Ooh, you are aw­ful

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

I think it is a shame that Labour coun­cil­lors Matthew Ma­habadi and Richard Fer­ris are stand­ing down from the city coun­cil. What­ever you think of their pol­i­tics they came across as ded­i­cated peo­ple who cared for the city. In a part­ing shot they hit out at anti-semitism and bul­ly­ing in their own party, which was duly re­ported by the PT. This up­set some of their sup­port­ers who made noises that in fact the main rea­son for their de­par­tures was the ‘toxic’ at­mos­phere at the coun­cil caused by the rul­ing Tories. This was also re­ported by the PT but not given the same promi­nence. Why would it? Do bears go to the toi­let in the woods? Or to put it an­other way – politi­cians not lik­ing what their op­po­nents say or do is not earth-shat­ter­ing news. If the be­hav­iour of the Tories is the main rea­son the pair stepped down, I don’t think Labour will gain con­trol of the Town Hall any time soon.
