The Blogger is being accused of beardism in relation to claims regarding the Bristol Labour Party. Here is the case for the prosecution:
1. George Micklewright
Former LABOUR leader Bristol City Council 1997 – 2002. Created £350m budget deficit. Most shameless act: closing Merrywood School after promising it would never happen. Strangely Bearded.
2. Peter Hammond
Former LABOUR leader Bristol City Council 2004 – 2005. Created £20m deficit in social services, closed daycare services. Most shameless act: throwing a sickie to avoid presenting his own dodgy budget. Strangely Bearded.
3. Derek Pickup
LABOUR Executive Member for Education, Bristol City Council 2007. Creating more school places than children through a school rebuilding programme funded by long term debt (PFI). Most shameless act: rigging the presentation of GCSE results this summer by excluding english and maths results . Strangely Bearded.
The relationship between strange beards, Bristol Labour Party, disreputable behaviour and hopeless incompetence is clear for all to see. I rest my case m’lud.
