This blog has repeatedly criticised bent West Midlands Police (WMP) for their protection of certain councillors and failure to investigate fraud and corruption throughout the Cooper/Britton years. But after 40 years of grovelling to Labour the Cowards in Blue are so controlled by the corrupt Council that a councillor (or councillors) asks them to jump and they simply say "how high?".
At least one of the so-called "socialists" (and I think I know who) complained to the police about the tour. It seems this may have been at a meeting on 23rd March. Now you would think that WMP had enough on their plates in a Borough riddled with crime to laugh this off but oh no! On Tuesday a Sergeant Badham [amendment - correct name is Sergeant Streatham] from Smethwick Nick phoned The Skidder and requested details of the route! I don't know what he had been told but WMP seem to have got the impression that the tour is some sort of act of protest. Fair play though, he was anxious to advise me that WMP didn't wish to interfere in my right "to peaceful protest" which is gratifying as I thought that was a given in our (partly) democratic country.
I thought that would be an end to the matter but I now understand that yesterday WMP emailed certain councillors concerning the tour. I have not seen the email (though a request is winging its way to Lloyd House) but what the hell is going on here? I have joked often that Oldbury is twinned with Pyongyang but.......
So stand up to this bullying and join our fun tour! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course, visitors to the self-proclaimed dog-sh*t capital of Britain should take all due precautions especially as SMBC laid out a "ceremonial avenue" of six dog-turds near the Council House in Oldbury last week in memory of the late woman-bullying thug Darren Cooper!
