The Ratland Rant

We are pleased to report there was a happy ending to this when the Bank Of Ireland kindly put her out of her misery and repossessed her house!  We hope she is very happy in her new home.  Wherever that is.

Roving Report No 2

The OLS team received the following contribution:

Hello ‘Stocks,’ as promised from your last post we’ll keep them coming.  Round 2 of contributions from ‘The Rutland Roving Reporter’ who has come across even more misunderstandings by a local blogger:  
From ‘A Load of Bollards’ to a ‘Load of Bullocks.’  It seems our erstwhile Rutland self styled saviour has done it again.  Well, perhaps it was to be expected after all he has been somewhat quiet of late.  Probably because of the threat of further prosecution, which previously the CPS decided not to pursue on that occasion on the grounds that the evidence needed to be more accurate in its presentation.   Not guilty he maintained – well I’ll leave that your own judgement.
His recent attack on someone, and something, that he knows absolutely nothing about (driving and keeping quiet) has left the egg squarely, or rather ‘mushily,’ on his face yet again.  He has a well known propensity for miss-quoting the law by maintaining that it is wrong, on this occasion, to accept the punishment. It was of course within the law to do so.  If anyone should know what it is like to ‘not accept punishment or responsibility’ then surely it is he. Has he ever accepted either punishment or responsibility?
Yes, he criticised someone for actually admitting they’d done wrong and who took their punishment in a very brave way.  The person in question went to classes about road safety, (shock, horror they were caught speeding along with millions of others) and went back to basics to learn how to put it right.  Not having ever attended these classes I can only surmise that they are quite humiliating and as a punishment it is far better than trawling first time offenders through the courts and all the expense that that entails. 
I admit to being no expert but hey, a brave person if you ask me.  And to put it in the public domain like they did serves as a reminder to us all that it is so easy to transgress. But of course our ‘erstwhile’ local blogger has never transgressed. Or has he? Perhaps a little research into his past might prove fruitful. 
Another example of this blogger meddling into areas of no concern to him was the attempt to cover his tracks when he made an accusation regarding the attendance of a local photographer doing his job at a charity function recently.  A reliable source tells me that he attended the function having claimed no expenses or gratuities at all.  I believe that is charity isn’t it? Well done that man, you should hold your head up high and we’ll endeavour to get a medal struck you.
The blogger always makes a feeble attempt to ‘covers his tracks’ by saying it was somebody else’s fault that he got the ‘duff’ information he posts for all to see.  Not to mention the fact that he usually says it came from a ‘member of the public.’  How many people actually speak to him?  There can’t be that many otherwise he would have some support locally, which doesn’t seem to be the case.  Who would want to engage in conversation with him anyway!  (Bad breath I believe, even at a distance)
So, to finalise this latest short report on our local ..... let’s examine the truth shall we?
A person who, like millions of others, makes a mistake in life and pays for it by volunteering for some instruction into how they went wrong.  Admirable of them to do so, I think.  The person involved honestly exposes themselves to ridicule and condemnation from  somebody who doesn’t even drive or hold a license and won’t get a job to contribute to society and perhaps better themselves.  The blogger has no shame or remorse for his wrong doings because he is himself lacking in many areas.
He made up a story about a charity event that he thinks is something of shindig for spongers.  What he neglects to see is that they have the right to do this in our democratic society.  He tries to imply that St Georges Barracks is behind it and then has the audacity to say it wasn’t his fault he got it all wrong but some mythical being in the ether that is sending these messages to him by telepathy or better still by some message system that gets him to emergency incidents, fire, police or ambulance as they happen, no matter where in the county.  He must be telegraphic, or have somebody on the inside.  Mmmmmm.
That’s it for ‘Stocks’ I’ll be back soon when our transgressor transgresses again, which won’t be long I bet.

Oakham Councillor Puts Porno in Town Noticeboard

The arresting officer perusing Cllr Brookes' porno display

Lunchtime shoppers in Oakham High Street got more than an eyeful when Oakham Town Councillor Martin Brookes forced open the town noticeboard and displayed a shocking portfolio of hard core porno!

He then proceeded to encourage passers by, regardless of age, to admire the pictures!  Needless to say Cllr Brookes was arrested at the scene and taken away by the police.

Inspector Monks of Oakham Police station told the Rutland Mercury  “It’s not nice if people use a public notice board to display offensive pictures and I won’t tolerate it.”

The bizarre selection of pornographic images portrayed a practical demonstration of a little known fringe fetish known as vegetable sodomy which is usually confined to groups who don’t have access to proper sex toys such as prison inmates and long-term unemployed.

After his release by the police, Cllr Brookes, who hasn’t worked in years, said “The Assistant Town Clerk said it did not portray a good image for Oakham.  My answer is that it is a minority of the people residing in Oakham who feel they can treat me in this disgusting manner”.  Later on Cllr Brookes stated on his blog: ”I am told if I went to a special school I should be excluded from being a Councillor. I don't think this is correct. If I am charged and convicted for display offensive images it may come out I was charged as a young man for petty theft.”

He later accepted a police caution for the offences of criminal damage and displaying offensive images, though he refused to say who it was who was in the pictures with the carrot.  All that is known about the person in the pictures is that he was male and blonde.

Brooksy, who is male and blonde, also outraged Oakham residents by his refusal to pay the repair bill for the criminal damage he caused because he is unemployed, even though he is a regular in Oakham’s pubs.

In November 2011 Cllr Brookes was found to be wholly unfit to be a councillor and was disqualified from holding any public office.
