Technical Blog - Squealer - Standards Complaint

I have tonight put in a Standards Complaint to SMBC re Steve "Squealing" Eling. As the bent Council's highly controversial Monitoring Officer, Surjit Tour, appears to be directly involved in some of the matters I have addressed the complaint to the Deputy Monitoring Officer.

Here is the complaint:




Between (at least) 14th August, 2017 and 30th July, 2018 Steven Eling used an official SMBC account (and probably taxpayer-funded SMBC equipment) for purely party political purposes ie to pursue a personal vendetta against me.

Eling used his personal email account on two occasions but otherwise used his official SMBC email account to instruct a local police puppet, one Baker, and to encourage the instigation of criminal proceedings against me.

The emails I have seen to date are, mostly, heavily redacted. SMBC should soon be releasing unredacted copies to me pursuant to a Subject Access Request and I reserve the right to make further particularised complaints in due course. From the redacted copies, however, it appears that Eling was referring to his position as Leader of the Council in an effort to represent that he was acting on behalf of SMBC to the said Baker whereas he was trying to save his own skin following my publication of a WhatsApp feed and other disclosures about him. He did this for purely Party political reasons and to try and divert attention from his own misconduct.

Eling procured and/or sought to procure the involvement of two senior Council Officers in this Party political matter namely Jan Britton, Chief Executive, and Surjit Tour, SMBC’s statutory Monitoring Officer. Both senior officers are in politically-restricted posts and are supposed to maintain political neutrality. Eling actively procured the direct involvement of Britton in purely party political matters eg the said Britton himself became involved in mailing the puppet police officer on a Party political matter using his official SMBC title and email account (and, presumably, taxpayer-funded SMBC equipment).

Eling sought to procure the involvement of the said Tour in a purely political matter by repeatedly copying him into emails sent via his official SMBC account.

Eling has fixed SMBC with potential liability for libel by using official SMBC emails to defame me to third parties whilst copying in the said Britton, Tour and others. That will be the subject of separate legal action but also constitutes a breach of standards.

Eling used an official SMBC account to send what he calls “information” about me to the said police puppet (and copied to others). Insofar as the said mails were not grossly defamatory (see previous paragraph) they also constitute an improper use of taxpayer-funded SMBC accounts and equipment.

It appears that Eling procured other taxpayer-funded SMBC staff to unlawfully and/or improperly collate information against me to pursue a political vendetta against me. He also sought to procure that Britton and other staff breached Data Protection law by disclosing the said information for Party political reasons.

At 10.39 on 18th March, 2018 used his official SMBC email account to contact the said Baker with derogatory comments about my support for the Justice 4 The 21 Campaign ie the campaign by bereaved families for the truth about the mass murder of their loved ones. This is not, in any sense, a SMBC matter and Eling had no right to make derogatory remarks via official channels about my support for the group. It is possible that he has also made derogatory remarks about the campaign but he is declining to release the full email to date or to explain his extraordinary behaviour.

Breaches of Conduct

Code 1.5 - You must not bring your office or authority into disrepute.

The facts above should mean that no further comment is required here. Eling has sought to use his position and his official SMBC equipment to attempt to protect his own Party political interests and to pursue a political vendetta.

The attack on a third party for support of a campaign group brings his office and the authority into disrepute. Eling is a long-standing politician and well knows the history of West Midlands Police in fitting up innocent men in respect of the mass murder and then seeking to this day to cover up the truth about this and other aspects of the investigation. To seemingly denigrate the bereaved families by using SMBC to pass “information” to the same force is shameful and demeaning beyond belief.

Eling also managed to acquire a copy of a legal statement that I provided to solicitors acting for then Cllr Hussain. Eling as a long-standing local government employee and councillor knew full well that the said statement was a confidential document (and also, possibly, still subject to legal professional privilege). Nevertheless he disclosed it to a third party without my knowledge of permission. He further stated at the time that he was doing so purely in an attempt to exonerate himself in respect of another standards complaint outstanding against him.  This was a clear breach of confidentiality and, possibly, Data Protection provisions.

I would respectfully remind you that this is not the first time I have had cause to complain about Eling and his political cronies misusing confidential information.

