Pay Up And Shut Up

Friends and readers.

Here’s a little beauty for you. Remember that company called SSE, you know the company that got fined £15million for defrauding it’s customers, the company that Labour group leader Andy pandy Burns said he didn’t know had a contract with Edinburgh shity Council, the company that bunged former Chief executive and crook three jobs Bruce £50,000 which she gave to charity, yep course she did, and the company that our bestest mate and pretty much chair of everything Lesley Prada Hinds has got £20,000 worth of shares in, allegedly.

Well dear friend that very same company has been fined yet again this time for prescribing tariffs according to post codes. In other words those that live in the poorest areas pay more. Their pre paid meters claw back more from the poorest punters which should help the profits and please the share holders, eh Lesley. And yet this criminal organisation has a licence to print money given to them by a democratic vote of course even though they have been caught and fined on at least two occasions for cheating customers, sounds like something the Labour party would support, and it helps if you have a financial interest in it which has been declared, hasn’t it?

Once more Edinburgh shity Council has another scandle to deal with and as usual will sweep it under the carpet to keep the crooked corrupt officials under the same carpet, company. We the taxpayers and Joe mugs can just watch as this ongoing corrupt mess unfolds in front of us. While we are at it our reliable inside source tells Sucks that an elected member asked about the pension fund but was warned off by the Labour group threatening that it was a coalition breaker. Wonder why? Simple question, or is this another murky situation which has been with held from other elected members. We will follow this one with interest.

More Info

Friends and readers.

As we have been reporting to you, we are gathering evidence regarding a so called Community activist who in reality is on the take. We told you that we recently received an E-Mail which named this individual along with two others, now someone has come forward to tell Sucks that they were involved with this organisation but has since left when they found out it’s real intentions. Once again the same name came up that has been mentioned before.

We are concerned that this individual who promotes himself as a Community activist is actually stealing from them and enriching himself. Sucks will continue to investigate and when we have absolute evidence we will publish the name of this individual and contact the appropriate authorities

And The Shit Keeps coming

Friends and readers.

Now we are being spun the story that the Trams are so busy more will need to be put into service. Well there are plenty of them rusting away at the Ratho depot. First lie is the Trams are full up, nonsense. Sucks spent several days scattered over a period of time taking photographs of empty Trams most of the day. Yes during this Festival period they may have increased passenger numbers but nothing like enough to warrant extra congestion, just to satisfy political ego’s.

The Trams are losing money, vast amounts of it and that’s not including the inflated salaries paid to yes men and numpties who churn out the same old crap, chief numpty being our old chum, friend of Prada Hinds and bully Ian Craig. We exposed Craig not only as a bully but also someone who abused his position, remember we told you how he bought a few Lothian Buses on the cheap for his family firm and how he and his wife although he denies any involvement, another lie, acquiring a contract to refurbish an Edinburgh Bus depot. What did Transport convenor Prada Hinds do about that, why nothing of course, to busy counting her SSE shares we suppose.

So here are a few facts about our open wound the Trams.

Trams run up to every eight minutes between 7am and 6.30pm, every ten minutes at other times and 12-15 minutes on Sundays.”

As we all know the traffic lights go to red when the trams passes and it take about six minutes before any car can move if there is a tram heading back in the other direction.

NOW DOES ANYONE SEE THE FLAW IN INCREASING TRAM FREQUENCY?

You got it, if tram frequencies increase from the current 8 minute intervals to under six minute intervals – NO car or bus of bike will be able to cross the traffic lights at the tram lines because they will constantly be at RED

If brains were dynamite, these muppets at the council would not have enough to blow their own nose.

( Has anyone checked the pollution levels at the traffic lights were all the traffic has to stop to let the moving road block (tram) through? )

The council know that this is all true, that’s why the thumbs down PR team are doing a weekend shift, and they get so upset when you tell them the truth about the tram – it is a bleeding sore and it continues to drain money from schools the elderly and the vulnerable, and even bin collections. Every part of Edinburgh is being targeted to cover for the tram mistake. Watch and see parking charges extended into the night and the weekends which is something the peoples champion Prada Hinds is strongly advocating.

