BBC Wiltshire item on development
« on: November 29, 2012, 09:48:44 AM »
Anyone else hear this.?

I caught the end as the presenter thanked Oliver Donachie, Chairman of the Priory Vale Residents Association.

What was his input i wonder?

Didn't hear what Olive had to spout, but Does anyone know how many genuine resident members Olive's PVRA has?

Ah, I'm told that the PVRA has less members than the WiFi'sco had paying customers. This may or may not be true - I have no idea and even less interest to be honest, but I am interested in why the chairman of a residents association which appears to exist mostly in cyberspace and/or Olive's head would be waxing lyrical about Swindon developments.

Shouldn't it be his wife, the councillor, or is she no longer trusted after her role in the Tadpole lane betrayal?

I wonder if his wife realises what he gets up to on the adver site.

Would she approve or be embarrassed?

Well, they have a 'flexible' attitude towards other peoples log-ins, usernames and passwords, so who's to say some of those comments aren't made by Cllr Faramarzi herself?

Considering that 'membership' of the PVRA is apparently 'virtual' I'd be very cautious about submitting any personal data to either of them via email, blog comments or membership form unless I knew exactly who the data controller is, and who else might get or be 'given' access to it.

I'm also told that Olive wants residents who are tenants of SBC to supply details of their tenancy before they can contribute to PVRA on issues that affect them.

Sounds like Olive is either a control freak, nosey or looking to create influence and control.....or perhaps all of those.

"I'm also told that Olive wants residents who are tenants of SBC to supply details of their tenancy before they can contribute to PVRA on issues that affect them"

Maybe the membership of PVRA is open Swindon wide, (which would be odd and questionable) if not then as far as I know there are no SBC tenants living in that whole area.......all social housing over there would be under the control of Housing Associations. 

However, Oliver has busied himself with tenants issues over on the SBC housing facebook page.

By his attitude on the Adver pages I would guess conrol freak and add bully to the list.
Problem with being a bully is that it only works if the "victims" are afraid of the bully or have something to lose.

I have often mentioned that I have no political connections and my acceptance of his "rendesvouz" at a previous Mela was quickly denied.

On a plus note, my picture was in Mondays' Adver' so perhaps he/they will get my name right in future.
