They say that it emerged the previous leader of the Isle of Wight council, Andy Sutton, was forced to quit, rather than step down as the council said at the time.

It was this action that enabled the fresh-faced Cllr Pugh to take the position as The Leader of Isle of Wight Council. This all links to a number of councillors who were referred to the Standards Board over the passing of a planning application by Cllr Anne Bishop back in September 2007. (more…)

CHALE SCHOOL: Refusal Recommended for Federation Proposal

Regular VentnorBlog readers will remember that in October last year, Chale School were given a last chance to try to save their school from closure (as a result of the massive school reorganisation).

The Isle of Wight Council permitted them a two month period to put together a proposal for federation. As many readers will be aware, the village have been battling hard to save their primary school, which they say will rip the heart out of the community if it is lost.

Very interesting article concerning our Council Leader David Pugh. Thought we would share it with you, as it gives an insight into why we should not trust David about his vision of the ‘Isle of Wight’ becoming an Eco Island .

Daily Mirror, 11/9/03, p.20 – The Tory party’s youth wing is in crisis after allegations of vote rigging led to chaos at its conference. Eight candidates for top posts resigned as outraged rivals called each other “cheating bastards” on stage. A BBC documentary crew was asked to leave the floor in a bid to stop news of Sunday’s row getting out… (more…)

David Pugh has written to Cllr Vanessa Churchman insisting that she steps down as Chair of the council’s Scrutiny Committee, citing the recent Adjudication panel hearings.

We understand that Cllr Pugh has insisted that she resign the position by tomorrow morning and that if she doesn’t he will take it to the full council in the evening. (more…)

David Pugh Needs to go aswell!

We need informed independents, not idiots reading from a pre-determined script so they can sing in unison. Expose them and the damage they’ve done to our school system and our eco island image (the one thing that could resurrect the Island economy long term).

Get them out and watch how this island progresses/regenerates
