Animal cruelty claim is ‘vicious vendetta’ - Torfaen councillors

ATTACKED: Councillor David Daniels, left, and Giles Davies, right, have been targeted in a document which alleged they support cruelty to animals

VENDETTA: The images on this poster were too graphic for us to show in full

First published in News South Wales Argus: Photograph of the Author by

TWO Labour councillors on Torfaen council have condemned a bizarre document which alleges they support cruelty to animals.

At a full council meeting the leaders of all four political groups on the council unanimously denounced the poster, dubbed ‘a vicious vendetta’ by a colleague.

Councillors David Daniels and Giles Davies were the two councillors attacked in the poster, which appeared on social forum Torfaen Matters on Facebook last month. It called for them to be sacked immediately, claiming they put politics before animal cruelty.

The document’s author alleges that the two councillors are in favour of animal cruelty after failing to denounce it in their response to other comments on the Torfaen Matters forum.

At a meeting of full council, the leaders of the four political groups on Torfaen council unanimously denounced the document.

Cllr Giles Davies, who owns three rescue dogs, said he had been left shocked and shaken by the attack.

“I never thought when I got into local politics I would ever face something like this.”

Cllr Daniels, said: “It has been very unpleasant to say the least. The document is appalling.”

Council leader Bob Wellington slammed the document.

He issued a statement which said: “I’m glad leaders of all political parties and the Independent group united to condemn this vile literature.

“It is clear a so-called keyboard warrior with nothing constructive to offer had hoped to conduct this cowardly and vicious vendetta from the shadows of social media.

“I hope the proper authorities trace the source of this warped material and deal appropriately with this individual.

“While bringing many benefits, if left unchallenged, social media can provide a toxic platform for unfounded allegations, misguided political points-scoring and unhealthy obsessions.”

I don't know the details behind this issue but it seems like they're getting a dose of there own medicine. Don't like it up em some might say. The Labour party in Torfaen have been involved in many a "vicious vendetta’ against non Labour councillors particularly independants who had the audacity to stand against them and win in what they thought were non contest seats. Maybe now they will realise how damaging these "vendettas" are to all involved and will stick to trying to improve the lives of people they represent. Or pigs might fly. But we must live in hope.

Bilbo, if you as you claim, you don't know the details and have not seen the document, then you really cannot comment. I have seen the document, and let me tell you, it was horrendous and could only have come from the mind of a disturbed person. Political tit for tat is an inevitability but this document took it to a completely off the wall level. Some of Torfaen's independent councillors do a great job while others are using it, and using the Facebook group, as a platform to spread their dirty right-wing politics

I resent it when one of these councillors claims there is a vendetta when they have refused to answer questions about the real harassment on Facebook. These "keyboard warriors" should stand up and be counted without wasting taxpayers time and money on their political games. The document images were from Cllr Mike Harris's link which both councillors chose to ignore and instead had a dig at him instead of showing any sympathy for the animals being cooked alive. The Twitter feeds show the truth and this is nothing more than Labour spin.

I can comment on what I like. I don't need permission from a Labour party lackey thanks. "dirty right-wing politics". Sound like that's straight from the Labour book of "how not to debate with one liners". I’ve done a bit of digging and the way I see it is that they took the “can’t offend anyone” option rather than condemn terrible animal cruelty. That’s their choice. I disagree entirely .You won’t here me calling them names though. Just wish they’d have the conviction to tell the truth.

Get a grip. Maybe the Labour party should lead by example.

I believe Joe public would prefer not to hear any of this nonsense that both sides are spouting particularly as it wastes the councils time discussing it. Nice to see there wasn't anything more important going on in Torfaen. I certainly condone that shameful waste of time and tax payers money.

It's as people are not reading what has been published here - the story is bogus and Twitter proves it.

Someone produced something that someone else doesn't like. Not something that wasn't true - just something they don't like. Get over it.

I've been waiting since 2003 for Labour to explain who wrote the dodgy Iraq dossier that resulted in the deaths of 100 000 woman and children and the suicide of Dr David Kelly - I don't see many Labour Party members being "appalled" by that.

If this "document" isn't true why did these councillors post those Tweets?

James, have you seen the document? It was straight out the mind of a sociopath. Mike Harris posted the original link as a tenuous and emotive means of showing why multiculturalism can't work. Animal cruelty was not his primary concern and this was quite obvious to most people who saw it.

littleface. Their Tweets show these individuals appear to have no concern for the plight of these animals and it is nothing more than a vendetta against Cllr Harris. Do you think being called a "Leftard" is worse than torturing and boiling dogs alive? They seem to.

That post was on the 22nd Jan and on the 6th Feb one councillor was saying "residents had contacted hime about the term leftard". Does that sound truthful to you?

I simply do not believe there are people in Cwmbran more offended by a word than cooking animals alive.

Say what you like about Mike Harris - it's a free country but do not accuse him of not being concerned about animals and dogs in particular- his ACTIONS and help for animals in distress go beyond anything I have heard of.

All this appears to be is Labour Party smear and spin. If those two were so concerned about those animals why haven't they signed the online petition against it?

