PBROTRIB SKETCH DIRTY ROTTEN BOROUGHS!
Have you seen the latest daft campaign from the Dear Leader, blue button man Cllr Gavin Elsey and the well minted Council PR department?
Seemingly promoting the Green Party...but in reality loads of rubbish, your rubbish - See some of it here as logged by Vincent Parker - (Gavins' hair gel, says a local wag, could possibly keep the new Incinerator powered up for a couple of minutes; less is more, Gav!); the campaign involves an app. for your I-phone called My Peterborough? But the trouble is, that it isn't, MyPeterborough, but someone elseys (see what we did there?!) MyPeterborough.
The someone else being an American outfit called Public Stuff.
Should anything go wrong, by the good citizens in our City registering and using the App. You dear trusting resident are now unwittingly part of the American Legal System and agree to defend any claim or action in NEW YORK and at your own expense!
|Hiya Poor People! Welcome to our world, Peterborians...|
Before you even consider registering and signing up for the MyPeterborough app. we suggest you (and the exceptionally well paid officers at Peterborough City Council) personally need to have very deep financial pockets and carefully read the 'small print' for example:
You will resolve any claim, cause of action or dispute (claim) you have with us arising out of or relating to this Statement or PublicStuff exclusively in a state or federal court located in New York, New York. The laws of the State of New York will govern this Statement, as well as any claim that might arise between you and us, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in New York County, New York for the purpose of litigating all such claims.
Or how about this kicker:
You [the stupid Peterborough resident who has innocently signed up for the My Peterborough App] agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless PublicStuff, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, parents and subsidiaries from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Site; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms of Service; or (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms of Service."
AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGG! Just so we understand this is all about money or rather the pressing £22 million public finance debt the No Overall Control Conservatives on Peterborough City Council need to urgently square this year and a greater £90+ million debt in years to come. Putting Cllr Turnip on the Audit Committee, clearly a master stroke Dear Leader! Plus the councils inability to clean our streets properly and dispose of refuse, which of course is their statutory duty.
Our advice is to ignore the My Peterborough app. - sign up at your personal financial peril - but just go to www.fixmystreet.com and also have a look at http://peterbourough.blogspot.co.uk/?view=snapshot.
Meanwhile we see campaigning has already started for the Local Government elections next May Cllr Turnip has declared and Darrell Goodliffe, bless, is already tramping up and down South Street in Stanground Central. Better get after the postal votes Darrell!
