    And you have?

    You can't even speak proper English. That sentence is littered with poor punctuation and doesn't even make sense.

    Yet another disenchanted Labour group wally with a brain the size of a pea.

    All your lot do is hurl insults at folk and make up stories about them. I see on another thread, you are claiming to know my son. I have a young son who is nothing to do with politics. Not even voting age so that's a low blow on your part, bringing my children into it. And he isn't pictured anywhere for your information.

    You claim you know me but as you, like some of these other Labour idiots, are posting under a pseudonym that puts me at a disadvantage. However, if you know me (or think you do) then you know where I am a lot of the time because you will be in the same place.

    Say it to my face in front of witnesses. Whatever bile it is, let's see how brave you are away from the safety of the internet.

    I know who you are and I know why you're so rattled. Because your lot cannot get the information they need to sink UKIP. I also know who your fifth columnist is but he is an idiot as well so gets a lot of the information wrong.

    I know more than you think..

    Your comments are too transparent and your command of English so bad you could only be one of a handful of people known to me. All idiots.

    A lot of these other turnips who post on here are your little helpers but they're just as barmy as you.

    In point of fact, you don't know me at all; you know nothing of any significance about me, my life, my innermost thoughts, my family or my work - because all you lot do is make up cr@p about people then pass it off as the truth.

    Like I say, got anything to say... an axe to grind, say it to my face but if it involves allegations you'd better have concrete evidence that would stand up in a court of law and you had better have the confidence to say it in front of witnesses (including mine.

    Otherwise shut it.

    As for your comments on here, as I say, your standard of English is so pathetically bad that nobody with an iota of common sense or intelligence can possibly take you seriously.

    Face to face I would wipe the floor with you in seconds..and you know

    Now do us all a favour and jog on."

Talks over Castle Point Council's future coalition break down after Ukip and Independents walk away from "divided" Conservatives

MAJOR talks over the future running of Castle Point Council have broken down.

The council faces months of uncertainty and slow decision making as it looks set to be run by the Conservative Party, which doesn’t have a majority.

Negotiations for a coalition, in which all parties elected to the council would take part in running it, fell through last week when they had barely begun.

The Canvey Island Independent Party and Ukip have slammed the Tory party for being “divided” after its leadership election, which saw Colin Riley and Bill Sharp installed as leader and deputy by just two and three votes respectively.

Former deputy council leader Jeffrey Stanley had been favourite to take over.

Ukip county councillor Jamie Huntman, who acts as spokesman for his party’s borough councillors, said: “We won’t be entering into a coalition with the Conservatives.

“They had a meeting the other day where they elected a new leader and there are unhappy people within their group. It’s best for us to stay outside that.”

Dave Blackwell, leader of the Canvey Independent group, said: “I’ve spoken to Tories who are totally unhappy with what’s going on in their party.

“We’re not prepared to enter into a coalition that might blow up in a couple of months.”

Responding to claims a minority administration could struggle to get anything voted through the council chamber he added: “If they put forward policies that we feel will be for the benefit of the whole community, we will support them.

“We’re not going to be a group that goes in there to cause destruction.”

However, Mr Riley denied there was an issue in his group.

He said: “It’s unfortunate if Dave Blackwell and (Ukip leader on the borough council) Alan Bayley are making it difficult by saying they’re not prepared to work with us.

“It’s just unfortunate. We’re not going to let that stop us.

“I and Bill Sharp were elected in an open and democratic process.

“We’re not divided, they’re trying to scare people. We are all Conservatives and we’re definitely not divided.”

He added an administration needed to be formed soon to get work going on the council again.

He said: “I can’t speak too much about the future until we meet all Conservative members on Monday evening.

“The planning committee is so far behind, we’ve got to get it up and running again.”

Following the election, Castle Point Council is now made up of 20 Conservatives, 16 Canvey Independent Party members and five Ukip councillors, meaning no one party has overall control.
