Apologies,
In my earlier message I forgot to thank you for blocking my access to your PUBLIC facebook site.
I suppose that was the result of the time I have spent last week in correcting the misinformation and worse that you peddle, in particular of late about the location of our new hospital, but I must say that I feel somehow liberated at no longer visiting the dark space that you and your followers inhabit.

The best part is of course that I no longer see the abuse that your trolls will doubtless continue t o direct at someone …

In a decade of social media, I have had to block a total of 3 persistent, abusive, and misrepresenting trolls David.

You have just become troll #3, and the only one I have met. [unless perhaps you were also one of the other two]

My ‘dark space inhabiting’ followers as you falsely characterise them were sufficiently numerous to make me the first-preference Mayor at the last election whereas your party vote got you less than half of my independent Councillor votes.

2019 Councillor Votes
I do however yield to your intimate knowledge of dark spaces, as detailed in Police files and Investigate Magazine published statements, some R18.

And as regards your false claim about my understanding of Standing Orders, you are the Cr, who decided to sink a two-year long unanimous Council resolution to investigate Unitary Council advantages and disadvantages without understanding the many Standing Orders requirements for revocation of a resolution, and wasted a great deal of staff time relitigating the whole revocation process just to ensure that Councillors would not know what the implications of a Dunedin Unitary Council might be. You also regularly attempt Points of Order which aren’t under Standing Orders. You should read Standing Orders in the time you now have not trolling my FB page.

Looking forward to you fact-checking the above,
Lee

    Calvin Oaten. This is a true and factual comment on Bendin -Grope’s career, even to the references to his feature in the police book regarding the membership of the little Carisbrook Hotel club, which specialised in groping young girls . The book is a must read if you are interested . He also fell out with the Labour government at the time when he was a cabinet member, Helen Clark put his part in a lying escapade by sending him to coventry then removing his membership of the party including loss of his job in cabinet,the loss of his seat in St Kilda and out of the party altogether. He bounces back onto council and wreaks all sorts of mayhem as the Chair of the Finance committee. It was the sad doing of Mayor Dave Cull that let that happen. Unfortunately he is not any good at the economy nor anything else .
