reason ACC needs to act on this blatant conflict of interests!

Was this all about revenge as Mr O’Connor was found Guilty of a Breach of the code of conduct against Mr MacDonald by Aberdeen CCLO. for threatening remarks made in a national online quote and social media only weeks earlier that the Evening Express has totally failed to report nothing like bias reporting!

Some of the Elected members made public comments about this will they rethink given they were also hoodwinked bigtime or were they aware it was also made up rubbish?

Should anyone who holds an MBE, Burgess awards behave in such a way and allow the local rag to write a press release that was built on complete hogwash and allowed it to happen shows he can not be trusted by the people and for the people of Garthdee or anywhere else in this blogs humble self opinions?

So will the local rag retract their utter crap story and offer Mr MacDonald an official apology and write the real story of merely tongue and cheek remarks aleged to have been made in 2008 and confirmed on the night?

Will Mr O’Connor MBE and City Burgess say sorry, please forgive me folks?

Ofcourse we now know the chairman wants to spend some of the £35,000 planning gain at his inchgarth cc for euro disney mark2 playpark, 26k was alleged to have cost to furnish mark1 that could have been furnished for a fraction of the cost and as its on council land if the centre loses its lease who owns all the assets of the current centre, if a young person is injured who is liable for any damages because the council wont cover it and same question about the tennis courts?

Inchgarth CC also claims this blog is reporting the truth as always and complaining about it have they no shame?

 

Treasury insists its tax powers offer is “logical and fair”

From www.heraldscotland.com
DAVID Cameron’s compromise deal on Holyrood’s new tax powers would have given Scotland more money since devolution than the current Barnett Formula has, according to the Treasury.

But this claim contrasts with Nicola Sturgeon’s view that Whitehall’s current offer could leave it £3 billion out of pocket over the next 10 years.
Peter A Bell’s insight:
The very fact that the ‘deal’ on the financial framework is open to such widely divergent interpretations clearly demonstrates that it is fatally flawed. We may have to accept that it simply isn’t possible for the two governments to reach agreement on this because each is approaching the negotiations with irreconcilable imperatives.

The Scottish Government’s imperative is to repatriate the powers of the Scottish Parliament.

The UK Government’s overarching priority is preservation of the structures of power, privilege and patronage which define the British state.

There is no possibility of an ‘enduring settlement’ here. There are only increasingly uncomfortable and short-lived compromises.

The Scottish Government has a solemn duty to ensure that these compromises are not seriously detrimental to Scotland. The British establishment is either indifferent to Scotland’s interests or actively seeks to use devolution as a weapon against a Scottish Parliament and Government which is now regarded as a significant threat to the British state.

What we are witnessing are the inevitable consequences of a No vote gained on a prospectus which was never subject to any scrutiny by the mainstream media. The result of the referendum stands. But we cannot pretend that No voters made an informed choice. The situation in which we now find ourselves was easily foreseen. But those with a responsibility for informing the electorate were disgracefully derelict in their duty.

Independence is inevitable. That should now be clear to any rational mind. Devolution simply won’t work. And great harm may be done by clinging to something which is so obviously failing.

Devolution is dead! Independence! Nothing less!

INCHGARTH COMMUNITY CENTRE DISCRIMINATION

INCHGARTH COMMUNITY CENTRE DISCRIMINATION?

Inchgarth Community Centre last week had a committee meeting and decided to discriminate against a national political leader who was elected by the local community not like most of the other co-opted members and ban the entire Garthdee Community Council from using Aberdeen City Council’s owned building for their official meetings.
What some might find as bizarre is the fact this community centre is run by the exact same treasurer and chairperson (life partners) that also do the same jobs on the community council in the same catchment area has asked the said community council not to attend and find other accommodations for their deliberations in future.
It therefore begs the question whether these two gentlemen can still offer their services to the community council and whether it would be in the best interests of the Garthdee community and resign from these posts?
Inchgarth Community Centre in this websites opinion does not have the right to discriminate against any legal political national leader because of their beliefs any more than the other way round and even more interestingly gave no indications of any right of appeals which proves the point that many have been saying for years there seems to be a direct conflict of interests so much so we would like to see the minutes of this 4th of Feb meeting, to ask whether the chair and treasurer noted their interests prior to the vote taking place?

Some might think this was an attempt to get rid of the elected member but there is no chance of that happening anytime soon.
It’s also worth mentioning this same chairperson was found guilty of the councils own regulations and found to be in breach of a code of conduct towards this member by calling him a LITTLE BASTARD any other things that showed he had clear and present anger management issues in the National Scot publications which clearly shows bias towards this elected member of the Garthdee community!
Should anyone that holds an MBE, Burgess of The City of Aberdeen and director of several organisations behave in such away no matter his own personal and private views?
He also runs a centre with very vulnerable clients and runs lots of children’s activities.
Aberdeen City Council has rightly offered him advice on his future conduct but doubt he will take it.
Inchgarth Community centre has a moto “for the people by the people” yes just as long as YOU agree with OUR political views which is perhaps called Inchgarth Community Centre Discrimination!

The Truth Is Out There

The Truth Is Out There!

The Truth Is Out There in Garthdee, a tiny hamlet of Aberdeen, the place time forgot and the place where one man used to rule could soon be a thing of the past.

Now one person has shifted the balance of power and opened the entire community to a new life of scrutiny and open debate like never before.

Today the self proclaimed god king removed certain social media postings which for the uneducated in these matters makes no difference as Facebook and twitter keeps copies of all postings made and deleted on their servers, unlucky.

We have yet to report on the full details of this said event that caused this massive sea change but rest assured we will!

 The Truth Is Out There if one is brave enough to search for it!

SCOTTISH LABOUR BACKING FOR FAIR DEAL FOR SCOTLAND 

CROSS-PARTY UNITY AGAINST TORY PLANS TO SLASH SCOTLAND’S BUDGET BY BACKDOOR

The SNP has welcomed confirmation that Labour’s leader in Scotland will back the Scottish Government’s position in the negotiations on the Fiscal Framework – as the consensus against Tory plans to cut Scotland’s budget by the backdoor grows.

As confirmed in a Twitter exchange last night, Kezia Dugdale agrees that the Scottish Government’s preferred option of a per capita index reduction model is the best deal for Scotland.

Ms Dugdale is the latest person to join the growing consensus in favour of the Scottish Government’s position – joining the likes of Grahame Smith of the STUC and Professor Anton Muscatelli of the University of Glasgow.

Commenting, SNP MSP Mark McDonald said:

“Labour’s backing for the Scottish Government’s position in the fiscal framework negotiations is very welcome – and shows the growing consensus right across Scotland against Tory plans to cut our budget by the backdoor.

“People in Scotland are right to expect that every party in the Scottish Parliament would back the best deal for Scotland – now that Kezia Dugdale has made her position clear, Ruth Davidson must confirm whether she backs a deal in Scotland’s interests, or whether she will continue to take her orders from the Tory Treasury.

“This isn’t an argument about how much financial detriment or what size of cut to Scotland’s budget is acceptable – the Smith Agreement said no detriment and that’s exactly what the UK Government must agree to.

“The SNP in Government will never agree to a deal which would allow the Tories to cut Scotland’s budget by the backdoor – and it’s very welcome to see that Labour in Scotland have backed this common-sense position.”
