For the second time in as many weeks I have been subjected to a letter from our Leader in the Adver where every sentence is preceeded by the word "Fact:".
Quite frankly I object to being talked down to in this patronising and condecending style.

So, I think it's about time we had our own thread on here entitled "Facts:". Please keep the entries in this thread to a single paragraph preceeded by "Fact:" and at the end of the week perhaps we could form our own TS letter to the Editor.

I'll start the ball rolling.

FACT: Talking in a patronising way to people who have a say as to whether or not they want you to continue to represent them is NOT to your advantage.

I reckon TS members could list several hundred embarrassing FACTS about Cllr Bluh & his colleagues, but here's a quicky.....


  • Cllr Rod Bluh & his chums went out of their way to arrange a loan facility for Digital City (UK) Ltd under which £450,000 of tax payers money would be lent to a newly formed off-the-shelf company which was started and run by a friend of theirs, Rikki Hunt.

  • A credit reference agency advised Swindon Borough Council to limit credit advanced to Digital City (UK) Ltd to just £500.

  • Cllr Bluh, et al, ignored fact 2 and arranged a credit facility worth 900 times more than the recommended £500 credit limit.

  • In spite of cogent and vocal attempts to dissuade them from doing so, Bluh & Co advanced £400,000 to Digital City (UK) Ltd, The money has not been repaid, Rikki Hunt resigned his directorship of the Company and declared himself bankrupt.

  • Garry Perkins, Deputy Leader of Swindon Borough Council, remains a director of the company but has yet to file the (very overdue) accounts or explain how he intends to repay taxpayers money.