Let Them Eat Cake Even If It’s Fake

Friends and readers.

Yet another blunder from the Queen of blunderland and pretty much chair of everything Lesley Prada Hinds. It may have only been £400 of taxpayers money, but the fake cake tells us more about the pretence and lies surrounding the budget bursting Tram system. Once again Prada has her face plastered over the News cutting a fake cake which say’s a lot about her as well, celebrating the biggest financial mess this city has ever seen. The Trams are losing vast amounts of money and has been a dripping roast for a few shirkers who have done well out of it. Is she celebrating the fact that it cost the city a million pounds to bring in a consultant pal of three jobs Bruce to put a spin on this disaster, or is she celebrating the fact that she and three jobs claimed credit for sorting out the mess they created in the first place.

Her and her colleagues have bankrupted this City, and now can’t afford to keep the public toilets open or cut the grass, yet glorify in wasting over a billion pounds on a piece of useless shit, and then rob Lothian buses to help pay for it. Here’s a little bit of info that you may find interesting and how you are being conned.

How governments and so called ‘authorities’ reap vast sums of money and invest, often so much, that the value of the investments bring in more than the ‘tax’.. but they dont tell you about it… its all in offshore funds and ‘emergency’ accounts..

They tell you about the ‘budget’ and how there’s always unseen (to them not us) overspending giving the impression they’re skint and excuse to bump up charges or close a facility down.. but they’re not…

For starters they have near £4Billion in their pension fund that they invest.. now where did all that come from??

(another good example of CEC ‘transparancy’)

.. and since the tram system WE bought (and will be paying for) is such a good investment why didn’t they use some of that to INVEST WITH instead of just getting us to pay for it … because they can…

Shouldn’t the Edinburgh Evening News be finding out how much three jobs Bruce and Prada Hinds spent on the launch party the day the trams finally started running?

Take £300, add a zero, and you might be close. This was after they both said the launch would be “low key”. Didn’t stop them buying champagne with our money.

Any news on when Prada Hinds bought £20,000 worth of SSE shares and when the council signed a multi million pound contract with the very same company. Was she involved with the negotiations? Did she vote on the award of the contract.

Did Andy Pandy Burns and Cllr Whatshisname from the SNP know she had a small fortune in SSE shares? This of course is the same company that Burns did not know had a contract with the City. Who votes for these clowns.

Here We Go Again

Friends and readers. We all know about the shocking state of Edinburgh’s roads, and who blames who. But our old mate and Queen of blunderland, and pretty much chair of everything including being Transport convenor Lesley Prada Hinds has popped up with the annual who’s to blame for the state of the roads.

When is the Evening News actually going to start doing some proper investigative journalism, as well as asking some pertinent questions of Prada Hinds Edinburgh Council have had the means to deal with this problem for years. They have chosen not to. The question the EEN should be asking is , why?
Why does the EEN not ask Prada what she intends to do regarding the shocking state of these 4 examples, all caused by utility companies, all caused by the council failing to see the utility companies adhered to the NRSW Act.
1… the junction of Blenheim Place and London Road.
2….Baxter Place up to the OMNI roundabout.
3….the junction of Leith Street, Princes St. and the North Bridge.
4….Cadzow Place.
Each one is a disgrace, each one caused by utility companies, and in each case CEC failed to Act.
So stop your pathetic gibbering Hinds, get of your incompetent **** and actually do something. That department is not fit for purpose, and the sooner the entire management structure are sacked , the better it will be for the rest of us.
I should add that this failure by CEC has been going on for a lot longer than Hinds has been Transport Convener. This is a historical failure by Transport Management.

We have also received some shocking it true information from our whistle blower. She tells us that
Prada Hinds alledgedly owns £20,000 worth of shares in SSE. We at Sucks as everyone else will be appalled at this revelation if true. Socialist Lesley and Labour candidate for Edinburgh North and Leith at the Holyrood elections next May must surely go and go now if this information is correct. This same company that former Chief Executive and con artist Sue three jobs Bruce got a £50,000 bung from and where she is now our whistle blower tells us a paid director has a contract with ECC to supply power to their housing stock. Has Prada declared this and if not then why not.

