West Brom BID W*nkers LOSE £56K!

Retail businesses have been having a tough time for some years. In forty-six years of the business-hating Labour dictatorship of Sandwell the six towns have become shadows of their former selves. The retail experience is, generally speaking, vile. The night-time economy is positively non-existent in the centres unless you are very brave. Then Councillors (and former ones) like Steve "Squealing" Eling, Bill "Alka Seltzer" Gavan, Paul "The Cipher" Moore and "Red" Yvonne Davies decided to finish-off struggling shops across the Borough by forcing through the bent deal destroying Lion Farm Fields for a brand-new mega complex away from the traditional centres. Indeed the pathetic Moore could not (apparently) see a glaring conflict of interest and (metaphorically) removed his tongue from his then employer Tom Watson's anus to both promote the BID AND the bent Lion Farm deal from the original 2-minute Cabinet meeting to promoting "Knight's Sh*te" - the sexed-up dossier of 2017!

About the only thing you can say that the corrupt "socialist" Council is good for is holding out the begging bowl. It has been adept at securing millions of pounds of funding which has then been sp*nked up the wall or distributed to organisations controlled by comrades and/or cronies. Thus Sandwell Labour were anxious to jump on the Tory idea of "business improvement districts" or "BIDs".

Whilst not exclusively intended for retail areas the idea is that business rate-rate payers in an area can join together and vote to form a BID. If a majority agree then EVERY business ratepayer is forced to pay an additional "levy" on top of the tax many are already struggling to pay. The plan is that the money will be used to improve the local trading environment so that alleged increased trade benefits all traders in the long run. What they lose on the roundabout of extra "tax" they will gain on the swings of increased sales. 

Now Sandwell Labour hate private enterprise and anyone who makes "profit". The likes of Red Yvonne pushed out endless Corbyite claptrap - a man urging the end of capitalism and a socialist paradise. But hang on a mo, the comrades thought. If we set up a BID we can get a Government loan. We can also apply for other loans when yet more millions are periodically thrown at "saving the high street." We can ensure expenditure on nice fluffy things like honking jazz bands, Twitter campaigns and such like. We as a Labour Council can claim the credit for these nice things whilst they are not paid for (directly) by voters. BIDs are deeply undemocratic but as long as we keep "the big boys" on side we can do all this "off the books" and without tossers like "The Skidder" putting in Freedom of Information requests and holding us to account.

Some of you may be scratching your heads here. Surely, the likes of Tesco and Morrisons (who were involved in the bent Wednesbury scheme - see further below) spend zillions on marketing and employ plenty of experts to drive business through their doors. And older readers will recall that many High Streets and the like always had informal traders' associations to have the odd carnival or other promotional events without the hoopla of extra tax, bureaucracy and compulsion. Bur Sandwell being, er, Sadwell this was NOT a scheme brought forward by the traders themselves. The scheme to force them to pay extra tax was officially promoted by Labour Sandwell Council! These tosspots were suddenly experts on retail marketing - perhaps after their success with the taxpayers' money they blew on the homoerotic invitation in New Square which they justified, incredibly, as being a major "tourist attraction" for the sh*thole town:

Now the plot thickens! In February and March 2015 Sandwell Council ran the ballot. They said their proposal won! Now we have seen, thanks to community activist Darryl Magher, that the Wednesbury ballot was bent and turned out to be unlawful. It was quashed despite massive hype from the likes of ghastly people like Cllrs Inane Elaine Costigan and Peter "Zorro" Hughes:

http://thesandwellskidder.blogspot.com/2018/08/wednesburys-second-chance-to-fck-itself.html

As with Wednesbury the BID was supported by corrupt West Midlands Police. You might wonder what the bent blues know about retail marketing - although they are rumoured to have monetised the dealing of Class A drugs, money laundering and prostitution in Sadders - but as business ratepayers they incredibly get a vote. And so a publicly funded and deeply corrupt organisation is able to "partner" with their dodgy mates at SMBC and help impose extra taxation on hard-pressed local traders! And the West Bromwich BID area was, as in Wednesbury, deliberately rigged to include those well-known retail emporia, the cop shop and the leisure centre:

In August, 2015 a CIC was formed - West Bromwich Town BID CIC. A CIC is a non-profit company set up to benefit the community or for a social purpose. Fat chance of that in Labour Sandwell! Three of the first directors were Sandwell's former Director of Regeneration Nick Bubalo (who has still not been interviewed by WMP under caution - see posts passim ad nauseum), a senior copper Matthew Morgan (high income & gold-plated pension) and the ludicrous Anthony Paul Thomas James (I sh*t ye not) Moore.

As with the scam in Wednesbury, Mr Magher could smell rodent and asked, inter alia, for a list of all those who had voted for the BID which was refused by Jan Britton's bent paid service on the basis that these important documents had been destroyed OR handed to the CIC! As above, the CIC is not subject to Freedom of Information and so Moore and the cops could conceal the facts! How good is that?

No doubt WMP and BID members will now insist the CIC fully disclose the facts...

In the meantime, West Brom BID blocked me from commenting on their activities via social media. Something to hide?

Many of the BIDs around the country employ a couple of minions to tramp the streets (informing on locals to the cops) but are otherwise vehicles to employ the bourgeoisie in nice comfy jobs. Of course, as soon as the money comes rolling in it flows straight out again. The BID originally shared office space with SMBC's market manager but this was clearly not good enough for middle class folk and so they have blown some of the loot and rented their own smart offices:

These are considerably smarter premises than those of many businesses in West Brom being forced to pay the "levy" to them! And clearly not everyone was happy about forking out for this bullsh*t since, by the time of Darryl Magher's enquiry, £10,533.74 of the additinal tax was unpaid and the recalcitrants referred to "collecion agencies".

