There is some exciting news about a new-look super-dooper Skidder coming soon folks. Watch this space!
The Friends of West Midlands Police
There has been a very worrying trend in the last few years of corrupt West Midlands Police (WMP) cosying-up to people and organisations in their police area. This is often done under the guise of "community policing" or working with "partners", whatever that means.
Leaving aside, ahem, the outright corruption in Sandwell where known criminals are allowed to carry on with impunity and where certain elements within the force itself are at pains to protect their own financial interests in drug-dealing and other organised crime there is a growing tendency of the blues becoming too close to the very people they should be collaring!
Obviously The Skidder has written at length about the corrupt links between WMP and bent Labour Sandwell Council so that Chief Constable Dave Thompson appears now to have granted total immunity from investigation - let alone prosecution - to Labour "partners". And we have seen that the likes of Rich Baker (who has moved on) and Sgt Gary Crapwell were the willing puppets of ex-Labour Council Leader Steve "Squealing" Eling and disgraced former Chief Executive [sic] Jan Britton. (Though to be fair to "Rich", as The Milkman called him, he did eventually see the light and tell him to "do one".)
I was present at a meeting when an officer showed Cllr Bob Piper what he described as "unredacted" intelligence of activity by criminal gangs in Sandwell at a Licensing Committee meeting. I am not suggesting Piper is corrupt (though he is an arrogant p*ss-taker) but what is going on here?
Turning the situation around several sources have told The Skidder that bent cops are warning "their" taxi-driver mules of SMBC "spot-checks" so that they can avoid them.
The question for "Dave" and the bent blues is whether Sandwell Labour are the only ones getting preferential treatment in the Borough. I very much doubt it and the rule of law seems not to apply to certain individuals and companies. It's one rule for one...
All this partiality descends into farce eg. the five plus years the bent blues have been attempting to close this blog down and criminalise me and eg. when they put up incessant photos of themselves sat on their arses taking tea and biscuits with their "partners" at Sandwell College one day and then whining and giving themselves "special powers" when college kids run riot or shoot fireworks at them the next!
As above, I have had over 5 years of harassment (which is continuing even now) from this shower and it is obvious that many officers are bone idle. Anyone reading the excellent Facebook Group page, "I Live in West Bromwich" will be appalled at the daily litany of car thefts, attempted and actual burglaries, criminal damage etc. The running theme throughout all these reports is that the cops won't even bother to pick up the phone let alone investigate what are quite clearly some serious and traumatic incidents.
And you don't just have to take my word for the pathetic service:
Many of you will have seen that WMP had to issue an grovelling apology recently for their aggressive conduct towards a customer in the Oldbury Sainsburys. I wonder why they were in there acting as tapayer-funded security for the supermarket giant in the first place? Perhaps this astonishing tweet from Oldbury Police gives us a clue:
Just think about this effort - tweeted in police time - for a minute. WMP are bigging-up TWO private businesses. Why could Sainsburys' not simply donate the stuff direct to the foodbank rather than through a third party (and two carrier bags full isn't a bad return for having unpaid WMP security as above.) And why the f*ck are taxpayer-funded police employees going round delivering stuff instead of dealing with actual CRIME????
Because of their corrupt relationship, Sandwell Labour will not try to bring WMP to book and neither will the ludicrous Labour "Police and Crime Commissioner", Jamieson. But at least the new Tory MP's are beginning to find their feet and only the other day WBE's Nicola Richards asked a question in the House of Commons about the rampant crime in West Brom. The Minister for Crime and Policing responded thus:
So there you are - "it is a shocker" and Dave Thompson should "pay attention". The Tories MP's need to keep on top of this and you too readers should keep 'em peeled. YOU are paying for this police "service" so raise your voices and insist they do the job they are paid to do. If they don't - contact James Morris, Shaun Bailey or Nicola Richards if you live in their areas. If Labour's Spellar is your MP you can just go and f*ck yourselves!
Piper Offends Again?
