This mornings news: Labour party officials have stated that the councillor has NOT been dismissed, as they are awaiting the outcome of Police reports!

This story appears to me to be cut and dried case.

This could not have come at a better time with the local elections or a better place. So many asians make curropt politicians they should be banned from all kinds of power they just abuse it like they do in their own lands. I would really love it if a BNP woman candidate beat him in the elections in May it would destroy his frail manhood most probably.