So how much does it cost to buy a few balloons and have the odd event? Not much one might think. Someone - presumably the Government of the Council - has lent it £90,000 which remains unpaid. And despite raking in A QUARTER OF A MILLION POUNDS a year these jokers managed to LOSE £56,583!!!!! Some of the current Directors are managers of the shopping centres but I wrote to the allegedly "independent" directors asking how this bizarre situation could have arisen and questioning certain items eg why Labour Sandwell Council are failing so badly with street cleaning that people already pay business rates for, the BID has to pay so much extra for this! Here is my letter:

To:                                                                                                                    2nd August, 2020


Ms R A Jenkins, ℅ West Bromwich Town BID,  4 St Michaels Court, Victoria Street, West Bromwich B70 8ET (via email.)


Mr James Mattin, Bond Wolfe, West Plaza, 8th Floor, 144 High Street, West Bromwich B70 5JJ (via email.)


Mr Paul Ramsey, McDonalds, 244-246 High Street, West Bromwich B70 7QG


Churh Singh, ℅ West Bromwich Town BID, 4 St Michaels Court, Victoria Street, West Bromwich B70 8ET (via email.)


Dear All,


Re: West Bromwich Town BID CIC Accounts


THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION


I am writing to you as the four supposedly “independent” directors of the BID company. You know who I am as you have taken steps to try to silence me.


As at least three of you are serious “business people” can you please comment on the BID’s latest accounts which make shocking reading - particularly for a CIC, a Company that is supposed to be working in the community interest. I am writing a piece on this for Sandwell Skidder readers and would like to give you the opportunity to individually comment on the state of the accounts dated 30th June, 2019.


Despite the fact that the BID has screwed local businesses for over a quarter of a million pounds via the BID levy you have contrived to make a LOSS of £56,583. How and why has this extraordinary situation arisen?


I note that you moved from sharing SMBC offices to your own premises with all the costs associated with that. Curiously HM Land Registry do not have a property title for your address. To whom do you pay rent please? Is it St Michaels Court (West Bromwich) Limited?


In the accounts you show staff costs but then account for a single extra lump sum figure for the so-called “Ambassadors”. Why?


Even though you blew £22,265 in the y/e 30th June, 2018 on “signage” you spent another £22,000 on this in y/e 2019? Why?


As above, you are experienced business people and so why did you need to spend £10,200 on “consultancy”. Who were the consultants you felt the need to advise you and on what subject?


Your members are entitled to street cleaning via their normal business rates via SMBC and yet

you blew an astonishing £28,055 on this? Why? Who received this largesse? Have you advised members to seek rebates on their normal business rates from SMBC if the job they are legally obliged to do has fallen short?


Even though you have a large income via the levy you have borrowed the sum of £90,000! I sincerely hope the lender was not SMBC but please confirm the identity of the lender and why you needed a loan in the first place?


It would be helpful if, when replying, you could let me have photographs of yourselves for the forthcoming article. 


Finally, the addresses given to Companies House for Ms Jenkins and Mr Singh appear to be out of date.


The BID have responded without making any attempt whatsoever to answer the above points but did send me a copy of their "business plan" lol!


Covid is ravaging what is left of retail in Sandwell and the tossers who run small businesses and voted to pay extra to this shower must be well pleased! (If you are one of them please get in touch. The same goes for those that didn't want to join in the first place!)


And right on cue today the BID advertised one of the businesses in this crap scheme, Trespass in Astle Park, er, closing down. That's less money for the bent Council and the BID! It's grim up West Brom!

Labour Sh*t on Sandwell Again!

I keep saying it but Sandwell folk deserve to be taken for c****. They are too thick or indifferent to care what happens in their sh*thole surroundings and so Labour continue to rub their faces in excrement at every opportunity. One day they will get off their knees and raise their faeces-smeared, er, faces towards a brighter future. But until then...

When Cllr "Red" Yvonne Davies became Leader for a brief period she mouthed the usual platitudes about sorting out the fraud, cronyism, incompetence and corruption of the Cooper/Eling/Britton era. She glibly trotted out the usual guff about "greater transparency" and so on. To her credit she did fish the huge floater that was Jan Britton out off the cesspit and send him on his way (without a pay-off) although that pathetic rimmer was unable to resist a small gloat when she herself was shafted...



(It is widely believed that Red Yvonne was referring to Britton in particular in respect of at least one of the most lurid allegations in her political suicide note!)

You might think that after getting rid of this disasterous rimmer the comrades would have taken care in appointing his successor. But it was immediately said that Red Yvonne had a close working relationship with David Stevens and he was instantly appointed as "Interim Chief Executive".

Although he has shafted me good and proper in respect of a certain matter I don't have anything "bad" to say about Stevens (yet.) He has been on the periphery of a number of stories but is teflon-coated at present. The only real blot on his copybook so far has been his inexplicable and concerning refusal to say whether he was ever in a business relationship with Stuart Lackenby (posts passim.)

BUT who would become the Parkie's replacement on a permanent basis? The Wolvo Express and Star (wink) assured us on 13th July, 2019 that "the Council's political leadership [sic] [is] keen to ensure the right candidate is recruited to take the role over the long term." NOTE the date - July, 2019. And the Star is always right lol!

We have seen the difficulty Sandwell have in recruiting talent and they have even had to re-appoint retreads to make up the numbers like Surjit Tour (the most dangerous man in Sandwell Council whom Red Yvonne foolishly refused to sack) and "Dr" Alison Knight (who was heavily involved in a major Sandwell Labour disaster first-time round but was given another go!!!!) This blog has pointed out many times that surely no-one of high calibre would want to work "under" Jan Britton and risk the reputational damage that was likely to ensue? But with the grovelling greaser gone maybe someone fancied the job and the £148k pay package?