Bob Piper is a vile man but he seems to have had a sudden conversion of late. Bob has been a virulent critic of all things Israeli on Twitter - possibly even worse than Cllr John "Jedward" Edwards. But as the Labour Party seeks to expel the antisemites Piper's Twitter feed has been mysteriously wiped by hands unknown and the last reference to Israel is in 2011! I am sure Bob is not "antisemitic" - he just doesn't like Israel or people who live their lol - and has only been espousing a pro-Palestian view point.
Piper was, of course, caught out when, and I sh*t ye not, he was Chair of the Licensing Committee but walked into Oldbury Wetherspoons and made a Nazi Salute and shouted "Seig Heil". His "defence", as I understand it, was that it was this was directed at a non-Jewish "right-winger" but how he knew no-one else was Jewish in the crowded pub and very likely to be offended is beyond me. Happily it was not beyond his pals in the bent blues who duly let him off.
Wealthy "socialist" Bob cannot walk past anyone he dislikes (which is, seemingly, most of humanity) without having a dig. Now that he is apparently too scared to have a go at the Jews he has decided instead to mock and insult a Muslim man at prayer! What a piece of work eh readers?
Sandwell Day of Action - 3rd April, 2021
Various folk are planning events on the above date - which coincides with 47 years of Labour failure since the Frankenstein-like creation of "Sandwell" - to protest against the Dictatorship and offer a positive way forward for local folk.
Care must be exercised on two fronts. Firstly, any events, demos and protests should be planned with Covid social-distancing in mind as there may well be restrictions still in place. Secondly, any party political events should stick in their own factions since Labour will try and may adverse comments if parties act together. You may think this is weird in a democracy but this is what the sleazy "socialists" do. Just look at the trouble these sh*tbags tried to cause when the parties gathered to meet local people at Lion Farm objecting to Labour's bent plan to destroy the Fields there.
I hope we can have a communal gathering at some point in the day - possibly a socially distanced walk down West Brom High Street to the cop shop - before going off around the Borough to spread enlightenment.
If you are planning an event - and I hope all six towns will be participating against the Labour Poverty Ghetto - please let The Skidder know so that it can be advertised on here and other channels.
I was hoping to have the inaugral "Skidder Awards Ceremony" this November but am now planning to try and get a venue for the late afternoon on 3rd April, 2021 so that all participants in the Day of Action can wind down and have a laugh together!
I also hope that any Independent candidates standing in the Council elections next May will make themselves known to me and I hope to help them meet and greet folk in their wards on that day (see further below).
Just as a matter of interest the Green Party seem to have totally disappeared in Sandwell which is surprising noting that after 47 years control by Labour it is an environmental disaster-zone and their continuing desperation to destroy green spaces across the Borough. Does anyone know if they have any presence at all now locally?
A couple of candidates have broken cover already. Firstly, Lisa Done is standing in Great Bridge. I hope to interview her and give you a short bio in due course but, in the meantime, you can follow Lisa on Twitter at @lisadone2012 and on Facebook.
Secondly, Wayne Trinder is standing in Friar Park. Many of you will know Wayne from his role - with a fantastic team of locals - in the community's great victory over Network Rail's plan (given the nod initially by Sandwell Labour) to plonk a concrete-sleeper factory next to housing at Bescot. Carol White and many others fought tooth and nail to destroy the Labour plan and, when the strength of local feeling became known, a few jittery Labour Councillors suddenly found it expedient to then oppose the plan! A small team, including Wayne, presented the community's objections to the Council planning committee quite brilliantly and won the day! Please consider befriending Wayne on Facebook! Wayne had a little problem accessing his old Facebook account recently and so send your requests to the account with this profile pic:
(1) Roway Lane Contact Centre
I am hearing rumblings of discontent about the working conditions for staff at this venue. If anyone needs to contact The Skidder the details below (including postal address.)
(2) Forces Support Charity Shop, Carters Green.
I have received a number of messages from folk who have attempted to drop off items at this unit and ended up with parking tickets from a private car park operator. You have been warned! If anyone has had a ticket please let me know.
Keep well, y'all!