Code 1.7 - You must not bully any person.

It is difficult to think of a more egregious example of non-physical bullying. Eling not only sought to bully me but to criminalise me leading potentially to my imprisonment. His main motivation was to “get” me - particularly in respect of my disclosure of his secret dealings with me. That was his prerogative had he chosen to pursue that course of action via his own resources but he chose to maintain his political vendetta using SMBC equipment and communication channels and by misusing the resources of the authority.

On 17th April, 2018 Eling used official SMBC channels to purport to the said Baker that he was acting on behalf of an employee, one Sarah James. He used SMBC channels to make derogatory and defamatory comments about me in respect of a legal issue between myself and Ms James which has nothing whatsoever to do with SMBC. This is another example of his use of official SMBC channels to pursue a purely political vendetta against me, once again bullying me and bringing himself and SMBC into disrepute.

Code 1.9 - You must respect the impartiality and integrity of the authority’s statutory officers and other employees.

 Eling procured the involvement of staff to prepare screenshots and other documents in pursuit of a purely political vendetta in breach of the code.

 Eling did, in fact, procure the direct involvement of an employee, Jan Britton, in his political vendetta knowing that Britton was in a politically-restricted position and supposedly in a politically neutral role.

By repeatedly copying in the said Tour, the statutory Monitoring Officer, in his emails to the puppet police officer he sought to unlawfully present that he acted with the authority of the Council itself whilst actually pursuing a purely personal animus towards me and a Party political vendetta. It is not yet clear what role the said Tour played in this sordid affair and I reserve the right to make further particularised allegations once the unredacted emails become available via the outstanding Subject Access Request.

Code 1-11: You must only use the resources of the authority in accordance with its requirements…[and] that such resources are not used for political purposes (including party political purposes)...

Eling knew exactly what he was doing and, in fact, did use his personal email account on two occasions to pass information to the puppet policeman. He made sure that all other communications were sent via official SMBC channels - a gross and blatant misuse of the authority’s resources.

Code 1-12: You must promote and support high standards of conduct when serving in your office.

If Eling had genuinely been acting in the interests of the authority all communications should have been made in measured terms by the paid service. But this was a personal Party political vendetta presented in the most childish and hysterical fashion by someone using official SMBC channels and using and/or attempting to use members (including very senior members) of the paid service to do his personal business. This conduct was unlawful, improper and disgraceful.

As above, I reserve the right to amend this complaint when SMBC provide the unredacted emails.

Sarah James of GMB Sues Skidder for £50K

Local GMB rep, Sarah James, has issued High Court Proceedings against the Skidder claiming damages of up to £50k. The Skidder has no money but has a half share in the matrimonial home. James's GMB-funded Solicitors say if I can't pay damages and High Costs they will force myself and my wife out of our home of 35 years via an order for sale.

Sarah James will be known to readers of this blog as the woman behind the shocking bullying of me nearly five years ago in Wetherspoons Oldbury. Strangely, none of that is mentioned in her High Court Claim against me. You can read the original story here:

One of the main planks of her claim against me is that I wrote that she and her husband were ALLEGEDLY - quote ALLEGEDLY given a Sandwell Council house via political string-pulling. (I also queried how her and her husband were eligible for Council housing given their seemingly substantial joint earnings. This has not been answered but does not form part of her claim).

Neither Ms James nor her husband ever bothered to contact this blog (via the many channels available - see below) to say that this ALLEGATION is true or untrue. Had she done so I would have happily placed his of her comments on this blog. But they didn't.

It appears from correspondence via her solicitors that she IS now saying there was no political string-pulling in the grant of her council house (though she has declined to deal with the question of financial eligibility).

If, as APPEARS to be the case, she is saying she did not get the house via political skullduggery then I am very pleased to publicly confirm that here. This will be very good news to me and to all Skidder readers. Ring out wild bells!

