The LTDA released an email yesterday (27/09/18) regarding the AGM on the 21st September 2018. It stated the following.
“The behaviour of some members, the same members involved in accusations of intimidation, was frankly shocking”
They are absolutely right. The LTDA COM are guilty of intimidating members, lying to protect their jobs and misleading you to make you think it’s not the LTDA COM, it’s those other people who seek to cause trouble.
Let’s get a few things straight about the AGM.
Richard Massett, Steve McNamara, Paul Brennan, Anthony Street and the rest of the COM behaved disgracefully at the AGM.
At the AGM, Richard Massett laughed and incited the meeting by saying “You will like this one” prior to trying to bring in a rule that leaves more questions than it supposedly answers.
It was clear provocation and frankly he should be removed immediately for his statement to the members present. The manor in which the so called rule was brought in was under handed and sneaky in the most extreme way.
When the LTDA speak about violence it’s against ordinary members who were pushed and threatened at the AGM by COM members.
Steve McNamara continued to try to tell stories about meetings with frothy coffee and fancy biscuits but the members present got so bored that they groaned aloud so much that even he realised he’d lost the room and quickly shut up. As the LTDA Secretary he should resign immediately for continually failing to protect his members and the trade.
There was a recording played at the AGM in which it was proven that the COM had lied about claiming at an AGM in 2016 they had voted to dissolve the North and South branches, there are even minutes available that show there was no delegate proposal to allow such a vote to take place at the AGM in question.
They even claimed the recording had been doctored like they were in an episode of CSI. If it wasn’t so serious it would have been laughable to the extreme. This COM will lie, lie and lie again to protect their own self interest. At your expense!
The 2018 AGM revealed that there was a COM meeting held in June 2018 under Chatham House rules, which means what is said at the meeting can be shared but who said what cannot. It was agreed at the meeting that any breach would result in removal from the COM.
After the meeting Anthony Street and Paul Brennan then spoke to another member of the LTDA and revealed the name of a person present and what he said at the meeting, leaving this member potentially accountable for the suspension of the branch and exposed to reprisals towards this member in clear breach of the Chatham House rule agreement and as such should be dismissed from the COM.
They both lied about revealing the name of this LTDA member at the AGM last week stating they could not remember saying the name despite being presented with clear evidence to support the breach against them at the AGM.
This leaves anything they say or do regarding the so called investigation into the Central Branch in question. In fact it puts every single email and statement they make into question.
Regarding this so called postal vote in the name of democracy ask yourself this.
Sets the questions?
Decides how often?
Nominates new members too stand for election?
Checks the results of the so called ballots?
That’s right… THE COM.
The same people that for 20 odd years have been telling you they’ve been fighting your corner. What have they won? Nothing!!
Not a single case of significance have the LTDA won. Uber, TFL, Credit Card Mandate, Bank Junction, CSH…
Do you trust them to be fair and transparent???
The LTDA say that most members are happy with them. Are you? Start asking serious questions about how the COM protect themselves at your cost.
You’ve suffered,,Have THEY!!!
Look closely, it’s not hard to see for yourself.
Doors Locked and Be Lucky 😉
