The card features a festive winter 1930’s view of Little Cassiobury House.

Mayor Thornhill said: "Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers provides practical and emotional support for families with at least one child under the age of five."

The money was raised through sponsorship from Sigma Pharmaceuticals, The Prince of Bengal, Freedom, The Harlequin Shopping Centre, Matthew Arnold & Baldwin Solicitors, Warner Bros Studios Leavesden, Humphreys Plus, Brasier Freeth, Kenwood, West Herts Golf Club and George Ausden Ltd.

Good PR for Dorothy and perfectly timed after the outcome of West Watford Allotments / Farm Terrace.

Don't believe the hype!

The charity and cause is commendable, but the timing looks suspicious. Anyone "can do good", but it depends on the motivation behind the action. It all just seems too convenient.

Shame for the allotments, shame for democracy and a shame for a weak opposition in Watford.

This is what we've ended up with in Watford, politics with no checks and balances, decisions that are made before consultation and made public after the theatre of consultation ......... And then the cherry on top of the icing on the cake is charity to act as a smoke screen publicised on Christmas Eve.

Wake up and smell the 'Turkey'!

What does one expect from a weak opposition (in terms of numbers) which either gets attacked on its record, Councillor histories or attacks itself (WCA being a case in point). The Liberals keep their marketing machine well oiled and seem to know how to play the game. There are lessons to be learnt.

If the numbers were there, cross-party support in opposition over certain issues might actually become effective.

The Liberals will probably find a way to spin negative feedback and publicity in their favour if they aren't already doing so.

Perhaps it's time that the wider public were 'educated' about the machinery of local politics. Then there might be informed democracy, rather than well timed and systematic manipulation of the local media by those with deep pockets.

The charity and cause are commendable as I have already stated. However, I stand by my comments as I am sure other people do too.

Dorothy is no more than a marketing machine and timing is everything in politics. It is not a case of being "mean spirited". In some way most of us contribute to charitable causes - directly or indirectly, financially or its equivalent, but few of us seek publicity for our efforts and even fewer seek to do so while in public office and fewer still after effectively 'robbing' the rights of West Watford allotment holders.

Cloaks and daggers, diversionary tactics, smokescreens and pulling at emotional heart strings are a common tactic to defend or soften the reality of the situation.

At least businesses are honest about their involvement in fund raising. Corporate Social Responsibility and community involvement are marketable assets and promote goodwill and positive brand image.

The "shame" is not with me, I give to charity and keep the matter private. I seek no credit, nor do most people. I'm a pragmatist, a realist and call it as I see it. If that is bigoted and pedantic, then so are you for seeing this as anything other than what it is.

I do not dispute that it is an annual occurrence and nor do I doubt that it is a worthy cause. However, I have an issue over the timing of the press release.

The timing of the press release (24th December 2012) just seems too close and convenient to the Farm Terrace decision of 21st December 2012.

In 2011, Dorothy's Christmas Card was reported in the WO on 12th December. In 2010, Dorothy's Christmas Card was reported in WO on 14th December. It was only in 2009, that it was reported on 21st December.

Had it been reported on or before 21st December, as in previous years, it probably wouldn't have received a positive spin since it pre-dated the unpopular Farm Terrace decision or was on the same day.

I can imagine the date of the press release being moved for spin purposes. That would have been a valid consideration if I were her PR consultant, especially if the consultation on Farm Terrace was no more than an exercise in democracy, with the decision already reached.

As I stated earlier, timing in politics is everything.

The allotment decision was unjust, the timing of the press release for the Christmas Card suspicious and your response lacks conviction.

Seriously, do you really think people who know about the allotment decision will suddenly change their mind about the council/Dotty because they have raised all this money for good causes?

Obviously there are two sides to every story, but I find it hard to believe that a well-oiled PR/Marketing machine would not have kept tight controls over the timing of the press release, especially if the decision over the allotments had already been reached.

People familiar with the allotment decision are not likely to change their minds over this, but how many have paid attention to the outcome of that decision?

Do you really believe that the WO independently decides on press release timing for Dorothy stories? I think not. If it were a national newspaper, the position is likely to be different, but a local newspaper is not likely to have that kind of editorial control or independence.

I see you're making good use of 'copy and paste'.

I disagree with you. I have dealt with the Watford Observer previously, albeit as an individual.

I would expect there to be a working understanding between senior public office holders and the local press and the timing of press releases. Not quite on par with the Royals and national press, but an understanding of sorts, nevertheless.

Stories are uploaded on a daily basis to the website. Given that some stories are fairly trivial, it is safe to assert that lack of space is not an issue for WO.

Add what you like to your list of insults, comments etc., it doesn't change the position.

I am still awaiting a rebuttal or riposte. All I have received from you is a list of personal insults, which do not qualify in this context. Nice try, but no medal.

Read my posts carefully rather than reading them to suit your limited responses. I stated that "some stories are fairly trivial". Your response does not rebut that statement.

Again, a strategy to evoke reader emotion, but has no substance as a response to my earlier statement. Yet another weak diversionary tactic.

Even the example you gave, which is not relevant here, shows the Liberals being attacked from a number of posters. Perhaps you should go in there and try to rescue your team mates, if you're 'man enough'.

And we're back to the guessing game with bluesky1(Councillor Steve Johnson)? The last Conservative Councillor standing ..... Just.

As I have said elsewhere, please report me to Standards if you think I'm Malcolm.

Read my posts. The charitable contribution is good, but the timing of the press release is suspicious.

