Adver comments - I wonder who 'bobby wright' is?
« on: March 26, 2012, 08:43:54 PM »
I wonder who this 'bobby wright' character on the Adver comments section is, as 'he' seems awful upset with talkswindon (I assume he means TS as I can't find a site called trashswindon) :idiot2: as this rant shows:

Quote
If the vile gentlemen and women of trashswindon get their noses into it, then they’re bound to start throwing wild accusations of corruption and underhanded deals around that will scare off yet more potential investors in Swindon.

About time these Muppets were held to account with an AK47

So I thought I'd give him something else to get upset about  >:D

I can't help but wonder if a Tory councillor or associate/propagandist is behind the pseudonym. Personally I can't see why a normal person would get upset by  talkswindon. In the same way that when the Telegraph exposed the MPs expenses scandal Joe Public wasn't angry at the paper but rather at the MPs. The only people who were upset with the paper were those with their noses in the troughs. 

Having a pseudonym very similar to the name of Labour Cllr. Bob Wright is mightily iffy as well, why do that if you're a normal member of the public?

I wonder about Always Grumpy as well...

'Vile Gentlemen' has a certain ring to it as well, I believe I have heard that before.

Spelling is unusually consistent as well.

Could be Bob Wright has gone bonkers, though I doubt it, so it's a pop at TS and maybe a niggle at it's supposed Labour bias.

It's not me either.

Even though you are all pinkos as anyone knows.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

I liked the irony of a right-wing-nutter-to-the-point-of-being-fascist advocating the use of an AK47 to hold members of the public to account for scrutinising a democraticly corrupt council.

Any decent insurgent knows the AK47u is a better choice of weapon for urban work.  Amateurs, eh?

Its not me. I do write to the letter page and the Adver kindly prints most of the letters. I have to give my name and address etc and I send these by the email address I use for public communication.

I do expect to be called bonkers now and again.

There is no doubt Talkswindon has changed but I think that this has come about because of experience. I still find I am challenged by contributors with a different view and political leanings.

In my view, the word  'Vile' is what I would use to describe paedophiles,  sex offenders, men or women who get pleasure out of beating their partners because they want to control them, sex pests, and cruel evil people who torture,  kill or maim animals and old people for fun. 

I would in fact use the words 'Vile Scum'.

Well I suppose to even think about using an Ak47 to bring us Muppet to account is quite a sick thought for someone to have. Now most posters on TS as far as I am aware use the forum to discuss and debate topics that are current within Swindon and within government.

OK there have been posts on here by posters that sometimes make you think oh dear and is cringe material,  the same as if you read the adver site. However I don't think anyone has felt the urge to post that they want to sort people out with an Ak47 before!

This individual or persons appear to hold a grudge and its a tad worrying.

It bothers me to think that normal people are being judged for posting on things they believe in. And why shouldn't they. 

I think there will be more to come - why can't people just be nice!

Always Grumpy never misses an opportunity to have a go at me on the Adver website about the Coate campaign - and his postings go back for years. I'm sure that he is rabid conservative supporter if not a councillor.

I've seen those descriptions over on facebook and whilst I don't mind being lumped as 'vile' ?????   

I do object to the trashswindon bit. 

With very few exceptions the grumbles on here are not about Swindon itself, quite the reverse, it seems most of us care deeply about what's happening to it and therefore what we are trashing is Swindon Borough council trashing of our town, and even then only a part of SBC - where the buck stops.

No doubt someone is looking and asking questions, considering how vile we are, it seems some are very interested in who we are.

About time these Muppets were held to account with an AK47

This is a thinly veiled death-threat .  If he repeats this threat, his posting should be reported to the Police. I’m fairly sure that issuing threats is a public order offence.

However, for now, I doubt that we should take this threat seriously but you can never tell with nutters, which in my book includes political and religious extremists.

It is curious, that to seek the outcome where this person is comfortable, i.e. no scrutinising of a council, he considers the use of an AK47.

To those who are not familiar (which are few and far between in this world) this is a military assault rifle invented by a Russian and supplied widely from Russian, Chinese and North Korean factories to governments and terrorist organisations around the world, who coincidently, also do not like scrutiny of what they do. The AK47 has probably been used to kill and suppress more people than any other man-made device in history. That is when the weapon is used in it's intended military role. As examples of assassinations and attempted assassinations by ex Soviet Block agents over the last 20 odd years show, they never choose the AK47.