This is an incredible revelation at a time when citizens are facing cuts to their services and their city is in a complete financial mess. We demand an investigation into this information and if true we demand the instant resignation of Councillor Hinds. What a disgrace, what a complete disgrace.

Joke Time

Friends and readers. We at Pilton Sucks like to lighten things up now and again, and this is one of those again times. So here goes with some Sucks side splitters

Boris Johnstone on David Cameron

A sheep in sheep’s clothing.”
“A modest man, who has much to be modest about.”
“An empty taxi arrived at 10 Downing Street, and when the door was opened, Cameron got out.”
Boris on a visit to the Circus with his parents

I remember when I was a child, being taken to the Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the programme which I most desired to see was the one described as “The Boneless Wonder”. My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralising and revolting for my youthful eye and I have waited fifty years, to see the The Boneless Wonder sitting on the Treasury Bench.”
“If you were my husband, I’d poison your tea.” Quoth Boris : “My dear lady, if you were my wife, I’d drink it.”

There’s no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.

‘Politicians make strange bedfellows, but they all share the same bunk’.

‘You can fool all of the people all of the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough.’
.
‘Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build bridges, even where there are no rivers’.

‘Artificial hearts are nothing new. Politicians have had them for years.’

Don’t vote. You’ll only encourage them.

‘Although he is regularly asked to do so, God does not take sides in British politics.’

When buying and selling is controlled by politicians, the first things to be bought and sold are politicians.

Crime does not PAY … as well as politics.

The next time you hear a politician use the word “billion” casually think about whether you do, or don’t, want that politician spending your tax MONEY.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but a recent TV ad did a good job of putting that figure in perspective for us all in one of its statements.
A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
And………………..
A billion pounds ago, was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate the Tories spend our money, and none of it on us.

Did anyone tell you about the day when Prime Minister David Cameron was visiting a primary school in England, and was taken into the room of a class discussing words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mr. Cameron whether he would care to lead a discussion on the word “Tragedy”, so he asked the class to give him an example.

A little boy stood up, and said, “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, was playing in the field, and a tractor ran over him, and killed him, that would be a tragedy”.

“No,” said Mr. Cameron, ‘that wouldn’t be a tragedy: that would be an accident”.
A little girl raised her hand: “If the school bus had fifty boys and girls in it, and it drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy”.

“I’m afraid not,” explained Mr. Cameron; “That is what we would call a great loss.”
The room went silent. No child volunteered.

The Prime Ministers eyes searched the room. “Can no one here give me an example of a tragedy?”

At the back of the room, a little hand went up, and a quiet voice said, “If a plane carrying you and Mr Osborne was struck by friendly fire and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy”.

“Magnificent!” exclaimed Mr. Cameron, “That’s right! And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?”
“Well,” said the quiet voice, “It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident.”

Info Incoming

Friends and readers.

Some time ago we told we had received information that a Community activist within the North Edinburgh area and operating particularly in the Granton, Pilton, Muirhouse end of the area was on the take. We can now tell our readers that we received an Email with information that named the prime suspect.

We thank our reader for their e-mail and as always Pilton Sucks will keep the persons name private. The email alleges that an organization is in reality a private business operating under false pretences and our prime suspect is involved with them.

We will investigate this latest information and see what we come up with. If our reader has any more information pertaining to this organisation, please get in touch. In the meantime watch out Sucks is about.

She’s At It Again

Friends and readers.

The Queen of blunderland and pretty much chair of everything without taking responsibility for anything, and Sucks favourite character Lesley Prada Hinds is at it again, putting her foot in it, this time about extending parking charges.

Prada in yet another attempt to push her forlorn hope of winning the Edinburgh North and Leith seat has blurted out what she thinks is a vote winner, and punish the motorist even more they already are. We have an idea for you Prada, why don’t you try and make driving in Edinburgh a criminal offence, or have you already though about that.

There seems to be no end to this woman’s stupidity, no level she will not stoop to in order to con the voters. There can be few who don’t see through her claims of ‘improved safety, reduced congestion, increased ease of use, encouraging cycling’ – all of which are total made up nonsense without foundation – if she were to be allowed ‘shared use parking’

What that term really means, is she wants to sell the same thing three times – twice by selling multiple permits for the same spaces, and then another time by also sticking a meter on the space. Obscene greed, pure and simple, because she’s bankrupted the city, and can’t afford to cut the grass.

