Cuddly furry critter or one of the most vicious predators in Tameside?

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been away and very busy over the last the month or so. I arrived back yesterday and found a raft of Conservative leaflets in the mail, but none from any other political party, however I did spot who I believe to be ’K Y Marland’ on the campaign trail on Stocks Lane in Stalybridge South this afternoon; or if it wasn’t Mr Marland it was certainly a look-alike resplendent with a Labour rosette.

So, what’s new? I know Rob Adlard has a real fight on his hands now that Labour have chosen Cllr Reynolds as their PPC for Stalybridge & Hyde. I was really hoping Labour would have chosen a different candidate because I think Rob Adlard would have made a first class MP. UKIP and the BNP are fielding more candidates than in previous elections and we have the curious Shorrock v Shorrock contest in the Duki/Staly ward. Interesting times! If anyone has any election leaflets they want posting for discussion please send them to me via email.

Anyway, furry critter or vicious predator? I took these photos today. The creature in question is a stoat, or is that a weasel? I always get the two confused! Whichever of the two it is; it certainly is one of the most fearsome predators in the wild. These small furry killing machines make most other forms of native wildlife appear relatively tame. Looking at the photos (click to enlarge) you could be forgiven for thinking they are quite large, but in reality they are very small, but that does not stop them killing prey such as rabbits which are three or four times their size. They are also very curious, I was lucky enough to have the camera at hand when this fine specimen come bounding towards me. It didn’t stop until it was ten feet away, then it proceeded to have staring contest with me. Next time you are out in places where rabbits roam wild, keep your eyes open for these creatures stalking them for their next meal.

Just a quick reminder of what the judge said at the trail of racist BNP member West,he used the words Vile, offensive,and distasteful just like the little critter in the photo.

i am getting closer tc said...

hey tc where you out in the black track in carrbrook looks very similar

tonydj said...

Would that be the Bernd Kugow who posts on the web how to train dogs to go hunting? who claimed his grandmother died "in the camps"

Would that mouthy judge be Judge Alan Berg,who was a senior partner of "Canter Levin and Berg" until 1994 when he became a stipendiary magistrate.

From the website of the Liverpool firm:-
"On his return from the Second World War, Myer Julius Canter founded the firm of Solicitors which was to become Canter Levin & Berg. Mr Canter (known as "MJ") was an intermediate judge at the Nuremberg Trials and was a close friend of the then Attorney General and chief Nuremberg prosecutor, Lord Shawcross"


God help the letters page editors said...

John you dickhead, West was on trial not a trail you illiterate gobshite!

The Gang of Five said...

The Labour councillor with the criminal record will be exposed before the elections. He is not up for re-election this year, but he will never be able to stand again without the title “HYPOCRITE” being associated with his name. The leaflets and internet exposé will be devastating and long overdue.

Vote for Change said...

This is quite funny when Labour are heading to one of the biggest kickins for a generation at the ballot box they think they are going to turn over 1300 votes in the strongest Tory ward. There is more chance of the Tories taking Droylsden.
Plus the ammount of canvessing Rob and all the team have done we know our support is strong. Hardly anyone saying they are voting Labour even in Labour areas
Godley and Longdendale could be Tory gains this time along side Staly North Staly Duk and retaining Staly South and Werneth.
There is one party worried in Tameside and it is certainly not the Tories

Where's your capital letters? said...

The lack of grammar and the quick succession of posts only go to show that many of the posts above may be the work of just one person - Tameside's propaganda-in-chief.

JT said...

Stop posting under other names or being anonymous,or make the allegations in public, I do not post on here or another blog except my own on the advice of a legal firm who are monitoring various sites and have been for a while.
At 5 30 pm last night they informed me that they had enough evidence to take matters further.

Tameside Citizen said...

I have removed the post regarding an elected councillor and an allegation over “bent driving licences”. I like gossip and scandal nearly as much as the rest of the regular contributors to this blog, but to actually name a person and link them to a specific crime without presenting a shred of evidence is way out of order and very unfair. Please provide evidence or do not post such comments when using a persons real name.

You get the message yet? said...

England's still f****** dreaming it matters not a jot what is written on here. Things will never change the path for this country have been set out over Labour's time in office.
The non-white British population grew by more than half a million between 2001 and 2003, according to official figures published yesterday.

Over the same period, the white British population fell by more than 100,000, largely because of emigration and a low birth rate.

JT, the allegations have been made repeatedly for several years and have never been denied, confirmed, or the subject of legal action. Therefore people will speculate. Any legal action will result in the FULL facts coming out which, depending on the accuracy or otherwise of the allegations, will reveal the truth for public scrutiny. People with nothing to hide have nothing to worry about.

TC, re the difference between the aforementioned species: You can 'weasely' tell them apart because they're 'stoatally' different.

The false allegations against me may have been withdrawn and I am pleased you feel the way you do about them, I have a copy of them and so do others for action.
