Yes, I saw that too. Was dithering about putting it up. Presume if it's already in the public domain AND you credit the source it'll be OK. ???

Who knows these days. I thought that it might be interesting to find out if the matter had been aired locally at all because the person involved apparently refused to be 'gagged' and some sort of solution had been arrived at.
I hope that the elderly and disabled people really have had their lot improved by his actions.
Well don that man !!

Are you talking about this?
http://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/897642...own_hall_chief/

The guy took a pay off of thousands (council taxes) to keep his mouth shut, then he went to the papers (didn't give the money back) & know he wants to work for the council again. What a guy!
