Is the ballot for Council House transfer likely to be fixed ?
The following is a copy of a comment that I left on the following link http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/southwalesnews/163-7m-savings-way-taxpayers-face-3-8-cent-hike/article-1872252-detail/article.html .
The comment that I made is as a result of speaking to local people who have expressed their concerns to me.Therefore I have decide to ask the question.
"Over the last few months some very serious points have been brought to my attention regarding the way that NPTCBC seems to work.
Firstly many people who are opposed to the transfer of Council Housing into the private sector are having difficulty in receiving their ballot papers.
There seems to be even more of a problem for those Council Tenants who have "No" posters in their windows.
A significant number of Council Tenants have expressed concern that they will be denied the right to vote "NO" by the last day 16th of March as they simply cannot get ballot papers sent to them !
This I find deeply disturbing.
What I find even more disturbing is that I was approached by some "Front Line Council House Workers " who stated that they HAVE ALREADY BEEN TOLD who is to remain with NPTCBC and who is to be transferred to the new organisation NPT Homes !
How can this be the case as the results of the ballot are not even in yet !
Has the result of the ballot already been decided by NPTCBC before the event ?
Is the vote fixed ?
If this is true then serious questions need to be asked.
Personally I wonder if NPTCBC will use their usual trick of placing an injunction on me to stop me speaking out against them as they did with the "Justice for Linda Lewis Campaign" ?
Why are they afraid of the truth ?
Nothing to hide then nothing to fear surely."
