informing the electorate of the obscene amount of money paid to useless councillors in this borough.
This letter is just one of many which has been sent anonymously to Mr West over the years. In addition to this there has been countless illegal leaflets on similar themes distributed throughout the Dukinfield Ward. I am sure long term readers of this blog will remember the courageous actions of Mr West in confronting a gang of Labour thugs, including Cllr Jim Fitzpatrick who were distributing vile smear leaflets to Roy West's neighbours on Remembrance Day.
The hate mail and leaflets are bad enough, but certainly not the only thing honest people who oppose corruption in this borough face. Mr West's disabled partner is currently being persecuted via means of malicious and vindictive eviction proceedings which were initiated by 'the usual suspects'. There was also an incident involving a shot being fired at the West's property which the householders feel did not receive the police attention such a serious matter deserved.
Other people have suffered at the hands of the local political Mafia too. People such as John Hall, another anti-corruption campaigner who has no political or personal ties with Roy West is one such example. If you click here you can read the horrifying case of the blood filled hypodermic syringes delivered to Mr Hall and the attempted cover up which followed. There is also the case of a young Conservative blogger who was arrested, computer seized and held in custody after a spurious claim of anti-Semitism was levelled against him by a current Tameside MP. The young man in question was anything but a 'racist' or anti-Semite, but that did not save him from arrest and custody.
The existence of a local political mafia with the power to disrupt the lives of truth seekers sounds like fantasy world. Ten years ago I would have never believed it to be true, but sadly subsequent events have convinced me such a plague does indeed exist within this borough. What we need is a modern and British version of Thomas E Dewey to come to Tameside and rid this borough of its pestilence and then we might then all live happily ever after.