And so any normal public authority would have started a recruitment process to at least test the market and see if there was a better candidate than Stevens. And. after all, there were questions to be asked of Stevens how HE too let down the people of Sandwell by failing to notice and or call-out what was going on in the Britton era (to be absolutely fair - as I always am - he did tell me to my face that there were things he was involved with he was "not particularly proud of." 

So did the dysfunctional Labour morons advertise the post nationally or employ headhunters? Er, no!

Now here's a funny thing. In the Council Chamber in Oldbury is this board:


This is an old photo and I am not able, due to Covid, to get in to take a new one. Remember that Jan the Man was flushed out in July, 2019 yet a few months afterwards I noticed that David Stevens's name had appeared even though he was allegedly still only "interim" leader. Via a Freedom of Information (FOI) request bent Labour have now confirmed that they paid to have the board changed in August, 2019 ie BEFORE Stevens got the top job! This looks very much like Red Yvonne p*ssing all over our faces eh readers?

(I should add here that I have been campaigning to have Britton's name taken off this board as it is an affront to the people of Sandwell that it should remain there.)

So how did the recruitment process go? Red Yvonne and Labour refused to look at outside contenders. The post was only advertised INTERNALLY to 4 people! And wait for it, wait for it - the FOI states the process was only open from 20th December, to 31st December, 2019 ie almost exactly contemporaneously with the Council being shut down for Christmas! How can this even be allowed to happen and when is SOMEONE going to sort these bent f*ckers out?

There was only one applicant ie the white male whose name had been painted up in the Council chamber since August. So much for unions (again) in Sandwell and equality legislation! 

On 10th January, 2020 there was a meeting to confirm the appointment chaired by Red Yvonne but attended by Cllrs Ali, Crompton and Underhill. The "Interim Director of HR", Sue Stanhope, prepared the Report for the meeting. This "professional" said that expressions of interest were sought from "the four substantive Executive Directors". This joker makes no reference to any external search for candidates whatsover and the FOI confirms none was even attempted.

Incidentally, the "four heads" include the hapless Knight and also Darren Carter who has since been suspended but who we know should be sacked outright for his conduct in regard to the suspension of the secretaries - posts passim!)

Yet Red Yvonne had this massive lie minuted - and, presumably, agreed by Ali, Crompton (the new Leader) and Underhill:

"Following a competitive recruitment process that was open to all those directly impacted , one expression of interest was received and the applicant met the criteria on the person specification."

I think we need an explanation from those three Councillors don't you readers?

When are the Tory MP's going to get some action going about this shower?

And once again Sandwell - you get exactly what you deserve from Labour!

BREAKING NEWS - "Councillor X Named!"

The Information Rights Tribunal has finally rescinded an order banning me from naming "Councillor X" before a case to be heard by video link on 15th and 16th September, 2020 together with one on the proposed (bent) Lion Farm development.

The "Councillor X" case relates to allegations that the former "leader" of corrupt Labour Sandwell Council, Steve "Squealing" Eling, Tom Watson MP and others interfered with investigations into the conduct of "X". Incredibly, I have been writing about these matters since 2016 (!!!!) but four YEARS later the cover-up continues. Alas, because of the forthcoming hearing I cannot say too much about this at present but anyone who searches back through this blog will find plenty on the subject. This affair also relates to the effective "dismissal" of former Assistant Chief Executive Melanie Dudley by The Squealer and Jan Britton at colossal cost to the taxpayer.

Councillor X has cost Sandwell HUGE sums in respect of this affair. Firstly, the cost of the initial investigation. Secondly the huge costs of getting rid of Melanie when she stood up to the tyrranical Eling. Thirdly, the legal costs of contesting this Tribunal case (including the use of expensive London counsel). Fourthly, the costs of a re-opened investigation at Sandwell into this affair. 

It is the desire by Eling, "X" and others to stop the latest enquiry that is one of the reasons Leader "Red" Yvonne Davies was recently forced out. More on this anon.

Many of you will guess who the pathetic snivelling sh*t "X" is but, drum roll please..., I can confirm it is Simon "The Sandwell Slasher" Hackett. It says a lot for "information rights" in this country that I have been prevented from naming him for many months. Anyway, more on Hackett too after the hearing....


Blocked By McNally?

In my post:


I wrote about the publicity-seeking chartered psychologist who is Sandwell Labour's "Director of Public Health" and questioned whether Lisa "Me, Me, Me" McNally might spend less time publicising herself and more on the Covid crisis. Since then she has gone into overdrive and has been plastered (unquestioningly) across the mainstream media. She has consistently criticised the Governemnt and has now hit the headlines claiming that the Tories are so useless that Sandwell Labour are setting-up their own "track and trace" system (nothwithstanding that Labour have a 46-year history of monumental incompetence and couldn't organise a p*ss-up in a brewery.)

After my article appeared Super Mc blocked me on Twitter. But this sensitive soul has also started blocking anyone who follows me too. Thus lots of Twitter users have been posting that they have never had any contact with her whatsoever but have now been blocked by her! And so if you too want to join the "Blocked by Super Mc Club" please follow MY twitter account "lol" @SandwellSkidder!

Meanwhile, under Super Mc's boastful stewardship, Sadders has become a major Covid hotspot...

Bad News For "No DSS" Landlords Like Jedders!

Left-wing "Sadwell" Labour firebrand "lol" John "Jedward" Edwards was exposed via this blog for topping up his wealth with a share in a rented flat in Oldbury whilst castigating the "greed" of landlords. The gobby "socialist" specified "no DSS tenants" since he wanted a steady cashflow - as mosts rentiers do. Happily he sold the place before a recent court case supported by housing charity Shelter, which ruled such arrangements, er, discriminatory. 

