THE GARY HOPKINS ANTI-BULLY ELECTION (BAND)WAGON! Pt 2

It’s full steam ahead for ‘the Gary Hopkins anti-bully election (band)wagon’!

It just keeps on getting better. A fabulous new poster was unveiled today:

Plus a brief motorcade across College Green where some of the new posters were hand-delivered to the Counts Louse. If only all election campaigns were like this …

 JUST IN! THE GARY HOPKINS ANTI-BULLY ELECTION (BAND)WAGON: THE MOVIE

MAN ON INTERNET ANGRY ABOUT STUFF ON INTERNET ABOUT MAN! ‘IN A’ COMER GOES BALLISTIC AT ‘BRISTOLIAN’…

Former Lib Dem councillor for Easton STEVE ‘IN A’ COMER has been in touch to complain about our recent story on that peculiarly decorated minibus seen in Knowle.

We repeat his unsubstantiated words here for your delight:

Do your really think “We’ve no idea if any of it’s true but here’s the text we’ve lovingly copied……” Counts as a disclaimer? If you claim to be journalists you should check your facts before just reproducing what some idiot with an axe to grind is saying.

Gary Hopkins does NOT own a home in Spain. He was NOT an undischarged bankrupt when he first stood for election (if he had been he would have been disqualified).

As to the planning stories, surely as a Councillor he should be representing residents complaining about an unauthorised change of use of a premises to a car wash? or is it OK to do this illegally in Knowle but not in the more affluent Gloucester Road (where a similar enforcement case is also pending).

Just think before you repeat unsubstantiated rumours word for word!

Uh… Whoops!

Still, good to know that Steve has lost none of his famous attention to detail since losing his seat on the council by a single vote… Apart from reading but not fully understanding the bit where we clearly state “We’ve no idea if any of it’s true”.

Our readers just love hearing about Gary Hopkins!

THE GARY HOPKINS ANTI-BULLY ELECTION (BAND)WAGON!

Hopkins wagon

A fascinating vehicle has appeared cruising around Knowle dedicated to that legendary local loudmouth, Lib Dem councillor Gary Hopkins. It’s certainly an interesting addition to the local elections but what does it all mean?

We’ve no idea if any of it’s true but here’s the text we’ve lovingly copied from one of its posters anyway:

THE TRUTH ABOUT BULLY BOY HOPKINS

1)  HE HAS DUBIOUS LINKS TO A COMPANY CALLED LANDVEST. A COMPANY BASED IN THE ISLE OF MAN – A TAX HAVEN. THIS COMPANY IS BUYING UP LAND IN KNOWLE AND SELLING IT ON TO MAKE HUGE PROFITS.

2)  HOW DOES A LOCAL COUNCILLOR GET TO OWN A LUXURY VILLA IN SPAIN?????

3)  MR HOPKINS IS A LIAR HE APPROACHES  CONSTITUENTS AND GETS THEM TO LIE TO FULFIL HIS OWN AGENDA. HE HAS LIED BY STATING THE LABOUR CANDIDATE LIVES IN TOTTERDOWN WHEN IN FACT HE LIVES IN KNOWLE” DOES MR HOPKINS  NEED A SAT NAV OR AZ OF BRISTOL?

4)  FACT MR HOPKINS HAS BEEN SEEN LETTING HIS DOG FOUL REDCATCH PARK. DOES HE CLEAN UP THE EXCREMENT? NO!

And here’s a close up photo of one of the posters – happy voting!
