Cllr Bill Thomas has resigned as leader of Labour controlled Sandwell Council after being charged by the police with theft of a cheque. He will appear at Sutton Coldfield Magistrates on October 30.
Sandwell is among the politically correct Councils in Britain – this is in a highly competitive field. They propose a Gypsy Awareness Month in schools and cancelled the St George's Day parade. Of course such antics are a gift to the BNP who have two councillors in Sandwell. Elections will be held next year for a third of seats.
