At last night Environment Committee fireweorks flew when Labour got their new poodle to try and do their dirty works. Many times Labour have tried to stop Cllr Gareth Fairhurst in a number of ways last night at the new meeting Tory Councillor Richard Clayton told Cllr Gareth Fairhurst to shut his laptop up. This was as he was the only one with a laptop. At these meetings reports are printed out and circulated but Cllr Gareth Fairhurst has gone paperless 12 months ago. Cllr Clayton got a firm No from Cllr Gareth Fairhurst saying that this how he works and given that we where at a environment committee maybe others should follow suit. After a length discussion including Labour Cllr Turnock complaining about my power supply lead saying that she could fall over it, not sure how you can do this when you are sat down. But after 15 minutes of discussion and after legal advice Cllr Gareth Fairhurst won the argument and carried on with his laptop use.
This just demonstrates that not only can Labour not win the argument with Cllr Gareth Fairhurst but now the Tories are cannot neither and are just going down the route of personal attacks for the sack of it. What was the point of starting an argument for the best part of 15 20 minutes over some one using a Laptop rather than paper reports? In my opinion the were more important things to discuss.
