Who actually wants to listen to this useless idiot, full of false promises.
I suppose as an elected politician it's just possible that some members of the public might have some element of agreement with his views. And even if you don't, then it might also be considered worthwhile listening given that he undoubtedly has influence and can implement changes that will affect you (assuming you are in his geographical area of control). 

A few years ago Bristol Council finally decided on the replacement wording for Edward Colston statue, then Mr Martin Ree's came in, tore it all up and tried to change it. That was until it got thrown in the Harbour when he turned around and said it should have never been up in the first place. I don't trust him one bit. That's as about as political as ill get lol

What was "finally decided" was watered down so much it was no longer a corrective plaque. The Merchant Venturers have now said they were wrong to have been involved in this watering down.
