A Fairy Story
« on: February 01, 2020, 18:21:44 »
As someone who has been banished twice from allotments the subject of governance interests me.

Lets start with a new rule (rule 99) from the new chairman and his merry men
"no allotment holder shall do or say anything that acts against the aims or interests of the association" - sounds ok?

Now the new ruler (elected at an agm with only 10% attendance) turns rogue, and coopts his mates onto the committee.

He becomes a dictator, throwing lots off their plot, even old timers, under rule 99., and lets his mates have plots, bypassing the waiting list.

Darkness descends on the members, and plot holders tremour when the new ruler arrives on their particular site flanked by his band of heavies.

The year passes with many evictions, but bravely the remaining plot holders attend the next agm with a hero who wants to stand against the dictator.

Unfortunately the ruler rules out the hero on the grounds that he has had a complaint made against him and is therefore unsuitable to stand for chairman.

The ruler continues to rule by default as there is no other candidate.

So is it hopeless for the masses?

How do people think this could have a happy ending?

Only those who like fairy tales can reply.

Easy way to a happy ending, get the writer of said fairy tale to invest in some therapy. When they are completely cured they will no longer believe in conspiracy theories and live happily ever after.

Sorry Ace.  What I meant to write is how far apart should I plant my onions?

Sorry that you feel that way. I don't approve or disparove of Ace's reply  becasue this did after all start off as a " fairy story"

If I wrote my  post again I would have made it clear that I thought both of you could do with a chill session, as the whole thread just seemed to be  two members winding each other up for no good reason.

If you choose to leave the forum it will be a shame as you make some good points however these "Fairy and made up tales" that you have started on a few occasions seem to me to have no point.  If you do have genuine grievances members will help you to the best of their ability but with these sort of threads if it goes a bit pear shaped then it's not surprising.

I think Pumpkinlover has given good advice and whether a4a members wish to read it and move on or not is their own decision. We are all such different people and characters, drawn together for the love of gardening and growing our own fruit and veggies. We look for advice, expertise, ideas, fun, and friendship whilst sharing tips, experiences, and knowledge with others. We are all passionate gardeners.

Like Pumpkinlover, I agree it would be a shame for you to leave nodig, you are part of what makes this forum so lovely  :wave:
