I would like to place on record that it is a pity that in times of turmoil, stress, uncertainty and ignorance that the best and the worst of us as individuals come to the surface. During these periods of unrest, chaos and hostility, a calm and cool head is needed.
My Army training always kicks in when faced with such odds. Those in the know will understand the abbreviation “SFW” when facing a new challenge. A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on: IT IS ALL GREEK TO ME
So now after almost nigh on two months the alleged civil war raging within the Pallaconian Brotherhood is soon to be resolved. Not by any so called olive-branches according to Mr Paul Sougleris who just loves the limelight but by the evidence, the facts and a realisation by the renegades that they are in the wrong. Mr Paul Sougleris is being joined by another political wannabe who dared tried to link my name with my love of the Liberal party and the Brotherhood. His political days are numbered.
As for a quick lesson in the Greek alphabet, this is my version of Leonidas assumptions of the Greek Alphabet. I can honestly say that “it’s all Greek to me”.
A. It is a well-known fact that I support the youth.
B. It is a well-known fact that I (we) support the Dance Group.
C. It is a well-known fact that I invited the Youth to be part of the Committee
D. It is a well-known fact that the Youth did not participate as much as they should have
E. It is a well-known fact that we had plans to provide a special room for the Dance group
F. It is a well-known fact that we had plans to provide a special place for the youth group.
G. It is a well-known fact that we supported the Dance group obtain their new costumes.
H. It is a well-known fact the Dance group instructors were paid by the Brotherhood.
I. It is a well-known fact that all Dancing lessons were and still are provided free by the Brotherhood.
J. It is a well-known fact that the Dance Instructor Joseph Tsombanopoulos abused the current President Kon Glekas in a letter and then sent an invoice to him so that he can get paid his salary. This is an unfortunate stain on his person.
K. It is a well-known fact that when I was President I was preparing Stacey Kanellakos to become a future President. Her father Jim Kanellakos advised me that Stacey was busy with her legal studies and getting married.
L. It is a well-known fact that the current Youth were not ready and are still not ready to take on the responsibility of management.
M. It is a well-known fact that I did not lock the doors to the Brotherhood Dance group.
N. It is a well-known fact that the Brotherhood is not about the Dance Group but more about its members. This has now been proven correct. The Brotherhood is still active and services still operating. The Brotherhood has NEVER been about the Dance group.
O. It is a well-known fact that the renegade illegal committee group is made up of five non-financial individuals and, three non-members. This hardly legal and or a representation of a Committee.
P. It is a well-known fact that no bullying was conducted against the dance Group.
Q. It is a well-known fact that Mr Paul Soug (Sougleris) uses his Facebook page to denigrate me with his trash, misinformation, defamatory statement and lies. He is not even a Lakonian and finds it entertaining to defame me.
R. It is a well-known fact that everything negative written about me and or disgusting images of me are wrong and misleading.
T. It is a very well-known fact that Chris Paikopoulos and his crew of pirates created this unhealthy environment by his mishandling of the Annual general Meeting conducted on the 9 October 2016.
U. It is a well-known fact that Mr Kon Glekas the current Brotherhood President, outfoxed, outmanoeuvered and strategically defeated Mr Chris Paikopoulos in his bid for power.
V. It is a well-known fact that I am being targeted by the renegades because I stand up to them.
W. It is a well-known fact that the renegades intimidated, shirt fronted, abused and threatened Brotherhood members and in the course of their actions damaged property.
X. It is a well-known fact that a non Lakonian has attempted to tie my political activities with that of the Brotherhood. In his attempts he was told to get lost and left with his tail between his legs. This is the same bloke who failed to win at the recent council elections and I was asked some months ago to support him for a safe Liberal party seat. It only took one telephone call and his political career was finished. He will soon realise not to distribute lies or spread misinformation.
Y. It is a well-known fact that I have stepped down from 99% of my community and political responsibilities due to ill health. (Cancer)
Z.It is a well-known fact that I rang the Brunswick Police to remove Chris Paikopoulos from my Committee of Management meeting as he was uninvited. I ran the Police because he wanted force himself upon the meeting. He had the gall to tell me that I did not know who he was and what he was capable of as well as telling me in front of witnesses for me to stop hiding behind my illness (CANCER). This hardly the person who demonstrates emotional maturity.
A – Z. It is a well-known fact that Steve Tsaganas and his wife Mary Tsaganas (despite their undermining), worked well while I was President. They unfortunately showed their true and treacherous colours by the defection to the group of renegades. Mary Tsaganas made it clear to me that she would never work under the leadership of Kon Glekas.
It is true that errors have been made and corrected. This something that is not being given due credence. It is true that the Committee of Supervision failed miserably and exceeded their responsibilities. It is true that three members of the Committee of supervision withdrew their nominations and were replaced. It is true that the Committee of supervision destroyed the legitimate nominations, only to be foiled by copies of originals been certified and used to create the Committee of management. It is true that the Brotherhood constitution states that the resolutions of members must be adhered to until they are changed by the members at an Annual General Meeting. (Something that the Committee of Supervision and Chris Paikopoulos failed to do).
It is also sadly true that the renegade group who have since been expelled attempted to take control of the Consumer Affairs Secretary role, that they attempted to freeze all the Bank assets, bring down the Brotherhood website, attempted by force to take over the Brotherhood building, placed illegal advertisement and expect the current committee of management to pay for their advertisements, they have defamed me and other members of the Brotherhood by their public online statements, intimidated, threatened and abused members as well as damage to property. Hardly the type of people that we want in the Brotherhood. GOOD RIDDANCE, YOU ARE NO LONGER WANTED OR NEEDED.
THERE IS NO TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT AN OLIVE BRANCH BY MR KON GLEKAS HAS BEEN EXTENDED. WHAT A LOAD OF HOGWASH. I AM OF THE STRONG BELIEF THAT THE RENEGADES HAVE MISLED MEMBERS, THE PUBLIC AND DELUDING THEMSELVES THAT THEY ARE CORRECT. IF THEY WERE THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN LEGAL ACTION IMMEDIATELY AND HAD THE MATTER SETTLED ONCE AND FALL. THAT IS THE CRUX OF THE MATTER. THEY KNOW THAT IF THEY GO TO COURT THAT THEY BRING THE BROTHERHOOD INTO DISREPUTE AD HAVE ALREADY BY THEIR ACTIONS ATTRACTED NEGATIVE PUBLICITY. MY ADVICE IS LET THE CURRENT COMMITTEE OF MANAGEMENT COMPLETE THEIR TENURE AND COME BACK IN TWO YEARS AND ALLOW THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS TO BE FOLLOWED.
I WROTE THIS OFF THE CUFF BECAUSE I AM FED UP WITH THE TRASH AND MISINFORMATION THAT IS BEING PUBLISHED ON SOCIAL MEDIA. SUCH FILTH AND TRASH IS BEING COMPLIMENTED BY THE IGNORANCE OF OTHERS WHO ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BELIEVE THE RUBBISH.
As always, apologies to purists for my poor grammar and savagery of the English language. I wish you all well and hope that this article does not cause ambiguity in the minds of those who read it.
