Final Call for the C*cksucker Trial!

Just a quick reminder folks that my trial for the alleged use of a single swear word is at Dudley Magistrates' Court tomorrow - Tuesday 23rd October - at 1.30pm.

If you want to see Sandwell Council's latest attempt to criminalise me and close down this blog - do come along. If the Court allows I have some explosive evidence and, if it does not, some will be disclosed on the steps of the Court after the trial......

I know some of you can't make it due to work etc and thanks for the messages of support. We will be going to The Lamp Tavern when the trial finishes and staying there through the early evening and so do drop in for a noggin if you can!

Whatever happens the anti-corruption in Sandwell Council campaign will continue. Keep the information coming folks! The bent Labour Council are trying to bog me down in legal stuff but after tomorrow I am back "on the case" and the Skidder has a number of projects "in progress"! Incidentally I note that many of you are preferring to write to me now because of concerns about the Police seizure of my phone a few months ago. That is absolutely fine and the address is:

Jules Saunders, 11 Chelworth Road, Birmingham B38 0BG.

And don't forget the Facebook Group folks - see below for details.

Other contact details below as normal. See you all "on the other side....."

Hackett's Data Breach - Part One

I have written at length already on this subject but have now located some new information about this topical matter - topical because the highly controversial Monitoring Officer of bent Labour Sandwell Council, Surjit Tour, wrote yesterday to all Councillors claiming that the increasingly unhinged "leader", Steve "The Milkman" Eling had made a "mistake" when saying he had not been aware of Hackett's data breach because no-one had told him! (More on that in Part Two....)

To gallop through the facts - Hackett was head of the absolutely disastrous Children's Services Department in February, 2016 when, in the course of his duties, he was handed a file relating to the child of a Labour Councillor. We all know that, like North Korea, the state and the party are one and the same thing in Sadders and that a number of councillors consider that the law of the land does not apply to the benighted Borough. It is common ground that Hackett (who had worked for a charity and was Chair of Trustees of the WBA Foundation and so was well aware of safeguarding and data issues) knew that the information was confidential and involved a child. Nevertheless he ran immediately to then Labour Leader [sic] Darren Cooper and spilt the beans to his political boss. It happened that on that day Cooper was holding his regular "political meeting" and so the breach was compounded by the matter being discussed there too. At least one SMBC employee was also present. [Query why a taxpayer-funded employee in Britton's bent paid service is sitting in on "political meetings"?]

It is hard to imagine a more obvious breach by Hackett of his duty of confidentiality and the Data Protection breach! It is said that there was a meeting almost immediately afterwards involving Cooper, Hackett, Jan Britton and another employee (who I think may have been called Chris Ward) and so, if this is true, the paid service were also fixed with notice - by the very fact of the presence of Cooper - that confidentiality etc had been breached.

A Standards Complaint was made against Hackett (one of several including the infamous incident when he urinated in a bus shelter). He was found, in the "final report", to be in breach of the code of conduct in respect of this particular matter. Cooper was now dead but who should come riding to the rescue of The Sandwell Slasher but Milko himself. Eling suddenly remembered that HE had actually also been at Cooper's political meeting months before and put a different slant on things (again, more on this anon). Ring out wild bells - a "final, final report" was produced exonerating Hackett completely! Local newspapers even ran "Hackett is Innocent" stories!

BUT.....Hackett didn't just breach confidentiality with Cooper (and, if you disbelieve Eling's evidence the others at the "political meeting" too) since on the same day he phoned then Chief Whip, Derek Rowley, and told him all about it! Simon may have had his c*ck out in public but you have to wonder whether he was anxious here to cover his arse since he then wrote a backside-shielding email to Rowley a week later. Happily I have it and can share it with you:

"Sent: ‎Wednesday‎, ‎17‎ ‎February‎ ‎2016 ‎10‎:‎35
To: Derek Rowley

Morning Derek

This is to confirm that last Wednesday court papers were presented to me to sign regarding parents who had not xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

I immediately saw that one of the papers I was asked to sign was in relation to Councillor xxxxxxxxxxx. I therefore spoke to the Leader who said I needed to notify the Chief Whip. I therefore rang you last Wednesday.

Please let me know if you need any further information. 

Simon Hackett

Sent from my iPhone"

So there we have it. By his own hand Hackett admits blabbing confidential stuff about a child to both Cooper and Rowley who were not entitled to receive it. He is clearly trying to say that this further breach was down to Cooper but he was Head of Children's Services FFS! Hackett was NOT innocent and a subsequent ICO decision was that there had been a very clear and obvious breach of Data Protection rules. Other party members were not entitled to this information at that time. This is stating the bleeding obvious but the comrades still feel the need to cover this up!