Just last week Ms James was at an event to try and fast-track women into Labour parliamentary seats. She is being heavily promoted by London resident MP, Tom Watson:

Incidentally - perhaps a couple of my Labour Party friends can help me? Firstly, I had mentioned that Darren James had been appointed to the Local Campaign Forum in this blog. Am I correct in saying that body was suspended/disbanded under a cloud (though seemingly nothing to do with Darren James I hasten to add). Secondly, what happens if there is a snap general election in the current febrile atmosphere. Could Watson parachute our Sarah into a seat?

Sh*thole Sandwell Digest 01/12/18 (Belated double edition)

Apologies for no digest last week but I have recently had an op and I was hors de combat for a short while. This is a double edition to keep you going and normal service should now be resumed with the digest returning as a weekly publication every Saturday. Please feel free to contribute!

I know this is the pot calling the kettle black but one league table where the folk of Sadders are always riding high is that relating to obesity - child and adult. The ludicrous liar  "Cllr" Elaine Costigan (more below) is the corrupt Labour Council's crime AND health supremo - "lol" - based in Wednesbury. In 2016 the grandstanding comrades claimed that they would be clamping down on hot food takeaways but, as ever with the sleazy socialists, this is the usual piss and wind. They presented a special planning document no less promising to get tough on HFT's. These require A5 planning consent but a cunning developer (Derek Foster of Cannock - see below) appears to have noticed Sandwell's feeble new "policy" and applied for combined A3/A5 consent - seemingly on the basis that one can also park one's enormous buttocks on a couple of seats in this place and sluice this muck into one's guts from a seated position. And so the Labour Council decreed that this was not JUST an A5 application and so the bullsh*t "special" policy didn't even apply! Permission granted in record time! No doubt Inane Elaine and Zorro will be hastening round with a "Wednesbury BID" application form in the very near future....

This blog has featured the corrupt "love-in" between WMP and Sandwell Labour on many occasions and is starting a regular "Copsuckers" feature real soon. Of course, the moral Cowards in Blue have to engage with the community and commit some resources to crime prevention etc but they seem to have gone overboard in Sadders. According to their numerous Twitter accounts WMP officers attend meetings and community events for hours on end rather than being out nicking, er, villains. I myself have personal knowledge of this at the moment and a WMP PC officer told me last week that he had not progressed a matter as he was having "difficulty" contacting a very well-known Sandwell person! The junior noddy force of PCSO's seem to do nothing else than grovel to Labour Councillors and guzzle tea and biscuits.... Here are some recent tweets. You would imagine therefrom that Sandwell is an oasis of calm and good order but I have juxtaposed the blue propaganda with some gritty reality:

(In picture 1, I wonder whether Zahoor regaled the officers with the story of that unfortunate business in the Nineties.....)

As ever, Costigan is quick to try and gain some self-publicity:

And you always have to have a Labour Councillor present if there is an anti-crime initiative and tag them in a tweet. Compare and contrast this heart-warming scene with some of the distressing car/van thefts in the real world:

Finally on crime, remember the other week when Sandwell College kids were running amok in West Bromwich? The cops had to take out a special order for extra stop and search powers etc to try and quell the lawlessness. You will be glad to know that all is now well and law and order has been fully restored ("lol"). Indeed the PCSO's are off the streets again and breaking the "rich teas" with the hooligans....


Most people in Wednesbury I spoke to actually thought it was a joke when I said a new pub (the former George Inn) was to be named after William "Bill" Archer but lo, it has come to pass:

This reminded me of an issue that has been outstanding for a long time but has remained unresolved. Did the late Mr Archer have a criminal conviction? Many, many people assured me that he had including several Sandwell Labour Councillors and other Party members. But no-one has actually come up with any evidence of this. Does anyone out there know the truth?

A while ago I wrote - as a citizen journalist - to Elaine Costigan asking whether "Bill" had had a brush with the law or not (this was a matter of public interest as Elaine was using his allegedly good reputation to burnish her own tarnished one - "ROFLMAO"!). At this time she was presenting a farrago of lies about me to WMP (see posts passim) and their Complex Crime Unit (CCU) - no less - interviewed me (see above - it's a lot easier to try and ram a cactus up my derriere than go out and collar real crims!)