(Personally I don’t rate the AK47. It can be used by almost anyone, can survive ill treatment and infrequent cleaning but it still a piece of inaccurate cr*p, which is also difficult to conceal in an urban environment. For these last two reasons I don’t think that bob wright has a clue about weapons and if he did get hold of an AK47, would put himself in more danger than anyone else, which might stop him posting anything, anywhere again. So there may be an upside!)

I think we need to point out that you're referring to 'Bobby Wright' (The Troll residing under the virtual arches of the Adver comments bridge), and not the genuinely corporeal form of Bob Wright, Labour councillor of Central. :)

The real Bob Wright is much more of a gentle-Gentleman.


On the subject of threats.....

I've received several threats since Talkswindon started in 2006.  Without exception they have all originated from individuals directly involved with or closely attached to the political & commercial dealings of the Conservative dominated council administration.

A good example of one would be: (I make no apology for reproducing this verbatim)

I'm certainly not the only vocal swindon person to receive threats, (veiled or direct), over very recent years and one of the common triggers appears to be the potential interruption in the flow of money and/or land moving from public ownership and control into the hands of private enterprise, as caused by the public scrutiny of the same. 

If readers reflect on the above, and then consider it against a likely future picture of Swindon Police Officers standing guard at council meetings and developers 'consultation' events, (consider HabOakus for example), then I'm sure some will recognise the that 'maintaining public order and keeping the peace' are quickly becoming synonymous with the deliberate suppression of public enquiry, scrutiny, challenge and debate. The Croft debacle is a perfect and current example of this in action. It won't be long before the Police start appearing at any 'event' connected to Cllr Bluh's Pop-Up School proposals.

Tbh, (and going back to the Adver's 'Bobby Wright'), I like it when some associates and supporters of this administration lash out and make threats openly because the more people that bear witness to their behaviour the better, and the quicker Swindon people will grasp why they ought to reject what is being offered as 'Conservatism' here. 

Moderate conservatives within the Council have no influence or control over the ones in control, and the ones in control are actually out of control, corrupting local democracy to their own ends and behaving as if they cannot be held accountable for their blighting of local lives, land and livelihoods.

Some Conservative Councillors, (and their few remaining minions), are becoming increasingly fascist in my honest opinion and I think my previous analogys and examples look more apt by the day.  I expect their behaviour and actions to get steadily worse as we approach Mays elections, (if they think they are going to fare badly), and head rapidly towards atrocious if they hold onto control of the council until the next local elections in 2014.

Dark times ahead.

Would appear that 'Bobby Wright' has been around for a while.

Just did a quick search of Google and he has commented on at least 6 articles since August last year ... but does appear to be upping his comments of late ...

Wasn't it a copy of the innovative German Assault rifle of WWII vintage? Dumbed down for cheap production and use by poorly trained peasant soldiers.

My heads full of this stuff and sometimes I hear it talking.

But I'm not Bobby.

Thanks Geoff. I should have clarified that myself.

Bob Wright is a person, I believe of good character, who is a Councillor on Swindon Borough Council. I refer to him using capital letters for each part of his name as is correct for a "Proper Noun" i.e. a name, a place etc.

I used bob wright, using lower case letters for each part of the term, for our scumbag Adver contributor as it is unlikely to be his name and so it is a "Common Noun". I use the term "scumbag" as an adjective. How fitting

So for the avoidance of any doubt; we have, "Councillor Bob Wright" and "scumbag bob wright". They are different people and we would dearly like to know who the second one is. (How fitting the English language can be!)

Funny you should say that. They've only gone and put scaffolding and ladders on the two at work.

Bit provocative I thought.

Though with my eyesight there's nothing to fret about even if I was moved to correct what I thought was a political imbalance with firearms.

SLR in my view but that's been done elsewhere.

Re the eyesight, according to recent tests, no change, so how come I can't feckin see?

I guess we all have an idea of the most likely candidate behind the real identity of Mr 'Wright'. There's only been one or two people that aggressive, rude and wilfully antagonistic on TS - and it doesn't take a detective to spot the common use of language and shared political slant between them and the current batch of Adver political sock-puppets...

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it - [attributed to] Voltaire... 'Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessita' - William of Occam.... 'You have a right to feel offended, but just cos you are offended doesn't mean you are right'
