Councillors, bless 'em

Dodgy LibDems General

The day Leader Councillor Goddard was defenestrated.  Yay!

I note Mr Goddard had expenses claims for unspecified things. Given Mr Goddard's reputation, and who am I to judge if it is deserved or not, was any attempt made to query these "unable to verify" amounts?

Unable to verify £115.08  
£14.00  Unable to verify
£26.10  Unable to  Verify
£37.00  Unable to verify

What exactly was this for? -

"Councillor McAlister - Flight from Frankfurt £577"
What did McAllister do?  Hire a private jet?


The latest councillor allowances.

Councillor White was an Executive Councillor whilst all this was going on. Why didn't he ask the questions?  He agreed to  me being banned as vexatious for asking questions.  It is a shame he didn't get his finger out and start asking.  It was, after all, what he was paid to do.

Councillor Meikle actively voted down a high quality development of the site supported by local residents and businesses in favour of the people she was fully aware had allowed the Precinct to get into this state. Why would she do that? Why is she now bleating about being let down by them? What else could she have expected?  Why did she not vote through the superb development planned by the Lisburne Group?

Dear FOI Officer
Councillor Mark Weldon was not present at the last Licencing Committee meeting. I suspect he was out electioneering, which is not what I pay him to do. Please let me know his official reason for absence, as no apologies for absence were read out (as usual).
Kind regards

Councillor Weldon doesn't turn up for a council meeting (which I pay him to attend) at electioneering time and the Council is not told why he didn't turn up. Sloppy!

Subject: Re: Corruption?


Why did you send me your private email address when you thought Tory corruption might be involved?
The belief is that Cllr Goddard was an associate of such people. When he was an associate and when they died was immaterial. As I recall from my past reading of the Commons statement, association with a gangster is what was alleged.
Anyway, that is all water under the bridge. I don't know why you brought it up.

Kind regards