To paraphrase Dick Emery (who he? - says anyone under 60):

Ohh Jedders - you were unlawful! But we still don't like you!



Labour Limo Madness

After 46 years of Labour dictatorship, Sandwell may be a sh*thole but at least it still likes to "cut the big" with TWO chauffeur-driven limos. Last year a Cabinet member excitedly told me that the limos were on the way out. Another cabinet member, Jackie "Who Are You?" Taylor "lol" posed in front of Oldbury Council House aka "the Heart of Darkness" boasting that electric cars were coming in and peddled the usual Labour b*llocks that the comrades were going to somehow "save money" with new transport arrangements.

But take a look at this from last winter (remember that) when the limo arrived at a full Council meeting without actually bringing the Mayor or anyone else! As folks say about the disastrous spendthrift Labour comrades, "what the f*ck?"

Karahigate Latest!

Before I start may I take this opportunity to say that this blog has hit ONE AND THREE QUARTER MILLION views! Despite the attempts of the Labour Party, West Midlands Police, The GMB Union, sections of the mainstream media, assorted trolls and many others to silence me and my small, but perfectly-formed, team we fight on comrades! Thanks to the team, to all readers old and new, to all the brave people who have supplied information and to all those who have supported the work The Skidder team does. Next target - two million!

F*ck You, Birmingham and Sandwell!

This post picks up on something I wrote the other day and shows how things "work" in Sadders! On 15th July, 2020 - thanks to information from outraged members of the Muslim "community" - I wrote about the event held at the Karahi King Village restaurant in Birmingham on the evening of Sunday 12th July. A number of persons who identify as "BAME" councillors flouted the Covid rules to gather for a meeting at the restaurant. At that time, I was unable to display photos on the blog as copyright was claimed for those in the public domain. The photos showed that there were councillors and others who travelled from different parts of the country to the pre-organised shindig including three of those from bent Labour Sandwell - Cllrs Bostan, Zahir Hussain and Rouf. If you want to plough through the original post click on this link:

http://thesandwellskidder.blogspot.com/2020/07/bame-councillors-flout-covid-rules.html

On 15th July, 2020 I wrote to the three errant Sadders councillors sending them a link to the blog posts and asking, "Will you be offering an apology to the people of Sandwell in respect of your conduct?" As we shall see, Cllr Bostan, replied but no apology was forthcoming from Labour drones Zahir or Mo. How pathetic!

When these councillors are together they are usually accompanied by a non-yapping lapdog, Cllr Zahoor Ahmed, but I couldn't see "Mr Cellophane" on the original photos. It now transpires that he too was there.

On new photos I received I thought I could also see yet another of "Sandwell's community leaders", Cllr Mushtaq Hussain. On 20th July, 2020 I wrote to him asking him to confirm that he was also present but he has not had the good manners to reply. BUT YES, HE TOO WAS PRESENT!

FOUR of the Infamous Five live in Smethwick - a Covid hotspot...

The Wolvo Express and Star (wink) picked up the story and Jamie Brassington wrote it up. The full link is here:

https://www.expressandstar.com/news/health/coronavirus-covid19/2020/07/25/sandwell-councillors-apologise-for-breaching-covid-rules-after-appearing-on-group-photo/

If you don't want to read it now, Jamie put up a photo of BAME councillors standing outside the restaurant ignoring social distancing rules. Having been well and truly caught out the Sandwell bunch suddenly felt able to offer an apology after all! Meanwhile some pathetic masturbators took to Twitter to attack me and The Star saying that the councillors were being unfairly attacked for attending "a charity event."

The Infamous Five told The Star:

“We attended an event on Sunday, July 12, organised by the voluntary group OPWC to discuss urgent community issues in our personal capacities as members of the local Pakistani community."

The "OPWC" is the "Overseas Pakistani Welfare Council" which is NOT a charity. It is a "community organisation". 

What of the "urgent community issues" discussed? This is true insofar as this lot can influence events in Kashmir since members of the Muslim community in Sandwell informed me before the meeting that it was specifically organised to discuss the grave situation there by another "community organisation", The "Pakistani Kashmiri Councillors Forum" (PKCF) - a body specifically set up for COUNCILLORS (who seemingly like bridge rolls):



Now the situation in Kashmir is undoubtedly an important issue. But so is complying with the Covid rules! And this "urgent" meeting on Kashmir was not some sort of spontaneous event but a pre-arranged meeting advertised by, er, the OPWC and PWFC, who proudly displayed their logos on the invitation which the Skidder now has:


If you are wondering why the address is blocked out this is because the invitation originally showed a different venue. "Abid Hussain" is inviting people from far and wide seemingly with flagrant contempt for the Covid Rules.

The 5 Sandwell Councillors are anxious to say that they attended "in a personal capacity" to avoid standards complaints being made to twisted Sandwell Council but the invitation is specifically to "councillors"!

You will see these jokers in the above photo outside the restaurant and the Infamous Five alleged to The Star that this was only part of the event and that "for the most part social distancing was observed" which flies in the face of the many copyrighted photos on the internet. Cllr Bostan - who is widely photographed addressing the meeting - did have the good grace to reply to me and claimed that as far as he was aware social distancing WAS complied with. Ahmad (hopefully a rising star in the Sandwell firmament) is blind and says he apologies IF social distancing was not adhered to "unbeknown to me at the time because of my visual impairment." He claims that he was simply unaware of the others packed into the restaurant all around him. Happily they were close enough to hear him when he spoke.

What of the restaurant owner? Most of the photos show no food being served but food was served later and at least one picture confirms this. You might think that a restauranteur who has flagrantly flouted vitally important public health rules would keep his head down but this t*sspot actually boasted about it and put a photo on Facebook himself!!! And so I am able to show you at least one of the pics from INSIDE the restaurant where you can see around 19 persons packed into a confined space (and other photos show more folk closely packed around this group. Cllr Bostan - apparently unaware of the presence of others - is seen side-on with the claret-coloured tie, bottom left.)