The £21,000 per day interest payments on the tram loan continue to take effect, and will do so for decades. The council can bleat on about council tax freezes (which they knew about when spending £1,000,000,000 on unwanted trams) till the cows come home, the fact is clear to all, they are becoming increasingly desperate to avoid bankruptcy and any subsequent possible prosecutions for gross incompetence in public office.

And this dear friends is the reality of Pradas latest utterings, and you wonder why the Labour party is disappearing. Prada and her club of inbreds have corrupted the Labour party to such an extent that it is becoming little more than a fringe party bleating on about the need to relate to the people, when it’s the very people whose support they crave that they despise the most. The financial mismanagement of this city has been criminal in all but name as has the corrupt activities of some senior officials who while earning their grossly obscene salaries have been party to major mal practices. If we say to you Sue three jobs Bruce the former corrupt Chief Executive and cronie of Prada Hinds, then we need say no more.

Robbing the people and conning them with lies won’t win votes, it might fool a few of the woolly jerseyed mob but that won’t be enough to win over the punters of Edinburgh North and Leith who have seen through Labour and will unless a political miracle not return a Labour MSP come next May. It would be a disaster if that were the case. Only saving grace is that the SNP candidate is not that good but miles better than Prada Hinds. Ben your honour Macpherson thinks according to our reliable source that he’s got a great chance of winning, no secret there we suppose, but he will need to get his finger out of his ass pretty quickly, tell the yes mob to go fuck themselves and unlike the lazy but lucky Diedre Brock roll up his sleeves and get out and about. Brock got lucky she surrounded herself with yes mob ass lickers who did fuck all during the campaign but lied convincingly. She stood when the SNP were miles ahead in the polls and basically couldn’t lose even though she was a piss poor candidate.

The bulk of the SNP vote came out of the Pilton, Granton, end of the ward, we have seen the returns yet Brock avoided coming into the area as often as she could, preferring the company of a few ass licking wankers. We understand That the SNP candidate has chosen the same election agent as cobber Brock had, that tells us a lot. Cobber Brock has yet to hold a surgery within that ward that returned the biggest SNP vote, she has yet to even thank those that did all the work, except the few ass lickers who did fuck all but talked a lot.

Any other Labour candidate would surely wipe the floor with info like that but Hinds is so full of herself that she won’t pay a blind bit of attention except to her own personal band of groupies. The SNP bubble is starting to burst, their selection and vetting process is clearly corrupt. They are living on the backs of favourable opinion polls, and are starting to believe just like Labour did that all you need to do is stand a monkey and in this case a yellow and black shirt and they would win for the SNP.

If Prada Hinds was not so smug and full of shit she would come down from that self important belief and keep her big mouth shut a little more she might have a chance of winning even though she’s a complete clown, but that won’t happen and she will try and use the methods that have been used so many times before with the addition of Social Media which we have to say many thousands in the constituency don’t and won’t use, nor twitter nor any shit like that. Pilton Sucks has more readers in the constituency than any of these intrusive sights. In fact that’s something else Edinburgh Shity Council is trying to ban, using Social Media to comment, come back George Orwell all is forgiven. So elections are not won and lost on Social media, never have never will, but the vetting panel of the SNP think they are, prats.

So sticking it to the motorist will not win you an election Lesley, so think again, and surrounding yourself with a few groupies won’t either, there is a chance but you won’t take it you think you are to good for that. And that dear friend is what will beat you in the end and keep you in the hell hole prison of Edinburgh shity Council till you are booted out of there.

Strange But True

Friends and readers.

We thought that we would jot down a few anecdotes and see if they in any way relate to reality. It may seem strange but some of them do.

You can tell monopoly is an old game because there’s a luxury tax and rich people can go to jail.

What this country needs is more unemployed politicians.

At school, David Cameron struggled at “cross country running”. He’s still struggling at that now.

Politicians should serve two terms. One in office, one in prison.

It’s useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk, or running for office.