The tweets show nothing of the sort. What they also fail to show is the history behind this debacle. That link and its initial post had very little to do with animal welfare and everything to do with making a cheap political shot. You seem to think people are daft enough not to be able to see straight through that. It's just the kind of arrogance displayed by the type of mind capable of creating the aformentioned document.

littleface. The original post is a link to an online petition about the terrible cruelty inflicted on animals by cooking them alive for restaurants in China. This petition has been signed by thousands of animal lovers around the world and in most people's opinion cooking animals alive has everything to do with animal welfare even if you personally seem to think it doesn't. Ask your children what they think.

Both Labour councillors tweeted about the post, including the picture of the petition link but neither of them mentioned these animals being tortured and just used their tweets as an excuse to smear Cllr Harris and make a cheap political shot.

There is no history here and you seem to think that people are daft enough not to be able to see through that. It's just the kind of arrogance displayed by the types of minds capable of creating the spin from this debacle in the way Labour slurred David Kelly and lied about Iraq.

If what you say is correct then why does one of the councillors state on Twitter he believes that by highlighting this awful practice it makes Cllr Harris "Worse than Nick Griffin" and neither even mention the petition?

And there it is. Within twelve comments, Labour supporters, hiding behind fake names like the keyboard warriors they are, start to smear or attempt guilt by association of something they don't like despite it's veracity.

The facts speak for themselves stfrancis and I never liked the dodgy dossier that was used to kill woman and children in Iraq either yet no one seems concerned over that.

The councillor Mike Harris posted the online petition, signed by thousands of concerned animal lovers worldwide and the reaction was one of sympathy for the dogs being tortured and boiled alive by every one who posted online except these two and that is around 29500 people saying one thing and these two saying another. Quite big odds I think.

Instead of just signing the petition to stop the cruelty or ignoring the post, they chose to use Twitter to effectively state Mike Harris was worse than Nick Griffin. That was what the Tweet said.

That is hardly the type of response from an animal lover or someone moved or concerned by the photo they posted.

The other councillor who had already had some bogus complaint he had made to the ombudsman about Mike Harris being racist (using local taxpayers money of course not his) chose to complain about some silly word he didn't like and later stated residents in Cwmbran had asked it's meaning. I find it hard to believe people were more concerned over a name than "mans best friend" being tortured.

Again not one word of sympathy or shock at the torment of these dogs despite his degree in animal behaviour and to date it appears neither of these two have signed the online petition to stop this behaviour.

The facts speak for themselves and no amount of protest by these two will convince me otherwise. If they don't like something or think it's unfair they should just ignore it and not use it as a political tool.

I will make no further comment since it is clear the Labour Party smear machine is spinning like mad to try to bury the truth. It's a shame the people who elect and pay for these two councillors don't have them spending their time on things of benefit instead of playing on computers all day.

The following is the post by Cllr Harris on Torfaen Matters that sparked the PDF;

"Multicultural Britain ... My backside! When will the leftards understand how different the indiginous (sic)citizens of Western Civilised Great Britain are to the rest of the world"?

Does this look like a post intended to highlight a horrible practice, or as most would see it, a cheap political points scoring exercise to highlight Cllr Harris vehement antithesis to multiculturalism? There is no evidence this practice occurs in the UK, so why the first sentence?

This is not about a petition, this is about a a vile document that is based on lies and smears, end of. The document was posted by one Pat Bowden, James Dexters name is cited on the PDF as the author, he denies this, stating that he has been set up. James Dexter is a friend of Pat Bowdens, he admitted on Torfaen Matters that he had just spent a week with him/her- there is some confusion about gender.

On the 27th of Feb this conversation took place on Torfaen Matters in a conversation about Pat Bowden.

James Dexter; Very good friend of mine Paul that I have just spent the week with as it happens...

James Dexter; Which can be confirmed by my Mrs and several other people (Mike Harris thinks Pat is "an idiot abroad")...

The document was posted by one Pat Bowden, James Dexters name is cited on the PDF as the author, he denies this, stating that he has been set up. James Dexter is a friend of Pat Bowdens, he admitted on Torfaen Matters that he had just spent a week with him/her- there is some confusion about gender. On the 27th of Feb this conversation took place on Torfaen Matters in a conversation about Pat Bowden. James Dexter; Very good friend of mine Paul that I have just spent the week with as it happens... 59 minutes ago via mobile · Like James Dexter; Which can be confirmed by my Mrs and several other people (Mike Harris thinks Pat is "an idiot abroad")...

If you say so James, I mean Roger, I mean Pat, I mean Bilbo, I mean Robert, I mean...you get the picture.
Back from the hills. Bit chilly up there. Unless I have a serious undiagnosed personality disorder (I'm not totally discounting it) then I can assure you that I’m not James, Roger or Pat (I did dress up as Pat Butcher once for a fancy dress party but that was a one off). I have never posted under a different name. Bit arrogant thinking there couldn’t possibly be more than one person who doesn’t agree with you but nice little tactic though. What was this all about again?

Not arrogant at all when you know that no one on Torfaen Matters has defended the PDF apart from James Dexter and the fake profile "Pat Bowden". No one in their right mind would defend and/or support it.

Familiar term, "Liebour". Used ad nauseum by Mike Harris and James Dexter on Torfaen Matters.

Could you expand on what you say is "liebour spin" because this very much looks the other way round.
