New Kid On The Block

I am always interested when a new political blog arrives so a warm welcome goes to The View from the Pier. This particular blog seems to round up the local political and not, from the naked eye, be affiliated to any particular party.

This blog was also given a mention and was thus described:

Finally, we come to Cllr Cox, who is almost a legend of his own in Southend politics. His blog is the only one which, to my mind, rivals Cllr Ware-Lane’s. Regularly updated, with much about what’s going on in his ward, it’s also brutally tribal. Not that you’d expect anything different from a member of the Tory ruling administration, but Tony does come across as a bit of a bruiser. Whether that’s a good thing or not, I suppose depends on the colour of your rosette, but it’s certainly a good local politician’s blog.

A fair reflection I feel. A link to the blog can be found in the menu bar opposite.

The trouble is any comments against these views never get published, so we never see an unbiased opinion. The other is that Tony is very precise at giving out orders & directions but never listens or takes any notice of the very people that gave him the power in the first place.

I am happy to publish comments whether supportive or not. It is just as a general rule of thumb I do not publish Anonamous comments to try and eliminate trolls.
