I was perusing through Facebook earlier. I am not a regular user with the exception of posting my blogs on the VFAN site and a couple of vacation pics the other week. I find some of what is on there a little puerile and egocentric. Seriously who is really interested in the fact that you are about to tuck into a huge plate of spaghetti carbonara at your favorite local eatery. But I digress. Sometimes though you stumble upon some real gems like the one below. I have blanked out the person’s name because they do not want any more hassles from their work or from our favorite local councillor:
Ian Chadwick’s political career reminds me of the life of a star it has gone from nebulous in 2003 through Super- Nova during Carriers administration to the black hole it is now.
From a blogging point of view this is pure gold dust though, take a look at what Chadwick then said during an election campaign, to a potential voter, on Facebook, when he is vying for votes, before a weekend when people are most likely to be making their voting decisions, you could not make this stuff up:
Someone must have thrown him a shovel to dig his political grave even deeper because he then finished his tirade off with this gem:
Unfortunately it worked because he bullied this poor guy into submission with his threats and ranting and this was then posted:
I did try to talk the guy out of doing what Chadwick had demanded and he asked me to not post on this. I offered to not post if he kept Berman’s logo, to no avail. My thought is that this situation is way too important to get hidden in the annals of Facebook because Chadwick has shown himself in his full glory and its absolutely disgusting. If I was the owner of this business I would be talking to my legal advisors right now. This actually reminds me of a politician in some failed state banana republic.
The above tale of woe should remind us all that you have to think very carefully about what you post on social media, in a small town, if you are not willing to stand up and be counted.
Note: My next post is called: Postscript on Ian Chadwick
