sometimes its for the wrong sort of things and as a lord mayor he should be promoting the city and the good things rather than his agenda/political beliefs/ladder to being a reality star.

You are aware it is possible to dislike a person for being a buffoon regardless of their sex/colour/ethnicity/religion?

The new mayor wants all the media attention he can get, good or bad. when heís finished doing his stunt as mayor heís got some sort of hidden agenda.
Iím wondering if he wants to go on Britainís Got Talent, wearing his sombrero with one the magicians or musicians he wants to use to entertain at council meetings.

Which is what every Lord Mayor has done since Jack was a lad.
It's all part of the reason why someone wants to do the role - self promotion - although the past LM's would deny that, of course.
The only difference is that the current LM has been out with the community and not been hidden away in dusty corridors. He's 29 years old for goodness sake !
Good luck to him - the role has finally been dragged into the 21st century. He has certainly brought Sheffield into the news and not in a bad way imo.
He will be a very hard act to follow.

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about about...Oscar Wilde. Not much talk ever about previous mayors.

Lord Mayor must be 'mindful' over language - Council boss

Quote:
Sheffield's Lord Mayor needs to be "mindful of the language he uses" on social media, according to the city council leader.

Julie Dore was speaking to the BBC about Magid Magid's recent Tweet featuring a letter he's sent to the Home Secretary Sajid Javid calling for an inquiry into Orgreave

Mr Magid starts the letter "Ey up Saj, S'upwiya?" and ends it "Gi'oer with your rubbish!"

Ms Dore says she understands the spirit of the letter, but says Mr Magid needs to approach it differently.

"I do think he need to be a little bit more mindful of his approach and the language that he uses."

"The way and the manner in which he presents it maybe just needs a bit of adaptation," she adds.

She's one to talk isn't she?

Did you see that short documentary about the tree fellings when she firstly refused to stop and answer questions because she was "too busy" then when pressed she had a meltdown and screamed that the interviewer should be asking the police, not her.

Very professional Julie.

The man is a disgrace and an embarrassment to the city. The sooner he is gone the better.

Attention seeking clown .

That made me laugh!

I had two browsers open and thought I was on the Little Tommy Robinson thread. When I saw your post I thought "OMG Penny has finally seen the light!"

Magid Magid isn't even his name. Apparently Mohammed wasn't good enough for him. He changed it to Magid Magid - I guess it suits his persona/posing better.

Perhaps it was one better than Magic Magic? Or Magic Mike?

Why can't he change his name if he likes? Maurice Micklewhite recently legally changed his name to Michael Caine. He prefers the latter.

Not really.

He just got fed up with issues & delays at passport controls.

Can anyone tell me what his official role is ? Or what it’s supposed to be?

What sort of issues can be taken to him?

Thanks

Bill Stewardson.

Go and see one of your local Councillors if you have an issue.
The LM of Sheffield is purely ceremonial with some official Council business roles. Any matters sent to the LM will be transferred to your local councillor.
