Why we need to control our own borders

Yesterdays fenland Citizen reported a perfect example of why we need to control our own borders.

Basically, a foreigner came over here and attacked two people really badly and received a six year prison sentence for grievous bodily harm.

The culprit, Sergejs Zorins, 36, had been drinking in Daphne Court, Wisbech with another man when he smashed a glass in the other mans face, stamped on his head and used the broken glass to cut his throat. He then punched a woman who tried to intervene before stamping on her head several times.

There is no reason for Zorins to ever be in this country, he has no skills or abilities that are in short supply, and as a violent thug we will be better off when he is deported after serving his prison sentence.

Quite frankly, any fool who tries to excuse this behaviour and supports open borders is nothing more than a window licking dolt.

In other news, conservative controlled Fenland District council are debating putting up the council tax by 1.99%. What a bunch of wasters, how about the council spending less taxpayers money for a change. Its not as though the council does much that is useful or needed.

Local foaming lefty John Smithee had another comedy letter in the paper where he claims that capitalism will eventually create giant global corporations. As usual Smithee doesn’t understand that only govts can allow this to happen by stopping the free market. Because in a free market there will always be new businesses formed to take on the larger corporations.

Cllr Alan Lay is innocent and Steve Tierney is a bully

Fridays Wisbech Standard reports on the end of the sorry saga of cllr Alan Lay being accused of bringing the council into disrepute by cllr Steve Tierney.

Alan Lay has been totally cleared and it is Steve Tierney who is not only left with egg on this face but appears to be a bully.

Quite frankly, it is sour grapes on Tierneys part because Mr Lay unseated him on Cambs County Council where Tierney was seen as one of the rising stars. If you take into account the councillors allowance that Tierney has lost over the four years it amounts to well over £60,000. No wonder Tierney has it in for cllr Lay.

What a sore loser.

However, coming back to the hearing, Cllr Rob Scolding was scathing, complaining “I feel they are playing games with us” and added “This is a form of bullying”.

At this point, enquiring minds will wonder what on earth happened. Let me explain.

At a meeting in November while the council was talking about disabled access the mayor cllr Gary Tibbs said to cllr Lay “I am going to advise you to be extremely careful about what you are going to say next after what you have just heard”, while standing up and pointing at him.

(At this point let me introduce a legal point, an ‘assault’ is the threat of force  (a ‘battery’ is the application of force), why did cllr Tibbs stand up and point at cllr Lay whilst telling him to be careful. Cllr Tibbs did not need to stand up and point, did his standing up and pointing make the frail 78 year old cllr Lay afraid?)

At a meeting in December, cllr Lay said he had been threatened by cllr Tibbs.

Cllr Tierney took exception to this saying it brings the council into disrepute and made the complaint.

During the hearing where cllr Lay was totally and entirely cleared, cllr David Mason reminded the meeting about the time cllr Tierney thrust a camera into cllr Lays face. Cllr Scolding reported that in the paperwork for the case he was unhappy to read words like “lazy Lay” and “scumbag”.

Steve Tierney is a bully.

Shame on him.

He is less of a man than Alan lay.

Sad.

Brian Ford the conceited prof, nice man Alan Lay and the arrest of Kit Carson on charges of kiddie fiddling

Fridays Wisbech Standard was a mixed bag.

Eastrea resident Professor Brian Ford was moaning about the lack of busses. I have a simple answer to Brian, if you want more busses then fund them yourself instead of wanting the taxpayer to cough up. No doubt the erudite prof has been overthinking such elementary, uncomplicated, straightforward and transparent matters.

The continuing saga of Alan Lay being harassed by the local tories rumbles on. I have no idea if Mayor cllr Gary Tibbs used threatening language to Mr Lay but he did do to me. And I do know the tories were extremely put out by his election victory over them and have been unpleasant to him. It is hilarious to think the tories are saying that Alan Lay in any way threatened them, he is a 78 year old man and looks correspondingly frail. I know Alan Lay, he is far too placid and nice to do anything like that.

Having said that Mr Lay is great friends with well known loony lefty couple the Buckners and shares most of their warped views. Indeed when Mr Lay was Fenlands UKIP chairman he made sure that no UKIP candidates stood against the Buckners in a district council election. So perhaps its karma.

Many years ago I used to play a football management game on my computer called Football Manager. I never started as one of the big teams like Man U or Chelsea or even the biggest club in the world Barcelona, that would have been too easy. I always started in the lower leagues and tried to get promotion. As such the club I managed was always suffering from lack of decent players and coaches. Therefore I always tried to improve my players by bringing in a couple of new coaches  for the first few years. One coach in particular was Kit Carson a journeyman coach around the lower leagues who in the game always started as unemployed so i could get him cheaply and he was good enough for the first few years. Imagine my surprise when I read about his arrest on alleged charges of sexual assault on children.

FDC back down on being nasty to renters

In a stunning turn of events in a private meeting, a backbench rebellion by conservative councillors has forced Fenland District Council into a humiliating climb down on being nasty to people who rent.

The proposal to licence all landlords at a cost of over £575 would have simply been passed on by the landlords to their tenants, who, let’s be frank, usually are poor people who simply can’t afford to buy which is why they rent.

This would have done nothing to stop bad landlords and would have been additional incentive for good landlords to not be active in Wisbech. Indeed, if the council where actually serious about helping tenants they would argue for a totally free market with no restrictions to entry thus ensuring full competition. Good landlords would therefore be able to outcompete the bad ones and standards would go up across the board.

Cabinet member cllr David Oliver is clearly away with the fairies if he sincerely believes licencing of rental properties would have any effect on rogue landlords who ignore the law anyway. Cllr Oliver has always struck me as a fat oaf, totally out of his depth.

So three cheers to cllrs Tierney, Hoy and others for stopping the council putting up the rent on poor people.

Continued waste from Fenland District Council and Rosie Stevenson, a virtue signalling idiot.

Yesterdays Fenland Citizen had a wraparound advertising Fenland District Councils four leisure centres. This would have cost about £6,000 and is a complete waste of everybody’s council tax. Indeed, the fees collected from leisure centre users doesn’t even cover the running costs. This year council tax payers will be forced to cough up an additional £602,000. Imagine that, everybody’s council tax could be cut by 8% if only the council didn’t subsidise the four white elephants. But wait, every few years the council likes to refurbish the facilities, next year the council are going to spend a whopping £900,000.

There are plenty of commercial gyms in the Fenland area, the council does not have to compete with them.

When will the councillors and voters see sense, it is hardly an essential service unlike bin collections, is it.

Another story that caught my eye was a report about smugly self satisfied Rosie Stevenson of Leverington who is planning to take a gap year before going to uni. She is asking for £6,200 to go to Honduras. My problem with this is that she is merely virtue signalling about enjoying a jolly gap year, it is not really about helping Hondurans. After all £6,200 is more than enough to fully fund a proper qualified Honduran teacher for a year but then Rosie wouldn’t be able to get her picture in the paper and the charity that plan these trips wouldn’t be able to pay their staff.

Indeed, Rosie is quoted as saying after uni she wants to be “delivering humanitarian aid and campaigning for the right to education for all”. IOW she wants to use the power and force of the state to spend other peoples money. What a silly little virtue signalling airhead she is.
