Padihams Labour mayor in racism row - NWN exclusive
It seems that Padihams Labour Mayor Bobby Clark has got himself into a severe spot of trouble after a racist outburst late last year. Surprisingly this hasn't been reported by the local news, maybe it's because Cllr Clark 'pens' some articles for the Lancashire Evening Telegraph group (LET). The LET are aware of this 'race' row.
All this internal row blew up last Winter. During the very 'cold snap' late last year, one of Cllr. Clarks mates got himself locked out of his home. He telephoned CALICO HOUSING who manage 4,500 homes around the Burnley area to be told; "yes they could open his home, but it would cost £60 +."
For one reason or another this guy said he could not afford that amount after pleading that he would freeze to death during the very severe cold at the time. This wasn't acceptable to Calico.
So off the guy goes to old labourite Mayor Bobby Clark and explains his plight.
Bobby gets on the phone to Calico and explains the situation and says he will make sure the£60 bill is paid .
Unfortunately for Bobby he forgets to switch the other guys mobile phone off and says " he was a bloody paki !" while handing the phone back to it's owner. Of course, the gentleman at Calico who was/is a young 19 year old Asian male, makes a complaint for stress and all the rest of it.
The thing is, this row has been going on all this year and if it had been the current Deputy Mayor John Cave who had uttered those words, we can only imagine the 'mass medias' response. It would have been banner headlines on every major newspaper and TV network.The sheer hypocrisy of the media is overwhelming.
Many of the old thick labourites like Mr. Clark are racist, usually even more so than BNP members. But yet they vote for, work for, and positively favour immigration and immigrants, ahead of indigenous British people.
Why should Padiham Mayor Clark be exempt from what would have happened if it had been Padihams Deputy mayor who had uttered racist language ? After all, it is the actions of fools like Labour Mayor Clark that have brought in these obscene laws that can destroy a person for life if the 'mass media' decide to target a person.