The owner has now been "spoken to" by an Environmental Health Officer of Birmingham City Council for what that is worth.....

The matter has also been reported to corrupt West Midlands Police who have not seen fit to even acknowledge the complaint. This is hardly surprising noting that Dave Thompson's bent blues have form for protecting Sandwell Labour and that at least one VERY senior officer pulled the plug on any investigation into the fraud involving the sale by Labour of the land at Florence Road where the 7 bedroom house occupied by the aforementioned Cllr Rouf now stands.

Interestingly, one person who took to Twitter to lambast the Express and Star was one Mohammad Shauib:



Now one "Mohammad Shauib" features heavily in this blog (posts passim and see legal notice below) as a son of, er, Cllr Mo Rouf! His name kept cropping up in respect of property connected to Rouf and also in the Florence Road plot sale! I asked "Shabba" last night if he is Rouf's son but he declined to reply. (Answers on a postcard please.)

Of course, another Sandwell Labour Councillor who purports to be a "leader" of the local Muslim community is "Condom Man" "Billa" aka Cllr Mohammed Yaseen Hussain. This joke  - who claims to be wealthy and, er, unemployed - decided he could flout Covid lockdown rules as he suddenly and mysteriously became a "key worker". For whom? We have seen that the "Tipton Green Tosser" was, for example, cadging PPE from a nursing home and then photographing himself heroically donating it to Sandwell Hospital (who stated in writing that they didn't need it at that time as they had more than adequate stocks some of which they were distributing to, er, local nursing homes!) Billa, who is usually seen sweating profusely and sniffing heavily, has claimed to The Skidder and others on at least two occasions that he has a "heart problem" and so his bravery in running around Sandwell taking selfies is not to be, er, sneezed at...

To give him his due, Billa is seemingly a very good actor since, like many of his Labour Comrades at the failing Council, he projects the persona of one who is as thick as sh*t. The reality is obviously different since he has been commissioned by Liam Byrne to write a report on the effect of Covid on the BAME community!!!!!

Some of you are scratching your head thinking "Liam Byrne? Why do I know that name?" His is of course, Labour's answer to Chris Grayling. In another monumental error of judgement Byrne left an infamous note when Labour trashed the UK economy and was kicked out of power in 2010. He had been Chief Secretary of the Treasury and left his successor a message "there's no money left"!

What use a "report" from Billa mid-way through an ongoing pandemic is likely to be we shall see but why on earth has Byrne picked this moron? At least Condom Man can "interview" himself and the Infamous Five on why BAME Councillors flout the rules, I suppose!

Incredibly Byrne is the Labour Candidate for West Midlands "Mare" in 2021. Now that IS a joke!

And remember folks, if anyone of the above start lecturing you on the Covid rules in general and their effect on BAME folk in particular, tell them to go and f*ck themselves!

Zorro's Barmy Army

It is ironic that these jokers can attend meetings on Kashmir but not actually attend public meetings of bent Sandwell Council as these are still banned. But the "Microsoft Teams" era has brought us at least one bit of light relief!

No meeting of Sandwell Council is complete without the absurd posturing of Cllr "lol" Peter "Zorro" Hughes aka "Alberich". I have put an example of the Wednesbury Windbag's oeuvre on YouTube for posterity under the title "Death By Zorro!" I did wonder at the time whether Cllr Carmichael was ACTUALLY going to expire with boredom in this exchange with the intensely up-herself Shakkers. It's nearly five minutes long - apologies for poor sound quality so don the headphones -  and only watch it if you want to be sick over yourself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyIVnaONyjc&t=10s

As we all know some truly hateful people in Sandwell Labour Group are trying to destroy any shred of credibility Labour has left in the rotten Borough and the rebel contingent have brought down Cllr "Red" Yvonne Davies with the help of London-based John Spellar MP [sic] and tyro NEC member, Gurinder Josan. Now they are out to destroy the temporary Leader, Maria Crompton.

During a recent meeting though, the hapless Alberich accidentally left an ongoing derogatory commentary from the plotters on screen for all to see:


Some of the usual suspects appear and I suppose the only surprise is that this blogs recent comments on Liam Preece being a pathetic groveller have borne fruit so quickly!

AND FINALLY - SOME HAPPY NEWS!

As above, Chief Constable Dave Thompson's bent blues helped to cover-up fraud at the Labour Council. His staff only conducted four interviews under caution and only one for any length of time. Whilst making no imputation of fraud against the following individuals they were certainly key witnesses whose behaviour did not appear to be up to the standard of normally competent local government officials, let alone very senior ones. Their defence appears to be that they were simply "unaware" of the fraud going on directly under their noses and which, in many cases, they were "signing-off" on. Thus this blog has campaigned - and continues to campaign - for, at least, Jan Britton, Neeraj Sharma, Nick Bubalo and Adrian Scarrott to be formally interviewed by the police under caution.

I speculated at the time whether the reticence of the bent blues to interview Scarrott had anything to do with his "relationship" with a serving senior police officer whom the Sp*nk Brothers, Cllrs Eling and Marshall, identified in the infamous Whats App feed as "a blonde police inspector".

Happily, the couple have now gone public with pics of WMP Inspector Keeley Bevington and Adrian enjoying the romantic environs of Venice. I am sure there are many readers who wish them well and salute Scarrott's good fortune following adversity.