But Costigan raised this issue with the Police. She provided a statement (riddled with falsehoods) and complained that I was guilty of criminal harassment simply for asking that question.!!! A sensible police force would have simply informed her that I had not, in fact, committed a crime by asking a question but such is the determination of Rich Baker and Co to be seen to be shafting me this nonsense was seriously put to me in the course of a very lengthy interview (posts passim). On legal advice I was giving a no comment interview (which was just as well as the two interviewing officers lied to me and my solicitor and tried to fit me up - all on tape!) They read part of Inane Elaine's work of fiction out to me wherein she went on at length that her father was a latter day saint and probably the nearest thing to Mother Theresa Wednesbury is ever likely to encounter. Although I was giving a "no comment" interview I asked as a point of clarification whether Bill did, indeed, have a criminal conviction. The officers looked at each other in shock and I gained the distinctive impression they didn't actually know. Think about that - they were quite prepared to accuse me of a serious crime for simply, as a journalist, asking a polite question and irrespective of the truth. Eat your heart out Franz Kafka!

After the interview I contacted the CCU in writing and asked them if Archer had a criminal conviction but they refused to tell me!!!!! I was facing potential criminal charges thanks to a liar and yet they declined to tell me the truth - either way! If he didn't have a conviction why not tell me?

Of course, this doesn't matter much with regard to the pub-naming. There are many pubs called, for example, "The Dick Turpin" but it would be nice for townsfolk to know that a criminal record will not debar (no pun intended) them too from having a Wednesbury hostelry named after them for posterity! And most good pubs acquire a nickname so if the allegation is true the pub could become (with a nod to the new trendy beer craze) "The Crafty Crim" or such like (suggestions on a postcard please!)

I did not know much about Archer but was stunned that the police put to me that he had been such an amazing force for good. He is clearly not the same person as this "Tory Fuckwit Bill Archer" who attacked Cllr Simon "The Sandwell Slasher" Hackett for wanting a bit of paternity leave in 2007. This from a contemporaneous blog - not mine - (the "Dave" referred to is David Cameron of Brexit disaster infamy):

What a guy THIS "Bill Archer" was!!!!!


The Wolvo C*c ksuckers - now without Herr Goebbels at the helm - breathlessly recorded the latest publicity stunt from London-resident Tom Watson who claims he is sometimes the "MP" for West Bromwich East. Watson, who failed to get a degree despite several years drinking "snakebite" at Hull University, underwent a brain scan. Predictably nothing was found lol!

Bent Lion Farm Deal - An Odd "Coincidence"!

The other day I put up the notice from a PR company, Lexington Communications, about corrupt Sandwell Labour's bent deal to develop 19ha of green space at Lion Farm:

It is odd that the first event is at Portway Lifestyle Centre. Although this is nominally run by Sandwell Leisure Trust the corrupt Council pull their strings.

Lexington claim to be acting for the developer but Eling, Moore and "Dr" Alison Knight are trying to force this through and f*ck over Lion Farm and other Sandwell residents. The developer, Jeremy Knight Adams, is a massive TORY donor but Eling is apparently desperate to kiss his ring,

And yet this is the bio of the man who set Lexington up - spot the inevitable Liebour Party connection:

Yet again a massive stink is rising from this con.....

As you know I was thrown off the "official campaign" against this fraud by Peter Durnell. He recently attended a meeting with the head of Sandwell's bent paid service, Jan Britton, and "Dr" Alison Knight. A representative from the Warley League was also present. I am informed that Britton did not make any reference to the proposals which are now subject to this media splurge and alleged "consultation" whatsoever. Looks like "Jan the Man" pissed down Durnell's leg and told him it was raining! So much for "consultation" Sandwell-style!

I am still in this fight though am just recovering from an op. I am starting a seperate blog on this fraud so that we can approach solicitors with information readily to hand. If you are contacting Lexington and do not wish to remain anonymous can you please sent a copy of your objections to me, Jules, at:

and I will put them on a "rolling blog".

 (In any event you should keep a record of an objections you make as corrupt Sandwell have a habit of "losing" these things!)

