14 July (Part 2) - Authoritarian Betts

I used to think I was quite good at remembering what subjects had been covered in old blogs. I can remember which day it was when Teresa O’Neill decided a metaphor by Hugh Neal (Arthur Pewty, Pitchforks and Flaming Torches) was me threatening arson. I can tell you exactly where I was when news of councillor Peter Craske’s arrest broke and I do not have to look up the URL for the lying Cheryl Bacon’s infamous ‘Closed Session’.

However with the number of blogs set to go over 3,000 later this week my memory is very often letting me down. It took a reader to remind me that councillor Nigel Betts is not the normally quiet nonentity which I assumed until last week when he advocated council law breaking. He has been so inclined before.

When former deputy leader Colin Campbell was campaigning to have FOI requesters ‘named and shamed’ it was councillor Nigel Betts who was egging him on.

I managed to find a brief reference to it in a five year old blog, (paragraphs 3 and 4). Once a despot, always a despot.