What do you think folks - a "final, final, final" standards investigation and report into this morass of lies? Don't hold your breath!


More Skidder harassment. Another person has complained about me to West Midlands Police and they seek to interview me under caution AGAIN. More anon....

Skidder Shorts #34 - Social Media Abuse

Bent Labour Sandwell Council have been crying foul lately about alleged "social media abuse" (which probably means legitimate criticism and exposure of their lies). I appreciate that Labour have farmed out the "traffic warden" service to a private company (whilst building UP Cllr Steve "Elying" Eling's force of paramilitaries) but, nevertheless, these people still represent the ugly face of the failing "socialist" dictatorship.

I am indebted to a concerned reader who has made formal complaint to Jan Britton and Cllr David Hosell about the social media output of one particular traffic warden resident in Tipton. His Facebook oeuvre includes such gems as these about the public and colleagues:

1   A picture of some women drinking in a Tipton pub - "Rough as a robber's dog."

2   Local people in Tipton described as "uneducated, knuckle-dragging fuck muppets."

3  Our friend asked a new Bulgarian colleague "where in Poland she was from". He continued "she ripped my fucking head off..... her card is now marked. Fucking arrogant rude obnoxious incompetent stain."

(In another post he made a "joke" about Polish people).

4  Two of his work colleagues are described as "miserable fuckers".

Charming, I'm sure!!!!

(Don't forget to come to the "C*cksucker Trial" if you can - Tuesday 23rd October - 1.30pm - Dudley Mags - and afterwards at The Lamp Tavern).

Calling All C*cksuckers!

Just a reminder that my "c*cksucker" trial is just a fortnight away. The attempt to criminalise me for the alleged single use of the word "c*cksucker" is at Dudley Magistrates' Court at 1.30pm prompt on Tuesday 23rd October. The trial is due to last all afternoon so you can drop in at any time if you are finishing work etc (though keep an eye on social media for any developments...).

If you cannot get to Court we will be adjourning to the Lamp Tavern (link below) a short walk away for post-match analysis. Do drop in if you can!

I cannot say much about the case but hope to present some explosive evidence. If I am prevented from mentioning one particular thing in Court I will read it on the steps of the court afterwards to put on YouTube.

Following the police involvement in this matter I wrote to all Sandwell Labour Councillors warning them (or, more accurately, a percentage of them) that I was no longer going to tolerate their abuse of me. Almost immediately an incident occurred. Myself and A.N.Other complained to Oldbury Police. Now in my c*cksucker case Oldbury Police took the decision to prosecute with no reference to the CPS ( I cannot say more on this as it is part of my case). In the case of the alleged offence by a Labour Councillor, however, Oldbury Police have, er, referred the matter to the CPS. More on this soon but one rule for one.....????

Chief Superintendent Richard Baker - Sandwell Police

Over and over again this blog has bemoaned the sickening relationship between corrupt Sandwell Labour and West Midlands Police.

This blog was hearing that Chief Sup't Baker was possibly "one of the good guys" but I now have direct evidence that the beleaguered "Leader" of bent Sandwell, Steve "The Milkman" Eling has been playing Iago to his Othello. Here is an email I have just sent to him which should be self-explanatory:

"Dear Chief Superintendent Baker,


I received some disturbing documentation yesterday. May I say from the outset that you, of course, cannot choose who sends email to you - this one being a case in point.

I am now aware that during the long Complex Crime Unit investigation into me on spurious and false allegations by Sandwell Labour Councillors Eling Marshall and Costigan, that Eling was in direct communication with you via email attempting to blacken my name.

I am particularly concerned with regard to one grossly defamatory email that Eling sent you. It is quite clear that this was not sent to you in an operational capacity connected to the Complex Crime Unit investigation.

In the circumstances I have today put in a subject access request to WMP for all emails passing between you and Eling relating to me and, as above, since at least one had nothing to do with operational matters I expect them to be disclosed.

What I have already seen will lead to a civil claim in defamation (and possibly under the Protection from Harassment Act) against Eling without more. I am not sure what the protocol is but would like to take a formal statement from you regarding what I have seen so far, that it was sent to your email address etc for use in the civil claim. Please can you contact me to make appropriate arrangements?

I am sending a copy of this to Eling's private email address as his defamatory behaviour was not "council business" but purely malicious and political.

I await to hear from you.