But soft - what's this! Readers will know that questions still remain unanswered about the Compulsory Purchase Order on West Bromwich Street, Oldbury, many moons ago when Cllr Bawa and another appeared to do rather well out of the arrangement (and this blog has revealed an investigation into Bawa's OBE given his lack of candour in respect of all this.) By coincidence a huge new housing development came before the planning committee this month for that very street. Now these sh*tbag "socialists" on the bent Labour Council are always going on about nasty property developers and the need for "affordable homes" and so you would imagine that when a plan is submitted for an old foundry site close to the centre of Oldbury for 152 homes then at least some of them will be affordable. I haven't seen the result of the planning meeting yet but the developers employed an expert to attend and argue against the imposition of a quota for affordable houses on the basis of the cost of remediating the former industrial site. And who was this guy coining it on behalf of the developers - yes folks, our very own NICK BUBALO - recipient of a large pay-off of taxpayers' money due to his ill-health - and despite the Wragge Report and his overlordship of most of the bent deals listed in this blog. Now he is obviously recovered and back in business. Isn't that terrific?

You really couldn't make it up in this sh*thole Borough!

BAME Councillors Flout Covid Rules!

BAME folk do seem to have been disproportionately affected by The Great Plague and so one imagines that those who purport to be "community leaders", er, provide community leadership. Alas, some of them are flagrantly breaching "the rules".

This blog has recorded the recent shocking Covid anctics of "Condom Man" - Cllr M. Y. Hussain (aka "Billa") of our very own bent Labour Sandwell Council:

http://thesandwellskidder.blogspot.com/2020/05/cllr-m-y-hussain-tipton-green-tosser.html?m=0

(Incidentally, Billa's poor behaviour has been PRAISED by Labour's West Mids Mayor wannabe, Liam Byrne - he of **that** infamous Treasury note. Read The Skidder, Liam!)

Last Sunday "Midlands Pakistani Kashmiri Councillors" were invited to a meeting at a Birmingham restaurant, the Karahi King Village on Warwick Road, although some guests travelled from further afield. Alas I cannot show you the photos as copyright has been claimed but, if they don't swiftly disappear, you can see them on Facebook at either "World News TV" or at "S M Irfan Tahir". (I have screenshots natch.) Suffice to say that a number of folk are packed into a small section of the restaurant with no attempt whatsoever at "social distancing".

The gents sitting cheek by jowl in a confined indoor space included such luminaries as the outgoing Mayor of Worcester, Cllr Allah Ditta (actually a Tory) and long-distance guest, the Tory Mayor of High Wycombe, Mazammil Hussain. This latter joker - who didn't "zoom" up the M40 [groan] - was quoted in the Bucks Free Press as saying, "the vast majority [of residents of High Wycombe] have listened to the instructions and [are] following the guidelines which is great..." He added, "I hope everyone stays safe and listens to the guidelines, and hopefully we can pull through this tough time together." One rule for one.....

Others in attendance (who may or may not be councillors) were Abid Hussain, Khadam Hussain, Ch Ishtiaq Lehri, Hadiz Wajid, Raja Ishtiaq, Mohammed Ishtiaq, Mujahid Hussain (said to be the restaurant owner), Dr Saboor Javed (hopefully not a medic), Cllr Asim Rashid "and others". As above, photos show them packed into a confined space.

AND AT LEAST THREE SERVING LABOUR COUNCILLORS FROM BENT SANDWELL WERE PRESENT AND BREAKING SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES!

Photographs show Cllr Ahmad Bostan (a blind Councillor who may occasionally require close assistance), Cllr Zahir Hussain and our old pal, Cllr Mohammad Rouf.

It was not long ago that (thankfully) the NHS performed brilliantly to help Cllr Hussain's own family and one might think that he would be keen to promote good practice to avoid extra burden on the sainted organisation.  Cllr Rouf notoriously "volunteers" to work long unpaid hours at the NHS- approved Midnight Pharmacy at Cape Hill. Yet this trio were prepared to flout the rules and advertise the fact on social media!

[It is not clear whether there was a cartoon version of the meeting's theme so that Cllr Rouf could follow what was going on....]

Cllr Bostan has been a vocal critic of Dominic Cummings. He has tweeted about obeying the covid guidleines and himself raised the issue of the effect of the disease on BAME people. In typical Labour Sandwell style he pleaded with people to "please ensure social distancing" whilst shafting us all (metaphorically) up the derriere.

I THINK IT IS ONLY FAIR THAT ALL COUNCILLORS ATTENDING THIS SHINDIG ISSUE A PUBLIC APOLOGY DON'T YOU READERS?



Whilst on the subject of Cllr Rouf, I came across this document again the other day. Regular readers will know that this blog exposed the bent deal (not involving Cllr Rouf....) involving the land where his 7-bedroom home now stands in Florence Road, Smethwick (posts passim as nauseum.) The late wife-beater and pal of Jess Phillips MP, Darren Cooper (then "leader" of the corrupt Council pictured above with Mo), was behind the deal but after his death in a booze'n'drugs binge the Elingites tried to shift the blame onto an enemy of the new tyrranical Leader [sic], Steve "Squealing" Eling. I think this document makes it crystal clear who made the running here don't you readers? (PS the recipient is one of Rouf's sons....)


AND FINALLY - BEST QUOTES OF LAST WEEK:

From "Labour sources":

1.   "I couldn't believe it when Cooper became Leader. He had a brain the size of a peanut!"

2    (About a current male councillor): "His big problem is he can't keep his cock in his trousers - he's always been like that."

Major News - Red Yvonne Suspended!

The civil war at bent Labour Sandwell Council claimed a major scalp last night. The Labour Leader of the Council, Yvonne Davies, has been suspended by the Party apparently due to her crazed output on social media. Ever since she became Leader a large section of the Sandwell Group have worked to bring her down - cheered on from the sidelines by former disgraced Leader [sic] Steve "Squealing" Eling, himself suspended by the Party (posts passim ad nauseum.)


It has to be said that some members of the senior management team at the bent Council have also been very anxious to see her go.

