Felmores bail hostel’s future discussed

Echo: Bail hostel’s future discussed Bail hostel’s future discussed

LABOUR’S Parliamentary candidates for Basildon have visited the revamped probation trust to discuss the controversial Felmores Bail Hostel.

Gavin Callaghan, the party’s candidate for Basildon and Billericay, and MikeLe-Surf,who is vying for the South Basildon and East Thurrock seat, visited the new-look Essex Community Rehabilitation Company. They spoke about the controversial Pitsea hostel – which under new laws, is going under Government control.

Campaigners have been battling to have the building moved for years, and Basildon Council’s previous Tory administration had been locked in negotiations with the Probation Trust.

Mr Callaghan said: “It is hard to know what effect the change will have on relocation efforts because many people in the Ministry of Justice will not be familiar with this facility and the sensitivities that surround its current unsuitable site.

“Mike and I have already sought to facilitate a meeting with the director of Approved Premises, to discuss Felmores and make sure the campaigners’ hard work is not undone by rushed Tory policy.”

Bit close to deputy leader Blake's house isn't it?

Still now that UKIP hold the whip hand it's bound to get sorted out. Nice relocation to Billericay perhaps.....

Callaghan bandstanding again..

Actually UKIP just get on with stuff as opposed to mouthing off about it.
... They have been campaigning on the relocation of it. Nobody wants these people next door to them, let's face it.

However, I am sure Callaghan will do an excellent Twitter campaign if he can spare the time between spouting off about the Tories and UKIP and their supposed "coalition", with which he is utterly obsessed.

I am surprised he is not campaigning for the "human rights" of the incumbents of the bail hostel actually.

Still, it makes a change from assassinating the character of other prominent local politicians. And threatening anyone who opposes him with libel action. The ultimate fascist. "I can say what I like about you but you DARE challenge me."

Actually no: you tell lies about me, I tell the truth about you eh?

Callaghan will always be where there is a good photo opportunity and Le Surf has obviously taken time out from his council duties at Brentwood to jump in on it too. This is the same Le Surf that bangs on about a UKIP/Con coalition yet is involved in a coalition himself at Brentwood, with the Limpdums.

Actually these two have as much chance of winning a general election as I have of being top of Callaghan's Christmas card list. (But then he probably finds Christmas "offensive" anyway).

Despite Callaghan's pre-election posturing (#winning) ending in a crashing defeat, this milksop has STILL learned nothing. He continues to prattle, posture and pose in the misapprehension that somehow next year, the people of Basildon will magically whisk him off to Westminster.

Funny thing is, most people, including some of his ex colleagues who dumped Labour when they could no longer bear his petulant attitude, would rather whisk him off to Outer Mongolia. (Not that we have anything against Outer Mongolians.)

He continues to endlessly obsess about his betters on the Council ie the Conservatives and UKIP, which obviously loom very large indeed in his worst nightmares.

He mouthed off at me when I encountered him on election day "the people love me".... er, I think not Gav me old China, that's just when you look in a mirror.

You thought you would win the council back. In fact you had it all sewn up and you strutted around like a peacock during the count... until the declarations were read, one after the other... dear oh dear...

Well, we all know what thought did don't we?

Followed a dustcart and thought it was a wedding.

;D
