Nice weather now so move into the shed and let them evict you. I am sure the papers will be interested then.

The "Newbury Berkshire" facebook group have also put it up on their wall. You should add some cool pictures of your shed!

Looks like they reported it as spam or something as now my account is temporarily blocked from sending messages. Nice.


It never ends. rolleyes.gif

Is there a way for you to contact Facebook about it? Obviously if anyone can report a FB user for spam - and their account then gets temporarily restricted functionality - it could be an easy way for any NTC facebook user to try and disrupt your group/campaign.

I realise it's a precaution on Facebook's side, but clearly the messages you've been sending to people are not spam, but genuine (whether people choose to support the group or not doesn't make it spam).

But anyway I am available at any time for protesting, all I need is a sign and a megaphone.

I am sure you meant that in jest, but it seems quite a few people see the "one person against authority" thing as an excuse to jump on a bandwagon without knowing the person, the full facts or the other side of the argument.

Up until the time certain comments were made a while back I was fairly neutral. Now I am much less so.

We can only work with what is in front of us. I see no 'facts' that allow for any legitimate defence of the council's position, or methods. A gagging order as supplied to Simon was the last straw in my view. That was and is just wrong.

Today it might only be a 'loud mouth' allotmenteer, but tomorrow it could be someone else a councillor takes a disliking to.

You're saying I need a flawless personality to enjoy my allotment in peace? Of course I'm flawed; I have my prejudices, sharp endges, intolerances, disrespect, arrogance, and a whole bunch of other stuff that you won't find attractive. I'm not asking you to invite me home to dinner, I just want the Council to respect my rights.

Right an injustice - give Simon Kirby his allotment back!

There was an element of jest in it. I will admit.
I am not the first person to jump on a bandwagon here as I'm sure you are aware. (Apparently everyone on here hates me but we all know that to not be the case, off topic apologies)

I have read a lot of notes, many of which I was frankly bored to **** reading, long posts from Simon and notices from the council and from the facts I have "seen" - I think that the Council and their actions have been appalling and indefensible. A gagging order? Over a shed?
Get with it!?

But as sheds go, it's a very nice one indeed. I would love my shed to be of that quality. I wish I even had a shed....


Yes but you are opiniated and have a mind of your own....you appear the sort that would refuse to touch your forelock when approaching a town councillor.... you appear the sort that would like to think the council are there to serve you not the other way round. You appear the sort that would let the council know if they were not carrying out their duties correctly and inform everyone just what was going on and would not abide by an illegal gagging order..... so no allotment I'm afraid ergo no shed for you! rolleyes.gif