The original plan, had Covid not reared its ugly head, was that the rebels would try and dethrone Red Yvonne after the May elections but, of course, they didn't take place. Cllr Davies has spent vast amounts of public money re-visiting the hopeless "Wragge Report" but the Skidder is told that the bent paid service has been dragging its feet in the hope that she would be kicked out and this could all be buried again - at enormous cost to us taxpayers.

Further, a number of standards investigations are under way and leading rebels are said to be hoping that charges against them will be dropped following regime change. There are said to be ongoing enquiries against, at least, Paul Moore, Simon Hackett and M Y "Billa" Hussain.

Eling has always had the snivelling London-based "MP" for Warley, John Spellar onside. (It is hard to imagine Spellar actually having friends but it is said that he close to Labour national Leader, Sir Woodenarse - Keir Starmer.) We saw recently in this blog that Spellar's (and Tom Watson's) puppet Gurinder Josan was recently elected to Labour's NEC with a top priority to exonerate the hate-filled Eling. As we saw in this blog, Spellar, Watson and Josan conspired to destroy Mahboob Hussain after Eling fell out with him.


The rebels are an odd-bunch even by Sandwell Labour Standards. Lead by the right-wingers, Spellar, Watson, Josan, Hackett, Moore, Gavan ("lol"), Preece & Co they attracted support from bitter trouble makers like Inane Elaine Costigan, Peter "Zorro" Hughes (aka Alberich) and North Sandwell's hapless "Royal Family", the Giles's. This ghastly galere were cheered on by those money-loving "hard-left" poseurs, Bob "Seig Heil" Piper and John "NO DSS Landlord" Edwards (aka Jedward.) As above they had to move quickly in an attempt to stop the ongoing investigations.

It was obvious that the coup was on when the Wolverhampton c*ck-suckers, aka The Express and Star, did two pieces on behalf of their rebel pals in the last few days. A former journalist and mouthpiece of Tipper, Mick Davies and Bob Piper (amongst others) also suddenly reappeared on social media predicting Red Yvonne's downfall and publishing a story which has been very strongly denied.

In my working life (now brought to a conclusion by the GMB Union) I had dealings with a number of murderers, double-murderers, one triple-murderer and other scum including a notorious serial rapist. Leaving them aside, at least four Sandwell figures feature in my "top-ten" list of the vilest people I have ever met - Cooper, Eling, Costigan and Paul "The Cipher" Moore.

Moore is as pleasant as a bout of diarrhoea. It is hard to imagine but he is even weaker and more craven than Hackett! He likes to hang out with the boys and hope that rimming Tom Watson and his ilk will somehow burnish his non-existent reputation. The most hilarious thing of all is that in the early days of this blog he tried to play the hardman but this cowardly greaser won't even walk into Oldbury Council House through the normal entrance before meetings in case the tiny but hardy bunch of newshounds who wait outside ask him a question!

As above, Moore himself is apparently under investigation (I have written to him about this but he has failed to respond.) But it is this feeble character who, according to the Wolvo C*suckers, wielded the knife:

https://www.expressandstar.com/news/politics/2020/07/06/council-leader-urged-to-apologise-over-anti-semitic-tweets/

It is fair to say that Red Yvonne has not helped her own cause. This blog nicknamed her "Red Yvonne" because of her endless stream of pro-Corbyn and other left-wing claptrap. This sort of thing may be suitable for the students' union or in the moronic output of the aforementioned Piper and Jedward but hardly appropriate for the "Leader" of a large local authority. I have pointed out before her hatred of business and enterprise which she and her fellow "socialists" have tried to crush in Sandwell in the 46 years of Labour dictatorship (and largely succeeded!) Red herself seems to have recognised the problem with all this by starting to use an "official" Twitter account with the usual "public notices" but continuing to pour out her Corbynist bile on what she claimed to be a "personal" account. This was  wholly inappropriate and an open goal for the rebels: they have hit the back of the net.

Yvonne has a number of excellent qualities but as this blog has showed, she has "done an Eling" by lecturing local scum whilst living miles away in delightful rural surroundings. Like the Squealer she showed further contempt for the people of Sandwell by failing to make full and frank disclosure of the real position when this blog rumbled her.

When I was about 15 or 16 some bloke said to me words that I have heeded to this day, "never trust a f*cker who keeps grinning at you." Nevertheless she pushed ahead and appointed the sole candidate for Chief Exec after the hapless Britton, David "Grinner" Stevens. (Sadders have STILL not answered the Freedom of Information Request about the circumstances of his appointment.) Whilst I am not at this stage blaming Stevens himself for the deliberate dragging of feet in the various investigations he has given statements in the various Information Rights Tribunal cases of what seems to be gross delay in dealing with important matters, even before the excuse of Covid. Unlike the "anal" control-freak Eling who inappropriately micro-managed EVERYTHING, Red has been accused of being too trusting of the bent paid service. It is fit and proper that the elected wing of the Council to do "run" the paid service as happened throughout the disastrous Cooper/Eling/Britton era but she came in with the full knowledge of how badly many employees had behaved. I myself referred her to the antics of Surjit Tour and others but, apart from cutting off the snake's head, Britton, the body continues to writhe. It is a sad indictment (and there was an incidence only yesterday) that she has naively trusted elements in the paid service and this has cost her dear. She has repeatedly said that she was "unaware" of things the Council have been up to but, I'm afraid, the buck stops with her.

