After the Labour party’s long delayed suspension of Cllr. Richard Marshall, there are signs that the party may, at last, be starting to put its house in order. So far it’s only a little light dusting rather than a full spring clean and this has only been done under pressure.
Ex Sandwell mayor and former councillor Derek Rowley appears to have been knocked off his perch and suspended. The immediate cause seems to have been a fracas at the meeting to select Labour’s candidate for the Great Bridge ward in the May, Sandwell council elections.
