You will have a much better debate on this site and nobody will try to contact your employer if you say something they don't like.  O0

Unless you are employed by Swindon Borough Council, Swindon Commercial Services or Thamesdown Transport, (which are wholly owned by Swindon Borough Council).

If you are employed by either, and dare to say something which Mr Bluh's political administration does not approve of, you can expect Cllr Williams and his colleagues to do their utmost to find you and monitor everything you do and say until they have gathered enough material on you to make you malleable. Then they will pounce without warning and deliberately deny you the opportunity to gather your thoughts or discuss your/their actions with an appropriate representative present.

If you don't work for any of the above you have nothing to worry about :)

Wot .... The SBC thought police. Haven't found me out yet.... Luckilyso far, everytime 'they ' try to out people at SCS they get it sadly wrong.

Cllr Williams needs to get his facts right rather than jumping to the wrong conclusions.

Like the rest of that sorry shower the sooner the incompetent ones ate found out for what they are

The current comment on the Adver site demonstrates Robfm trying to track my current employment.

He has also substituted "bobby" with "bob".

He must know full well the significance of doing so.

Mentioning the war, any war in fact, is fine.

What upsets the cretins is when they do something, or behave in a way which reminds you of something done by Hitlers political party activists...and you point out that one reminds you of the other.

Apparently some politicians consider it 'vile' to notice and pass comment on them when they behave like right bastards. That it's the Right Wing doing both the behaving and the complaining seems historically ironic to me....

...Like Peter Sutcliffe complaining about being called a hammer wielding prostitute murdering nutcase.

Still, as long as we all do what they tell us, and not do as they do, I'm sure we'll all be fine :)

Hello Geoff,
May I just ask the following :

This web forum has many many members and guests and has been running for a very long time from what I can make of it.
If Cllrs  and others have an issue with this forum, why have they not tried to engage with members of the public by creating their own forum?

I am sure I read something a long time ago in the SA that some Cllrs were thinking about doing this?  please quote me if I am wrong.
I will have a look in the SA archive to try and establish who it was and why it has not happened.

This is obviously a very popular site and certainly thriving.
I would just like to back track and see who came up with the idea of  a council forum and why this did not happen!

Because they only want to engage with very specific MOP on very specific issues and want absolute editorial control. Also they engage firms like Digital City for their IT aspirations. Their version of engagement does not require responses.

It'll never happen, they won't even broadcast what they get up to in the Council Chamber which in my view should absolutely be in the public domain.

Could be done for a fraction for what was spunked on WiFi.

With reference to the life of the adver, has anyody else today bought the adver, 42p and its full of the football club and nothing else, I thought, when I picked it up from the front door, that it was a flyer for someone, and then realised it was the adver, and they have also now cancelled out the 'your say' comments on the web site.

" and they have also now cancelled out the 'your say' comments on the web site."

Does this mean that if we now want a letter to appear in the Adver we have to resort to pen, paper, and postage?

Or is it the demise of "Your Say", limiting comments to the Adver comments forum?

If so, has Robfm been told  ;D

Have a heart Ko, I can't stand football, but they do have something to crow about at present. And what else was gogin on in this appalling weather - except the Dawn Chorus event and the start of the Swindon Literature Festival of course.

You're safe in Swindon then.

C'mon you Blues.

Just saying.

with ref to the letters, you can still send them in either by letter (50p stamp), or email, but you cant now read what has been printed or is for publication in future copies. just sems a bit off, or perhaps they dont want to let you know whats coming !!.