Julian Saunders"

Complex Crime Unit

You will all know that I was subjected to the stress of a five month investigation by the WMP Complex Crime Unit who seemingly haven't got anything else to do. Now fresh evidence is coming out from SMBC itself that all that I said about the WhatsApp feed etc was, er, true. Accordingly I have asked the CCU to examine the new evidence with a view to taking action against the liars:

"Dear DS Xxxxxxxx,


The Complex Crime Unit investigated me for five months on totally spurious allegations from three Sandwell Labour Councillors, Eling, Marshall and Costigan. 

As pointed out to you during the investigation Costigan gave a false statement telling deliberate lies about me.

You may not be aware but Sandwell Council held what purported to be a "Standards Hearing" last week involving, inter alia, Eling and Marshall. Lots of new evidence is now in the public domain (albeit incomplete as the allegedly "independent" investigation did not take evidence from me even though I was a key participant and, in certain areas, the ONLY witness!)

Can you please confirm that the Complex Crime Unit will review the new evidence with a view to considering a possible prosecution(s) against any one or more of the complainants in respect of the deliberate provision of false statements to WMP?

I should add that your unit confiscated my phone for some considerable time and had access to the full UNREDACTED WhatsApp feed set up by Eling and Marshall to channel information to me. You therefore have access to some material which is not in the public domain. In particular you will see information about Ms Melanie Dudley which the pair were anxious for me to put in the public domain which was highly damaging and, more to the point. totally false. It must be remembered that Ms Dudley was an employee of the Council at the time.

I am sending Ms Dudley a copy of this email as I understand she made formal complaint to you concerning these matters.

Julian Saunders"


Nearly two thousand of you have already seen the shocking bullying of me yesterday at Sandwell Council House - if you haven't click here:

The very aggressive man (see picture) who hid his ID and refused to identify himself has been named as Stuart "Clacker" Clarke (not to be confused with someone of the same name who I think works in IT). I have made a formal complaint about the aggression etc yesterday to Jan Britton.

If this chap is "Clacker" I am told he got his job through the intervention of xxxxxxxxxx (more anon after my Court case (23rd October 1.30 Dudley Mags and thereafter at the Lamp Tavern, Dudley - all welcome). As ever, info welcome..............

Shocking SMBC Bullying Of Blogger!

I am trying to keep this blog short as it is essential for you to view the videos here - particularly 1, 2 and 3.

I was in Oldbury yesterday. On the way there someone sent me a message that Melanie Dudley had been on the radio about the bullying she was on the receiving end of when Eling decided he wanted her out and he and Marshall asked me to, inter alia, "give her a kicking".

I will write about all this shortly but suffice to say here that the liar Eling is desperately trying to distance himself from all this and blame Marshall. There are various questions the media should ask. A non-exclusive list should include:

  1. Why did Eling want Melanie out?;
  2. If Marshall did not get the confidential information about this and much else from Eling where did he get it from? Who in Jan Britton's bent paid service was telling Marshall this highly-sensitive stuff? If it was NOT Eling (and that is a very big "IF") then it had to be someone very senior....! There must be an properly independent inquiry.
  3. The so-called "independent investigation" into this did not interview me even though I am the key player in the WhatsApp saga. I have only put up a redacted version of the feed via this blog. Folk should be aware that Eling and Marshall were very anxious for me to publish some really bad (and totally UNTRUE) stuff about Melanie, which I fortunately didn't. Local media should be aware that they haven't got all the facts here!)
My informant about the radio stuff said SMBC had given the BBC a press release half-heartedly accepting the shocking bullying by them of Melanie but also pleading that they were somehow the victims in all this because folk were using social media to attack the deeply corrupt Council! Accordingly, when I got to Oldbury I went into the Council House (a public building) and asked at reception if I could get a copy of the press release. The member of staff made a phone call and then told me I had to apply in writing for it to Chief Executive [sic] Jan Britton!!!!!! She offered me a piece of paper but I said I might as well email.

I went back to the linkway and plugged my phone in. I started to write an email to Britton when two of Eling's paramilitaries approached me. They asked me what I was doing and before I could answer asked me to leave! No reason given whatsoever except "we are obeying orders". I managed to film most of this exchange:

I had not completed my email and said I would do so in the main building. I went there and sat down when another gang of the wardens appeared including their very aggressive bearded leader who had no collar number and refused to identify himself. By this time I was sending a second email to Britton - a subject access report in respect of this thuggery! Please look at videos two and three. This is in a public building!

WE as taxpayers are paying for this! 

There is not a lot on video four save that you will see that two of the stormtroopers are on the walkway and I remind our anonymous bearded friend that I am a member of the public and deserve due respect and demanded he stop calling me by my first name.

Clearly with my forthcoming trial (Dudley Mags 23rd October 1.30pm - all welcome) they were trying to wind me up and get me in trouble with the police again. Eling was not on the premises so who ordered this horrendous harassment?

