After a cool £1million of council tax-payers money spent by Sandwell council on the Wragge report plus another £78,000 Sandwell spent on lawyers, in this case, Mr Justice Green has finally delivered his judgement in Hussain v Sandwell MBC.
An amusing incident is alleged to have occurred at the Tipton Sports centre during the election count. That is if Julian Saunders author of the Sandwell Skidder is to be believed, and, occasionally, he may be.
Congratulations to Sandwell MBC. Travellers who occupied Greets Green Park were moved on within 24 hours using bailiffs while the police, as usual, were passive observers. This demonstrates what can be done if the local authority only has the will to do it.
After the bankruptcy of Cllr. Richard Marshall became public, that gent’s position was discussed at the group meeting of Sandwell Labour councillors. Leader Eling told them that Marshall had tendered his resignation from the council cabinet but that he, Eling, had refused to accept it.