Jan Britton's Staff P*ss On Taxpayers' Alliance

Time and time again we have seen Jan Britton's bent paid service involved in fraud, corruption and incompetence though all, seemingly, without the highly-paid Chief Executive's knowledge (and his political masters think that is, er, OK). They have been involved in bent deals, secret and un-minuted meetings and played fast and loose with, inter alia, the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act.

Of course, I am used to them lying to me but it is always interesting to see Britton's staff taking the piss out of other folk. I am sure I will be reporting further in due course on his corrupt staff's FOI reply in respect of the new access system to The Kremlin but, in the meantime, I note they did a number on the Taxpayers's Alliance.

The TA did a nationwide survey to allegedly cash-strapped councils about mayoral cars. This blog has been campaigning for years asking why a dirt-poor sh*thole like Sadders needs two fancy cars AND two chauffeurs! After 44 years of socialist failure bent Labour still run a limo and a fancy Range Rover. And they employ two chauffeurs!!!!

Here are the vehicles outside The Kremlin (and please note the number plates - the right-hand limo is 1HA):

Yet when the TPA contacted corrupt Sandwell they were told that the sleazy socialists only had ONE limo. Jan's bent staff "forgot" about the Range Rover. Under "cost of cars" the answer was, mysteriously, "zero"! No doubt Sadders have a fleet policy for vehicles since they also claim that there are "zero" insurance premiums for these two beauties,

Fuel for the limo is £3.871.39 per annum and maintenance of £6,512.54 (a whopping £542 a month for just one vehicle). Thus Jan's out of control staff claim the Council runs just one limo and it costs a mere £10.383.93. This is a lie.

Once again Jan's bent boys and girls are lying again. Interestingly they told the TPA they had no "personalised number plates" on the vehicles. It is unlikely the two number plates shown in the above picture came with the vehicles as they would command very high values on the market. When did Sadders acquire them and how much did they cost the pisspoor Borough?

Addendum 01/12/18: folk tell me the number plates - or at least 1 HA - were issued by the old Borough's making up Sadders. The 1 HA was for the old Smethwick mayoral car. As below - there is no reason why the valuable plates could not be sold and the money used properly.

Is there are reason why a sh*thole Council needs to own number plates "1 EA" and "1 HA"? What have these got to do with Sadders anyway? Surely the socialists should sell the number plates (as well as at least one of the vehicles) and use the money for frontline services?

Having openly lied about the number plates Jan's staff completely failed to mention the employment of two chauffeurs!

This is where Sandwell Labour are sh*tting on your faces folks!

Of course, Britton provided the limo and a chauffeur plus a SMBC Solicitor (Maria Price) for the late Smethwick Scumbag, Cooper, when he had to attend a police interview for a purely personal matter at Steelhouse Lane nick in Birmingham - using taxpayers money - ie OUR money - for the grotesque charade:

And I caught Cooper using the Range Rover during his ill-fated fantasy that he would become West Midlands Mayor. Britton, of course, had no, er, personal interest in that ludicrous plan and so it is inexplicable why he allowed one of the chauffeurs to ferry Dickhead Daz to a political campaigning meeting in the Range Rover at taxpayers' expense before Cooper's campaign fizzled out when he died during a drink and drugs-fuelled binge:

TPA - like everyone else - Jan Britton's staff have had your pants down!

Bent Lion Farm Deal "Consultation".

Apologies for the brevity of this post but I am just recovering from an operation. Please note that a rushed "consultation" is in progress at short notice as your corrupt Labour Council tries to force this stinking con through!

Bullied Labour Councillor Is Back!

At this time of year the wealthy "leader" of bent Labour Sandwell Council, Steve "Squealing" Eling, squires his charming wife away from her Derbyshire rural idyll to the spicier surroundings of Thailand. I hear he is there now. He usually - and without irony - buys a couple of ties to bring home. Presumably these products of the non-unionised sweatshops of Bangkok are, er, cheaper there.... But this trip he may need to also invest part of his fortune in new underpants because SHE IS BACK! At long last the bullying comrades have reinstated Cllr Yvonne Davies to the Labour Party after an incredibly lengthy suspension on ludicrous "charges".