[I am indebted to Rob Mayor of the BBC for simply sending me the press release which Britton would not let me see.]

Incidentally, the following photo does not show this but when Melanie turned up at the Standards "Hearing" about Eling and Marshall last week with her 90 year-old vicar father, Jan Britton or his bent staff thought they were sufficiently dangerous that they had to sit to the side of the chamber under guard from one of Eling's heavies (just out of shot to the left)! As if they didn't bully her enough first time around they had to do it again - publicly!

Come Clean Please Brendon Batson!

When I shivered on the Brummie Road End many moons ago, little did I think that three of my blue and white-striped heroes - yes, "The Three Degrees" - would, one day, be the subject of a ghastly, cartoonish, statue plonked in West Brom's shopping centre. Had I been told the saga of Mr Jim Cadman's involvement in this absurdity I would have condemned it as improbable fiction.....

I have written many blogs on Sunny Jim and his hideous scheme but in summary:

1   Cadman has portrayed himself as some sort of altruistic "fundraiser" - erecting statues of sports and other "celebrities" throughout the land in association with a sculptor called Graham Ibbeson. Make no mistake this pair are in business together and do this to make money.

2   This blog has listed the host of failed companies in which Cadman has been involved. At one point I put up the accounts for Ibbeson's two companies which did not make happy reading either. Cadman has left many creditors nursing losses including HMRC and cash-strapped local councils from Barnet to Blackburn.

Cadman is an oleaginous salesman of the old school. He finds a schtick to promote his statue projects. He always tries to get the deceased's family involved/exploit them (take your pick) to tug at the heartstrings of gullible donors (eg Laurie Cunningham's son in the the case of the "Three Degrees Statue").

Jim knows that football supporters are particularly one-eyed when it comes to their team and particularly credulous when he spins his schemes to promote "their" club (eg Leeds United cold-shouldered his Don Revie Statue scheme but fan pressure forced the Club to actually provide a small site for it outside Elland Road.)

(One who was not so gullible was former Baggies Chairman Jeremy Peace who wanted nothing to do with greaser Jim and refused to have the pathetic statue anywhere near The Hawthorns! Take note Baggies fans...)

Cadman also knows that the world of top-flight football is awash with money and he wants some of it. Further the issue of racism in footie is currently - and quite rightly - "in vogue" with more shed loads of cash available if people "press the right buttons." Thus "whiter-than-white" Jim suddenly became an unlikely champion of black footballers trying to make money from not one but TWO statues - for our own "Three Degrees" and one for the first black footballer, Arthur Wharton, in Rotherham. (By yet another amazing Sandwell coincidence the Labour Leader of deeply corrupt Sandwell Council, Steve "The Milkman" Eling, works for that other Labour basket case, er, Rotherham Council.)

It is incredible to me in this day and age that a person like Cadman can simply ask the general public to give him money for a PRIVATE business project without any formal prospectus, no checks whatsover whether he is telling the truth and complete unaccountability for the monies received. The money is NOT being paid into one of his companies* and there is no trust or other charity administering the donations. Does he pay tax on these receipts? Where is the money held (or is it used in Jim's many other business ventures until it is needed?) How much has he raised and how much has he spent on his grand "dinners" etc? (I was contacted by someone who donated items belonging to a very well-known football figure for a raffle and who was very concerned what had happened to them).

Sunny Jim kicked this all off with a grand event in Birmingham Town Hall no less, hosted by Frank Skinner. A source close to Skinner says he was paid his full - large - fee for this event although his management company has refused to say how much he actually scored. Cadman has promised (for what that is worth) that "profits" from various events would go into the the statue "fund" (whatever that is) but how much did he rake in and how much did he have to pay out (to hire Birmingham Town Hall and The Hawthorns to name but two expensive venues). How did HE calculate these secret "profits"?

Don't get me wrong fellow Baggies fans. If you want to pay a businessman to provide an awful private statue then so what? It's a free country (at least outside the Hermit Kingdom of Sadders!) Do as you please. But even then there must surely be some sort of accountability for how that money is spent?

A short interlude for all real football fans reading this. Sandwell Council are giving the local Warley League a very hard time. Cllr Eling and his supposedly "socialist" cronies (notably Cllr Paul Moore) are also destroying the football pitches and vital open land at Londonderry Fields (check out "Save Londonderry Lane Playing Fields" on Facebook) at a time when child obesity is rampant in the sh*thole Borough and every bit of green space should be cherished and nurtured. Even worse, Moore especially, is hell bent on forcing through a bent deal with a property developer to destroy the  huge 19ha greenfield site at Lion Farm, Oldbury, by M5 J2. The Warley League have 11 grass pitches there and Eling wants to build a shopping centre over them. Local football isn't just about the Baggies. Support real-life grassroots football and green space for kids to play folks instead of nostalgia w*nkfest statues.....!)


