I think Oliver Donachie needs to step back from the spade cos that's a whacking great hole he's digging for himself.

Whilst many suspect that's who it is, nobody (apart from the man himself) actually knows that's who's behind these personas though, do they?

I think frogs get a raw deal.

The tadpoles get attacked by fish.
The froglets get eaten by birds and even spiders.
The adult frogs get attacked by cats or run over.
My neighbour thinks they're poisonous

They are quite harmless and quite interesting (the frogs. Not my neighbours)
Not to mention the old lady who swallowed a fly !

Perhaps Tea Boy needs to use "AKA Oliver Donachie"? :popcorn:

There are times and places where revealing ones true identity could be dangerous for an individual and those who are close to them. Contributing to the Advertiser does not seem to be one of those situations so it says much more about the individual who has to hide behind a false name.

Intially I thought it sad that someone would use the pseudonym 'bobby wright' now that I have given it a bit more thought perhaps my great grandfather and father could be chuffed that someone has used their names.

I wonder how much longer this thread might last.

I reckon another week.

Any other estimates?

Has "Jason Reeve" gone overtly political or is Olive Dognasty up to his old tricks again?

Bashing the judiciary was also a particular favourite of 20 Eye's, mind you,  there's not more than a fag papers difference between the tactic and behaviour of 20 or Olive, so it doesn't matter much which is which or whether it's neither imho  :)

You are joking, they get feckin shedloads of Euros to prop up their bloody peasant farmers making their stinky cheese in their unfathomable toilets.

They can stick their crappy skinny chips up their bums as well.

Or, have I misunderstood again?

By PVRA, do you mean the Priory Vale residents association as set up by Olive Donachie, and run by Olive Donachie for the apparently exclusive political use of himself and wife/partner Cllr Faramarzi, with carefully orchestrated guest appearances by Fionualala Foley & Co?

If so I encourage readers to visit www pvra.info* to have a look for themselves.  It's as much a genuine residents association as I am an olympic pole vaulter  :wink:


It's an overtly political blog with pretensions towards creating a fanbase of residents in thrall of Olive 'n' Emma, (not likely), but let's surprise Olive anyway by doubling his readership in one afternoon :)

On the face of it, without digging too deep, it would look like a reasonable web page for a residents association. 

However it does state that it is not Political but reserves the right to work with any policial party to get the best for the community it serves - my interpretation of their words - that's legal -just! Providing it's not too attached to the political party and it would be hard to prove otherwise if the Donachies/Famarazzi's are holding the keys to the web site.

And I hope that they realise that even if they are not a registered charity, they are expected to behave like one, especially if raising money. I could look up the section of the latest Charity Act if need be.

I also notice that they keep the right to 'meet' via email etc. but there is no clause to say that the minutes of that will be published right away, or indeed if minutes will be kept of such meetings and how any member would know that was happening on any given month. And who would want to with an embryonic community (or five) like Prioy Vale.  In my opinion, residents would be better served by each neighbourhood having it's own community association, with maybe a Priory Vale Forum.

Some of the wording is a little flowery to that of a usual constitution. i.e. Dissolution Clause 'hoping it would not be used'

I was interested in this sentence Under the 'Equal Opportunties' Clause

"The Association will challenge any remarks or behaviour that cause offence and makes some people feel unwelcome"

Wouldn't fancy your chances if you turned up then, Geoff.

Equal opps is about so much more than Race, Religion, Ability and Gender.

I'm off to see if there is a facebook page!

Had a look at the web site ... it is a bit odd... not sure it's objectives are very clear.

But... it has a letter from Cllr Foley!

What a surprise.. I haven't seen many of these...

One for the antiques roadshow of the future perhaps?
It takes wisdom to know what you know and wisdom to know what you don't know and when to call in those who do. Often the people who do know will advise that evidence and research are very helpful when making decisions. Who knows it might even save a bit of money.

That'll be a substantial feckin pole, but it's good to have a hobby.

No offence.

Ohhhhh Oohhhh Oo Ooh
Slowly I picked my life up
Now I go and pick the wife up
She works in Marks And Spencer’s
La la la Lech Walesa

When Cupid threw her last dart
You, girl, were still in my heart
I love you more than ever
Even though I married Trevor

Lawdy lawdy.

It would appear that Olive is owed an apology and he only has one login after all