The trouble for Yvonne started when she had the temerity to stand in the Sadwell leadership election following the death of the Smethwick Scumbag, Darren Cooper, in a drink and drugs-fuelled "session". The election was alleged to have been rigged and Eling "won". He then set about trying to destroy any possible detractors of his tyrannical rule and, as you all know, he and his dumb sidekick, Marshall, recruited me as their mouthpiece and sent me confidential information about Council and Party matters with a view to me causing damage to Eling's enemies. Hard-core Skidderatti will remember Eling and Marshall crowing via the WhatsApp feed that Cllr Davies did not have the sort of money needed to legally challenge the rigged vote and had to back off.

Way back in April, 2017 Yvonne spoke out at a private Labour Group meeting about Cllr Marshall (now, happily, ex-Councillor Marshall) and pointed out to the comrades what he was really up to. Eling blew a fuse (a not uncommon event from the hot-tempered bore) about this attack on his beloved "enforcer" and joined comrades who disgracefully screamed and brayed for Yvonne to be ejected from the meeting - which she duly was.

Of course, the truth about the Sp*nk Brothers' deal with me came out. Marshall was, by now,bankrupt (financially and morally). Eling stuck to him like sh*t to a blanket as he had done when Marshall was exposed for non-payment of council tax and the truth about his horrendous conning of money out of a widow became well-known. But back in April 17 the howling "socialists" preferred to shoot the messenger rather than examine the facts. They believed Eling and Marshall (until this pair were duly exposed).

Step forward the "Chief Whip" John "former socialist Landlord" Edwards. "Jedward" seemingly performs a role akin to that of a common prostitute with Sandwell Leaders. He promises them any number of dubious personal "services" provided they make him Chair of the West Midlands Fire and Rescue Authority - a nice source of much extra loot on top of his allowances.

Yvonne was duly hauled in before the Whips and suspended for, er, telling the truth!

But this bunch of bullies don't do things by halves and weak as piss Cllr Anne Shackleton also put in a complaint to pile the pressure on her Labour "sister". As far as I can make out this was some pathetic nonsense that Yvonne had shouted at her when Shackleton stumbled into a private meeting. But as we have seen with the police investigations against me, these bastards are cowards and hunt in packs.

Why it has taken this long to clear Yvonne is a mystery. This blog has been pushing the shameful "socialists" to make a public apology to Cllr Davies for a very long time. The martinet Edwards has known the truth and what the Sp*nk Brothers had been up to for over a year now! What the f*ck has this moron been doing all that time?

(Incidentally, regulars will know that the self-proclaimed left-winger and Corbynista Jedward was exposed on this blog as being the co-owner of a flat in The Hub, Oldbury. The agents for this "socialist landlord" made it clear that "DSS" claimants need not apply for a Jedward tenancy. It appears that he and his co-owner flogged the property in or around February this year for £106,000 so Landlord no more....but more dosh in the bank!)

Don't get me wrong - Yvonne is as capable of spouting Corbynist claptrap as the rest of them in Sadders but (1) she has a spine and (2) she has a brain and an independence of spirit sadly lacking in most of the Labour Group. Eling is already on the ropes with the Labour Party over Sp*nkgate and much else. Many in the local and national party realise that he is weak and his incompetence is becoming increasingly evident. His out of control outbursts within the Council House and beyond are now showing him up as the vicious bully he is (eg him reporting me to the Police for supporting the Justice 4 the 21 campaign). Yvonne is likely to hold his feet to the flames.... Game On!

You might wonder from the above whether all this is why you have not heard much from Cllr Davies of late but, unfortunately, she has also been poorly. I gather she is on the mend and personally look forward to her being back in fighting form and taking up issues with The Milkman such as the corrupt Lion Farm Fields deal which he is now desperate to force through! Job one Yvonne - get the "option" agreement made public!

Cllr Davies is also building a Twitter presence. There is a lot of nonsense on there but it is still well worth a follow  - go to @nottobeneutral and ignore the leftie b*llocks!

PS - why was the "leader" before Cooper, the thief Bill Thomas, known as "Bangkok Bill" I wonder....

And finally, here is The Squealer in one of his Thai ties with the infamous sentiment he and Marshall shared with me about three Labour Comrades!
