Calling for time with a rhyme

First published in Letters

Ode to a Councillor Councillor Knaggs –

Councillor Knaggs time to pack up your bags.

The Malton Gazette resounds with your name,

Do you really deserve such unrivalled fame?

The car park in Malton you wanted to sell

And just for good measure the bowls club as well.

At a recent enquiry you emphatically lost

Now expecting the Council to pick up the cost.

A Tory you may be - but isn’t it fair

That some other councillor takes over the chair?

As a long-time leader you’ve been in the fray,

Please give up the baton and call it a day.

Councillor Knaggs – Councillor Knaggs just pack up your bags

Ann Cleverly, Settrington

Rumour has it that you've got your wish Ann :)

Unfortunately, rumour also has it that he's been replaced by Cowling, who also supported the sales of the car park and bowls club. Just for good measure she also called those opposed to the sale of the car park, 'the moaning minies of Malton.'