So, private money for a private business project if folk are daft enough to want to enrich Cadman is ok BUT....

This blog has shown that bent Sandwell Council (when "money-man" Eling was statutory Deputy Leader) took planning gain monies for new developments (including New Square in West Brom) which were intended to improve local infrastructure for local people and lumped them into a slush fund to spend on anything they fancied and without having to make detailed public disclosure of their self-promoting vanity projects. Thus Eling and Co agreed to donate £30,000 of OUR money secretly to Cadman! I broke this story long ago following a Freedom of Information request.

Please remember that after 44 years of Labour dictatorship in Sandwell the pisspoor Borough is at or near the bottom of every deprivation league table going. Its Children's Services department was so bad a Tory government had to intervene to stop them doing anymore damage to vulnerable kids. In the football world Sandwell would have long since been relegated to non-league status. I suppose £30k is just pocket-money for Brendon Batson but Sandwell people NEED that money and it should be paid back NOW! Still, better for Labour to glorify in a crap statue than try and stop children being raped and

Sandwell Council are unable or unwilling to account for the whereabouts of OUR £30k. I will ask one more time: "where's the f*cking money and the accounts Cadman?"

Eling and other failing Labour councillors also pulled another stunt. Even though the statue is brown bronze and meant to represent three black footballers (though in my opinion the pictures of it seem to portray our handsome heroes as gurning simpletons) they sprayed three black men, er, gold to pretend to be the statue! This apparent racism was paid for from public money looted by Sandwell Labour from an Arts Council grant to the Sandwell Arts Festival!

We all know that the bent Council has a propaganda machine costing us taxpayers over half a million pounds a year and the local equivalent of "Pravda" also doing their bidding ie. "The Express and Star" aka "The Wolvo C*cksuckers". The "Star" have been incessant cheerleaders for this crazed project without once asking how much money Cadman has had off folk nor where he has secretly spent it.

Thus on 28th July the C*cksuckers breathlessly announced that the "final £38,000" for the ugly thing had been found. How was this £38,000 calculated? The statue is said to cost £220,000 (way more, incidentally that many other Cadman statue projects). Where are the invoices to show this? If £38,000 was needed that means Cadman had allegedly raised £220,000 - £38,000 = £182,000. But Sunny Jim has had large expenses eg Frank Skinner, Birmingham Town Hall, hire of The Hawthorns etc PLUS his "cut". So how much as he raised to get the net figure of £182,000? One million? Half a million? Tell us Cadman! (And why wasn't Eling asking to see the accounts before he and his mates agreed to hand over £30k of public money to a private businessman?) If all is above board Jim I give me the details and I will publish them on here for all to see!

According to the C*cksuckers the balance is being made up by The Professional Footballers' Association - itself an organisation not immune from controversy. The PFA is an incredibly rich charity run by Gordon Taylor. Last year its income was a stonking £27 million!!!! (Let's hope some of that eventually gets used to save the Warley League - see above).

BUT despite its wealth and alleged arrogance the PFA is still a registered charity. Is it a valid use of the charity's funds to give money to a private business enterprise run secretively by Cadman without sight of the accounts for what has gone on so far? I duly wrote to the PFA on 26th July, 2018 but they failed to reply:

"Date: Thu, 26 Jul 2018, 12:12
Subject: Three Degrees Statue, West Bromwich
To: <>

It is being reported that you have given a substantial donation to the above.

I write the Sandwell Skidder blog about local matters and have written extensively about the proposed statue. 

Can you please state:

1 The amount of your donation; and
2  Whether you saw Jim Cadman's accounts for this project before you agreed your donation. 


Julian Saunders


The Trustees of the PFA Charity need to step up to the penalty spot here and tell us why their donation is within the terms of the trust deed of the charity and what the financial position of the whole project actually is. Happily, and not mentioned by the C*cksuckers, there is one Trustee who is uniquely positioned to tell us the truth about what has actually gone on with Sunny Jim and this statue over several years. Yes, from the list of the PFA's trustees on the Charities Commission website, step forward Mr Brendon Batson MBE.....!!!!

* The latest accounts for Jim's latest company, Cornerstone Marketing Limited, are in abbreviated form but show net current assets at a tiny £739!


The Chief Executive of bent Sandwell Council, Jan Britton, is STILL deliberately following the Twitter troll account! My account is back up @SandwellSkidder.
