Bristow falls into leader's trough

Tory H&F cabinet member Paul Bristow has written a lengthy blog defending his leader, Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, for getting paid £5,000 extra for doing something he should have been doing already (see Fat Controller blog below).

Cllr Bristow still doesn't explain why an additional payment is being made to the leader of the council. Ironically he suggests that the payment to the 'lead member for recruitment' is deserved because the council is getting rid of lots of jobs!

What Cllr Bristow also fails to declare is that not only is Cllr Greenhalgh his leader but he is also his employer. Obviously a key worker.

Dear HF Conwatch

I'm not sure if you saw this below but I posted this on Bristow's blog and he deleted it. He obviously does not enjoy being on the end of the type of criticism that he doles out to others. Classic behaviour of a bully.

This is what I said:

"Mr. Bristow

This is really small-minded and a very spiteful little story designed to imply that Lisa Homan will stop being an Askew councillor.

I am actually quite amazed at your hypocrisy and lack of judgement as you have (by your own accounts) been unsuccessfully trying to get parliamentary seats all over the country pretty much immediately after you were first elected which is still only under two years ago. Does this mean that you're planning to step down from being a councillor as your friend Ed suggests?

I also understand that you appeared in a TV programme for wannabe MPs five or six years ago, when you were in your early twenties and in which you made a complete fool of yourself. Nobody more than you sums up the empty-headed, chinless, privilidged ambition that sadly calls many into Tory politics these days.

I hear that you have been rejected by Tory Associations in London, Essex and elsewhere. I understand why.

At least Lisa has served as a councillor for nearly ten years and very works hard for her Askew constituents.

Very poor work Mr. Bristow. Very poor.

Not sure if anyone saw Councillor Paul Bristow’s Wikipedia entry. He wrote it himself, then posted it on the web encyclopaedia only to find that the Wikipedia people deleted it leaving a note to say that he was not of any note and so could not have an entry. Talk about ambitious self promotion.

What a Tory!

Hey Stephen - firts time poster, longtime reader.

Sorry - do not understand this - I do not have a wikipedia entry and to my knowledge never had?

I would not be sure how to even make one?

Welcome Paul.

Perhaps James Simmonds could expand on his allegation?

Here is Paul Bristow's self-nominated ex-Wikipedia entry:

It is now in Wikibin along with all the other rejects, which is where it belongs!

Well, yes of course. Another nice property to buy. Have those properties come on the market in say 6 months time. Can you manage that?

Is the public toilet at Fulham Broadway going to be sold off?
