In a bizarre religious outburst at New Year, the Reverend Rees – who refuses to challenge Tory austerity and continues to cut essential public services at every opportunity – has told the city it should “GLORY IN SUFFERING”.
The Reverend’s New Year message, sent to Bristol City Council staff on 3 January, found him rambling on about “Bristol as a City of Hope”. “An aspiration I find compelling,” he told bemused staff before quoting something “I came across as a young man” from the BIBLE at them.
“We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope,” he explained. So that’s all right then. The Reverend Rees, with the assistance of his bible, has decided suffering is GOOD for us plebs.
So do be sure to CELEBRATE alongside the Reverend when his crappy austerity policies create further suffering this year won’t you? Although please be aware that the Reverend – with his two homes, a £65k salary and lots of foreign trips funded by us to look forward to – will NOT personally experience much of this suffering he’s so keen on.
Isn’t it time the local Labour Party stepped in and sorted this reactionary religious maniac out once and for all? It’s a basic Labour value that we COLLECTIVELY challenge and relieve suffering, not celebrate it for its supposed character building benefits to the INDIVIDUAL?
Come on Labour, deselect the deranged Thatcherite twat and give us a proper Labour mayor.
Move over Billy Graham.
Oh, he just did.
“Man of the people” marvelous Marvin is to Christianity what jimmy saville was to good child care practises.
Have faith! Marvin’s minions have a plan for us to be nearer to God – literally. A current BCC consultation document outlines plans for a new generation of high rise living in Bristol. In other words, Marvin and the council want to build a whole new bunch of high rise flats. Reach for the sky sinners!

Are you taking the piss? not one of the caring sharing Bristol Labour party would dare put there head above the parapet. A bad word against Marvin now could seriously harm their future job prospects. Labour run the majority of Councils in England have you any idea how many 10,000’s of highly paid Council jobs they could miss out on not to mention they could miss out on one of the two holy grails; getting paid via a personal services Company hence reducing your income tax or the ultimate get on board as an external consultant.
Go one name me one, just one Bristol Labour member who went public saying that voting to keep all the PR staff and free parking but slash basic services wasn’t really what a Labour Council should be doing?
**Bristol Labour are dedicated to beat the nasty Tory austerity come on Bristols working classes join me in shouting Labour rallying cry ‘For the many not the few’
** As long as it doesn’t get in the way of my (or any of my friends/family) opportunity of making a six figure sum (ideally at a low tax threshold) working for a Labour Council.
Marvin Thatcher – Tory Poodle!
