I have been following the Parking Con thread with glee over the past few days and thought I would pose these questions for evaluation because this is what I have been asking myself.........

Is "Petra"....

1) A spokesperson planted by the council to counteract negativity on here

2) An independent person who has positive views about our local authority and wishes to express them with us

3) A wind up merchant enjoying themselves

or

4) non of the above

????? unsure.gif

Discuss.

PS. Petra, if you can be open and honest please that would be very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Biker.

They are a pre-election stooge in my view. We had another one join recently with a flurry, before their flyer folding duties obviously got in the way of their evenings off.

I don't like all this 'outing' others indulge in. Other than Simon Kirby, I don't think people should expect anyone to do that which they are not prepared to do themselves and if people want to remain anonymous then they should be allowed that privilege.

I agree with that. Entirely. Besides, I really don't care who she (or he) is. Just not important.

Yes, let the argument prevail, I say.

Although Lady Haw Haw (Petra) does sound like someone from the top echelons of the council, the way she talks in riddles without making too much sense, she obviously is not!
The simple reason being that top echelons of our councils do not enter into debate with the plebs do they? Nor do they read this Forum. rolleyes.gif

Mildly amusing though! laugh.gif

Woops, sorry I asked! ohmy.gif

I was not asking them to "out" themselves as I would not any other person on here.
There has been the odd occasion when someone has come on here promoting an activity or business in which they have an interest, but apart from that I have never experienced anyone on here with such candour for any organisation.
I was therefore intrigued by the sentiment of their replies and wondered why they took such an extreme stance in favour of the council and their activities.
Some on here have made the assertion that "Petra" is a council spokesperson. I thought it relevant to the debate if this was verified.
In other words, don't make assumptions on who, if anyone, they represent and then criticise me for attempting to clarify the matter. blink.gif

Stop being sorry. It was a reasonable ask and generated a response and so proved a few of us are still actually alive. You are quite right it is intriguing, the only thing I can think is that she might be User's mum...

(Sorry User, you don't deserve that!)

I'm not sure you are being criticised; however, I doubt you are going to get the right answers here.

Whatever she is or isn't she got a thread dedicated to her, and she has only been on here a few days. And she got everybody united and talking about her/ him/ it. laugh.gif

I think Petra's probably a bit of a stoner.

From what I've seen, that's probably about right. We have a good few about these days - some even gang together and write national newspapers. rolleyes.gif

I do hope Petra remains anonymous. I prefer it to be an entity I don't have to believe really exists. Hopefully it will get hit by a bollard or lost in a massive crack soon.

Are you suggesting that she takes drugs? And would that be just her or all of WBC? And if so would that include the Greenmeanie as well? wink.gif

Like saying who she represents, I agree. I also think an official from the police and other agencies should come on here in an official capacity and answer questions.