I have a point of view, as do others. I am not shifting from that position.

I really must confess I don't know what the fuss is about.
I think it is good that some money was raised for charity.
I think it is obvious that anyone in the public eye that courts public approval would release that to the press.

My christmas cards didn't raise a penny. Because I didn't send any. Nothing to do with my religious beliefs (I enjoy the holiday and atmosphere as much as anyone) but because all year long people bang on about the environment.

I cannot, for the life of me, think of anything more wasteful than an inked picture on a piece of card with my name on it. After a couple of weeks this is then thrown away or 'recycled' (Heavily bleached in a massive factory run on coal/oil/gas and turned into inferior card).

If I am truly thinking of someone at christmas, I'll pop round and say hello, or give them a ring. If I send you a piece of paper with my name on it, I'm probably working from a list and not thinking of you at all, and I'm certainly not thinking of the planet.

Perhaps this is something you should address to Malcolm directly, mkhan1/Sanity750/And
rew Mortimer. I am sure you have his contact details, so contact him.

What has this to do with me?

As far as the tadpole goes, that's probably all the RSPCA allowed you take responsibility for.

You seem to be the one with a virtual identity crisis and intellectual deficit.

The more you respond, the more you expose your lack of credibility and child-like retorts. Perhaps this is a conversation you should have in the sand pit at the local children's nursery with Malcolm.

You'll have to talk to him to find out whether he's up for such a meeting. After all, he might ask to be Head Milk Monitor, or Junior Prefect or even Head Master.

Instead of an AGM there would be an official playground meeting. Do you want to Chair the meeting or would bluesky1 be charing?

You do make me laugh. LOL!!!

If I were Malcolm, do you think I would be sitting on the naughty step crying because allegedly no one in the Party of One Councillor likes me? I doubt it.

As for me, I haven't been a "good boy" for a long time. What are you going to do if I continue posting, come over here and smack me? That would be interesting. Although I suspect you might enjoy it a little too much.

And ....... what has this to do with the earlier discussion?

If you want to attack Malcolm, at least do so with something credible, tangible and sustainable rather than intellectually redundant grunts and posturing (careful, you might displace a hip, then where would the WCA Football Team be?)

Of course, you could be a double agent, working for another party, seeking to discredit the WCA. If that is the case, then you have done exceedingly well 'OLD BOY!"

You already are a laughing stock.

I have no issues with MY intellect. To quote something in language you might understand, "Stupid is as stupid does", Forrest Gump.

I can't stand text language and find it disrespectful, perhaps that's why Mohandas likes to use it when responding to you or perhaps he just can't be bothered typing his responses to you.

The standard of teachers was probably shocking in your day, which would account for your limited intellect and poor argument style. As I stated, "Stupid is as stupid does".

"Why do I keep responding?" Because I can and at the moment, Lord of the Rings 3 seems slow, so I guess you are my 'Comedy Channel' of sorts, albeit in the form of Bernard Manning .... still ..... on this site, 'beggars can't be choosers'.

It got interesting for a bit when you 'came out', but now you profess to change sex, as well as race. Incidentally, if you considered me to be Malcolm's wife, and you are female, then that implies that you are bi-curious or have lesbian tendencies. You can't have it every which way - no strategy, just basic reactive on-the-fly tactics.

As for Malcolm's future, that is no concern of mine, so I cannot comment.

Obviously you have lost all hope in your WCA, if you believe a Liberal paper candidate will step into Malcolm's seat. Again, a slap dash argument.

With such lack of coherent thinking, no long-game or strategy and reactive tactics on-the-fly, I am not surprised the residents dumped you as a Councillor.

You can't even decide on a consistent log-in name, change race and then sex as you please, and then you ditch WCA for the Liberals. For all intents and purposes, it appears you are confused not just with you identity, but your feelings, race, sex and your political allegiance.

Am I annoyed? - no.

I feel sorry for you having such a limited game plan. If I were you, I would go and have lunch with clarkie750 and bluesky1 and, of course, yourself (Sanity750). At least you would be on par with each other intellectually.

This whole thing with Sanity750/mkhan1 and bluesky1 has become so surreal that I have to put it into a context it deserves.

From now on I will refer to Sanity750/mkhan1 as Smeagol from Lord of the Rings and bluesky1 as Peter Griffin from Family Guy. This sums up their personalities and attitude. One is completely obsessed and repetitive ("my precious", which in this context translates to Malcolm) and the other says stupid one liners and loses steam to continue, a lot like Peter Griffin.

This thread is going to be dead by Monday anyway, so Smeagol and Peter Griffin make the best of it while you can ........ If you can. Let's see if both of you can up your game or at least try.

So far Smeagol has come out as a bi-curious, gay-lesbian, bi-racial, intellectually challenged bipolar individual. Who would have thought it! Come on Peter Griffin, top your colleague ...... Not easy to do, I know, but I'm sure you can find some intellectual stretch.

I'm going to be getting on with client work today, but will dip in and out to keep you company and myself amused. Last day of this thread, make the most of it.

Valid point, but not relevant here, since the story was uploaded on Monday 24 December 2012. I wasn't aware that there was a Monday edition of the WO.
No there isnt a Monday edition, but there was one the previous Friday and maybe that is when they printed the press release from the Council.

Its not an unreasonable assumption that they make most of their sales the Friday and then over the weekend and therefore wait till the Monday or later before putting stories that are in the print edition online.That sounds like common sense to me

If the press release was in the Friday edition, which would have been the same day as the decision then your point is valid.
