For a long time now I’ve had my tongue tied by red tape. I’ve been unable to comment on something which ruined a lot of the end of my time at NE1fm 102.5 – and something which has upset a handful of almost life long friends.
Tonight I decided enough was enough after reading more black and white tweets from someone painting a picture that they have been completely wronged by NE1fm 102.5. As someone no longer working for the station I finally felt it was time to pass comment on the subject. Also because I’m tired of being made out as part of a group of bullies.
The person in question keeps writing to councillors & MPs trying to fight against a decision the station made. He has written to more than a couple that I am aware of. The councillors/MPs do a tremendous job of writing to the station asking for information on the issue and when they receive the station’s defence I can only assume they agree with the decision and tell their constituent they cannot help. I assume this because the person keeps going to different people – a bit like going to your Dad when your Mam says no.
I’ve done my best to show the conversation in its entirety below. It may change as I find bits I may have missed out due to Twitter’s rubbish conversation listing thing.
If one MP doesn’t get you what you want, write to another. It that one doesn’t work write to another one. Etc etc.
Perhaps though when you’re not getting anywhere you should perhaps assume the person you’re complaining about has a solid defence. #realtalk
I’m sitting on the biggest bombshell. It’s ticking. #ticktockticktock
Dido – No Angel. Love that song title. #realtalk
@kevatkinson no individual person was as I presume your last 2 tweets are on about me although I don’t see why as you’ve left NE1fm & cbit
I can play the game too @DeanWears – do you want to play the innocence game?
@kevatkinson how do you mean re-tweeting stuff? Someone just sent me a pic of your tweets. I’ve not aimed nothing at any individual person
You’re using double negatives @DeanWears – please be more clear, I retweeted to give context to my followers.
@kevatkinson cbit & ne1fm matters do not concern you now & any issues I had weren’t personally with you
You lied about me in a letter @DeanWears so it does concern me. You’re painting a picture that you are free of blame. You’re not.
But you are wrong @DeanWears – I simply said you picked my daughter up without permission and smacked her head off a desk. You did. No lies.
@kevatkinson I didn’t do such thing,if I had youd of said something when it allegedly happened not when others started saying stuff about me
You’re right that I threatened you though @DeanWears – with a solicitor for making unfound allegations and for defamation of character.
I’m sure you’d agree @deanwears I’m a loyal friend. I helped you out a lot with a lot of things. To claim I bullied and harrassed is unfair.
@kevatkinson if you were such a loyal friend youd of helped me when it mattered most when people turned against me instead of doing the same
I was your friend @DeanWears – you know that. You ended the friendship when you made unfounded allegations against me to Newcastle Council.
@kevatkinson nope the friendship went wrong when you jumped on the band wagon of whoever started it up against me, yous all went against me
Ok @DeanWears – can you explain why some people contacted me to tell me you had asked them to report us to MPs despite them having no issue.
@kevatkinson I’ve not been in contact with many people & have kept silent other than to the MPs, don’t believe everything that you hear
You did it today @DeanWears – you told someone to and I quote “get onto an MP about them too”.
Who do I believe though @DeanWears multiple people telling me what you’re doing or someone who’s just lied about me?
@kevatkinson I haven’t lied about you though just pointed out you had made allegations etc against me which was true
I did not make an allegation against you @DeanWears I stated a fact.
An allegation @DeanWears is “a claim or assertion that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically one made without proof.”
@kevatkinson you made the allegation after others started going against me, you could of kept out of it & spoke to me 1 on 1 as a friend
@kevatkinson because he contacted the station over a year ago & hasn’t had any communication, numerous people tell me it isn’t ran properly
Then you’re misinformed @DeanWears – the station posted tremendous figures end of last year and early this year. You’re misinformed.
@kevatkinson not on about audience, I’m on about in terms of communication & people wanting to volunteer not getting response
You haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about @DeanWears – you’re quoting your own assumptions as fact. You’re talking rubbish.
I’ll leave you with this @deanwears – you did something so serious the station had to report it to the appropriate agencies. (continues)
And that @deanwears is the sole reason the station cannot defend itself publicly. Your claims are not as black and white as you claim.
Anyway @deanwears I wish you the best with what you do in the future. I left for new challenges and am enjoying just that.
I think that covers everything. I’ll clean this up as I go as the quoting Twitter feature is rubbish on WordPress.
