Call for answers over Felmores bail hostel

Basildon Recorder: Gavin Callaghan Gavin Callaghan

LABOUR politicians have written to a Government minister to demand answers on the future of a South Essex bail hostel.

The future of the Felmores bail hostel is up in the air with the Essex Probation Trust looking to relocate it.

But the Government is looking for private companies to run some hostels that house medium and low-risk offenders from next year – a move which could see less notorious criminals housed in Pitsea.

Both Gavin Callaghan, Pitsea North West councillor, and Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for Tory Stephen Metcalfe’s South Basildon and East Thurrock seat, and Mike Le-Surf, have written to the Prison Minister about their concerns.

Mr Callaghan said: “The property was to move over into private sector ownership, this would mean the residents in the hostel would all be regarded as medium to low-risk offenders.

“This would go a long way to ease the worry of many local families living on the Felmores estate.”

Oh yes, Cllr Callaghan, needs to get his own house in check before he tries to sort out other problems.

Researcher for Steve Rotheram, anti trolling MP eh? I wonder what Mr Rotheram would say if he saw your Twitter page eh Callaghan? You're the biggest troll going.

How many Standards Boards complaints is it now, six or seven? Oh and there's your boss Nigel Smith live on radio the other day saying how he has "measures" in place to stop members of his group from trolling.

We'll see eh? Your next meeting is next week I believe. We'll see.

Hope you've got some good evidence ready Callaghan, for the crap you've been spouting about me. And it had better be something that would stand up in a court of law.

See you soon.

I will be dealing with you through the normal channels. You are not trustworthy. There will be witnesses. Have your "evidence" ready.... and I do not mean the cooked up hearsay published by the utterly unreliable Hope Not Hate and EDLnews mob.

Get your evidence of my alleged membership of EDL and BNP too.

You do not intimidate me.

Sort out your evidence... screenshots of hearsay and photoshopped and hacked rubbish simply won't do.

As a former councillor myself, I know the correct procedures and I will use them. You've got away with harassing people far too long. You are not fit for public office and myself and quite a few others are seeing to it that this will be exposed.

You think you've "exposed" me. You haven't. You haven't the intelligence to see you are exposing yourself.

I am going to see this through. I will be seeing you soon, via the correct channels.