Diplomacy is letting someone else have your way.

hang petty thieves and appoint the great one to public office.

Sociologists have documented this. Here are the stages of a scandal: First you have the denial, then you have the tearful confession, then it’s resignation, and then you appear on ‘Dancing on Ice’

Democracy means government by discussion, but is only effective if you can stop people talking.

The punishment for those who are too smart to engage in politics is to be governed by those who are dumber.

No matter who you vote for the government always seems to get in.

Freedom of speech is wonderful – right up there with the freedom not to listen.

Bureaucracy defends the status quo long after the quo has lost it’s status.

It was so cold last week that even the politicians were walking around with their hands in their own pockets.

Politicians and nappies have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

So David Cameron is going to use credit rating firms to root out benefit cheats. While he is at it, why not get in touch with Ocean Finance to consolidate the budget deficit into one easy monthly payment?

Talk is cheap except when Parliament does it.

Britain has invented a new missile. It’s called the civil servant – it doesn’t work and it can’t be fired.

The Upper Crust are a bunch of crumbs sticking together.

My local councillor tried to prosecute me for selling goods in pounds and ounces. So I beat him within 2.54cm of his life.

Communist: one who has yearnings for equal division of unequal earnings. He forks out his penny for the shilling in your pocket.

Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxis and cutting hair.

Politics is Hollywood for ugly people.

Donald Trump is running for president and he just released his birth certificate. It lists his eyes as ‘blue’ and his hair as ‘ridiculous.’

I had a cursory glance at the new ‘UK crime maps’. There’s a glitch in the system, as it’s not showing massive amount of crime committed at Downing Street.

Ban censorship.

The prime minister held a meeting with the cabinet today. He also spoke to the bookcase and argued with the chest of drawers.

Death is the most convenient time to tax rich people.

And On the 7th Day He Rested

Friends and readers.

New leaders for Labour, sounds like a manifesto promise, that’s another one broken then. Kezia smiler Dugdale newly elected and her first real job as she isn’t a constituency elected MSP Scottish Labour leader. And Jeremy sleeper Corbin who seems a cert barring ballot rigging which we are sure Labour would never do, to become the other Labour party leader. Couldn’t make this up if we tried. In the grip of the right wing for years the Labour Party have or many of their members have, at last realised that mimicking Tory policies is not a vote winner, we already have a Tory Government causing mayhem as it is, we don’t need another one. Burnam, Cooper and Kendall are systematic of politicians who think that nobody exists outside London and if they do they still live in caves.
The lack of real outstanding quality candidates to lead a once great and noble party is staggering and yet again we point to the way Labour have gone about selecting Parliamentary candidates. The main criteria which is now being replicated by the SNP is that under no circumstances should a potential candidate have had or currently have a real job, they might actually know something and relate to the people whose support they are after.

Smiler Dugdale has as good as said that but she won’t change things as she too has never had a job of any kind where you actually have to get up in the morning battle with the rest of the proletariat to reach your place of employment and then eat shit for most of the day, or do something you hate because you need to pay the rent, or be bullied in the workplace by brainless morons, unless of course you are a corrupt Edinburgh Council official then it’s happy days every day. Mind you the SNP have their own version of selecting candidates, they have a vetting proceedure which is designed to make sure that if you know nothing and have only been in the party two minutes, then your in, check out their possible candidate in Edinburgh East a real corker, half an hour in the SNP and already favourite to be selected as the prospective SNP candidate in Edinburgh East. Makes their newly elected Westminster MP Tommy I’ve seen the light Shepherd seem like a veteran.

We might end up in the crazy position of punters who can’t spell worker being elected to rule over us, it’s an officials dream. Imagine being a Sir Humphrey type and advising someone who has absolutely no idea of what’s going on in front of their nose, and they call this democracy. It would appear that both the SNP and Labour don’t want anyone who has a mind of their own but punters who will be devotees of a creed regardless of whether you agree or not.

Scottish Labour are launching their manifesto on the set of River City.

For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s a far-fetched piece of fiction popular with some Scots punters. River City however, is a TV programme.

The SNP are launching their Scottish Manifesto when some of their candidates have learned how to read and walk upright.
