Just who is writing Rochdale Lib Dem's press releases at the moment?
As Rochdale continues to go to pot, rumours abound that Agent Dave Hennigan is on a "special mission" of sleeze while Agent Adam, and a few more little helpers, mind the shop. Is taxpayer's money involved in all this intrigue?
Will Paul Rowen, stout campaigner on Parliamentary Freedom of Information, allow public scrutiny of all the financial accounts of his Drake Street HQ?
In all the recent negative spin that is upsetting some rank and file Lib Dems, the pincer movement appears to involve dishonourable, unparliamantary shenighans from Dave Hennigan, and the Johns - Swarbrick and Heyworth. Have they been spreading slurs and rumours on discussion boards such as Rochdale Online whilst Adam (I don't work for Paul Rowen) Power helps out with press releases that get posted on Rochdale Online?
A recent 'news' article on Rochdale Online includes a telling gaffe.
Posh Councillor William Hobhouse gets jiggy wid da NHS in a shameless opportunity to get coverage for Rossendale PPC Cllr Cricket Jnr (Dale Mulgrew) plus 'health campaigner', asbestos/Cyril Smith apologist Jean Jeanie Ashworth. (of "what is Nye Bevan"? fame)
The son of Lord Hobhouse is attributed to a quote that includes the line "After speaking to member’s of staff...."
"Member's of staff?" Why the apostrophe?
Cllr Hothouse had a proper Eton education. His classical education would never allow for such bad form in grammar. So who is really responsible for this ignorant faux pas?
OK, it's not that important in the whole scheme of things, but is this an example of 'someone' at Rochdale Lib Dems penning the supposed words of elected members - without their knowledge?
