Tories and labour councillors laugh at the thought of putting Hartlepool First

According to a report in Wednesday’s Hartlepool Mail the formation of a new political party, dedicated to putting Hartlepool first, was the subject of mirth in the Hartlepool Council Chamber from some Labour and Conservative Councilors. I find it sad that anyone in a position where they are supposed to be representing the town can mock the idea of putting Hartlepool first and consider the aim of putting Hartlepool first to be something to laugh at.

The Tory leader even reportedly joked that he couldn’t remember the name of the new party! So there is one Hartlepool Councilor who by his own admission can’t even remember a simple phrase such as “Putting Hartlepool First” I do hope Councilor Wells tries to remember it when he is making decisions that affect the people of Hartlepool and the town. Unfortunately of course Labour, Conservative (and Lib-Dem councilors) all have to put their party policies ahead of everything else. Their parties won’t allow them to do anything else!

The poor health, shorter life expectancy and high unemployment rates in the town are not something to laugh at! I do hope the electorate of the town remembers in May that the Labour and Tory parties consider the very idea of putting Hartlepool first to be something to laugh at. I think it’s long past the time when Hartlepool Council should have been putting Hartlepool first. In May we have the opportunity to elect new representatives who are really committed to putting Hartlepool first.

Should this be in the dictionary under "irony" or perhaps "prophecy"

No reply from the Inland Revenue

As it is now February 1st and HM Revenue and Customs has not acknowledged my R27 form I assume my dad has been fined £100 for not submitting his tax return by the January 31st deadline. Ironic really, dead man fails to meet dead line!
