Two down One to go!

                                              Horsforth councillors, Cllr Chris Townsley, Cllr Andrew Barker and Cllr Brian Cleasby.

Breaking News!

We have just received word that following on from Andrew Barkers shock de-selection by local Liberal Democrats prior to the May 2011 election that Brian Cleasby will not be seeking re-election when his term ends in 2014!

Cleasby does not even live in Horsforth and never has!

The old age pensioner was once dubbed one of "Britain’s most well-travelled council officials" by The Times, when they revealed that as well as trips to Beijing and Hangzhou  taxpayers also stumped up £4,832 for Cleasby and his wife, Jo, to fly business class to Durban, the South African city that is twinned with Leeds and renowned for its warm climate and surf.!

In the year to March 2012 Cleasby received a staggering £16,158.21 in allowances....

  4. If it is true that he lives outside Horsforth, the people of Horsforth who vote for him are crazy! IMHO

  5. I completely agree that councillors should live in the ward they represent - but wait where does Councillor Cleasby live? 11 Carr Lane, Rawdon - which is shock horror - in Horsforth ward. Stop trying to twist the facts Bob, it undermines what you do.

  6. Dear Anonymous 23 October...

    Thank you for your comment and support, however if you check the news release you will notice that I stated "Cleasby does not even live in Horsforth and never has!"
    Whilst I recognise 11 Carr Lane is now within the electoral ward. It is not and never has been in Horsforth. A fact that many true Horsfordians find unaceptable...

  9. No doubt this comment will go unpublished as usual but....... Why Bob do you and your supporters tend to pick on the past and only negative points? If you are about the truth how about sharing some facts about goodwork that has been done that you then put your mane to? Also if you are so AMAZING why hide your identity?