Whilst Yvonne has had ill-health pre-Covid it is not clear that she has kept her eye on the ball. Maybe living so far away has exacerbated her lack of control too. Some Councillors (even allies) have remarked about her stubbornness and Ann Widdicombe-esque refusal to change course even as the ship sails full speed towards the iceberg. Sometimes this can by admirable as when she attended Court to help me at the C*cksucker trial (she didn't have to give live evidence as the trial collapsed when the court saw the video evidence.) Sometimes her views are coloured by her ludicrous adherence to Corbyn and his ilk. An example of her intransigence was featured in this blog - the fiasco of the "business rates" meeting when she publicly stated that the solitary person who bothered to turn up paid business rates when I pointed out that he did not (and I was right.) I am told people in Labour have tried to advise her to be more thinking and flexible but, alas, she would not heed that advice.

The "Zorro Putsch" should continue tomorrow (Thursday) night at 7pm when the rebels are likely to force a vote of no confidence. If that succeeds there will have to be another leadership election. The full Council meeting is online and the public SHOULD be able to watch it (though don't hold your breath and make sure you take a p*ss if Zorro starts one of his shaming rants.)

I am told that although there are three deputy leaders (WTF!!!) none is an official "statutory" deputy leader who can simply step up. The obvious stop-gap (if there is a gap) is Maria Crompton (she has chaired a couple of meetings in Red's absence very competently and in a rather sexy-schoolmarm sort of a way.) Whether she would want the job full-time is a moot point and, in any event, Zorro's Barmy Army want to seize control themselves (although they seem light on numbers.) Of course, there is no-one on their side at the moment who is remotely competent to be Leader.

And so it goes on.... Forty six years of Labour disaster and even in the midst of the worst national crisis since the Second World War the "usual suspects" are wreaking havoc. Many locals have pleaded and pleaded with the Govenment to step in and ensure the governance of the rotten borough is finally placed on a proper footing. The only possible chink of light is that there are now three Tory MP's who must now step up to the plate and ensure that this horrendous sh*t-show cannot go on. They must find a mechanism to ensure that all the ongoing investigations ARE brought to a conclusion fairly and expeditiously with independent oversight where applicable.

Red Yvonne's bold attempt at reform has seemingly ended where is began - with Sandwell a national laughing-stock. Except it's not funny for the residents and the taxpayers who live there!

Where's Heathcliff?

It is indeed unfortunate that weirdo Labour Cllr Paul Sandars suffered a major stroke before Christmas. I am told that he did NOT appear in the online Labour Group coup meeting last night and I have been told that he still has "significant" communication difficulties. Which makes it all the more strange that he was apparenly able to put his name to the absurd "save Darren Carter" letter a few weeks ago (post passim.) You don't think a really vile comrade might have taken advantage of his his distress and put his name on the ludicrous document without him knowing do you readers?

Working From Home - Not All Speadsheets!

Massive rumour that despite the social distancing rules during Covid one female SMBC has ditched the spreadsheets in favour of spreading her thighs for a (married) Labour Councillor. We have a name but further info most welcome. No doubt the Labour Lothario was just "delivering essential services....."

Iqbal Padda - Residence Mystery?

It just seems to go on and on in bent Labour Sandwell. We have seen in this blog how corrupt West Midlands Police deliberately let the time lapse for any possibly prosecution of Cllr Lying Lucy Cashmore when she claimed to be living with her Cllr parents, Linda & Rog Horton in Hall Road Smethwick. In fact, she was living just down the road from me in South Birmingham. When the Labour scum know they have the bent Blues in their pocket they just keep trying it on...

We have seen that the the two most recent "leaders" of Sandwell Council, Steve "Squealing" Eling and "Red" Yvonne Davies "love" Sandwell so much they can't stand living in the sh*thole. The Squealer has a cottage in a pretty village in Derbyshire and Red Yvonne has a delightful (large) cottage and grounds surrounded by woodland near Ledbury in Herefordshire. These people tell you how great it is to live in socialist Sandwell but f*ck off out of it asap to spend much of their time somewhere much more pleasant. Meanwhile local morons lap this up and keep voting them back in!

I am not suggesting (yet) that Iqbal Singh Padda has broken the law but mystery surrounds his various declarations. He has only been a Councillor since 2018 and seemed to be a fully paid-up member of the Watson/Hackett/Moore/Preece coterie and he was a leading rimmer of the disastrous Labour candidate for West Bromwich East in last December's General Election - Jeremy Corbyn's pal, Ibrahim "Bogus" Dogus (posts passim.)


Thus I was stunned to hear that he had been promoted to Cabinet rank by Red Yvonne to fill the slot vacated by the sad demise of Cllr Bob Lloyd. This is not a racist comment but a direct quote from a Councillor close to Red Yvonne (insofar as anyone is close to her on the bent Council): "We hadn't got a Sikh [in the cabinet] so we needed one." Of course, in the ongoing civil war it would also be handy to split someone away from the rebel Barmy Army onto her "side",

Padda has been a complete non-entity since his 2018 election although he fired up when I asked him about his attendance at Gina Hackett's party when he and other councillors were cavorting with sundry SMBC union reps. Given his rapid promotion I decided to take a look at his background.

I would remind readers that to stand for election as a councillor you need to live or work in Sadders. Padda claims to do voluntary work in the benighted Borough (no doubt inspired by our old friend Cllr Rouf) but that is irrelevant as he gave his address to the election officer in 2018 as xxx Bromford Lane, West Bromwich ie within the Borough of Sandwell:


Cllrs Moore and Sandars supported his nomination.

Padda aslo claims to live in West Bromwich rather than Walsall on his Facebook page:



Now fair play to Padda he is usually immaculately turned-out and, despite his declaration of interests, he has been described to me by comrades as "a businessman". Having spent so much time in Sadders to bring you this blog I thought this was odd since Bromford Lane is a busy main road of mostly terraced houses and didn't quite seem his style.

I started to dig a little deeper and found an Iqbal Singh Padda and a female owning a property in Reedswood, Walsall. Hang on, says I - that isn't in the bit of Walsall than falls within the boundaries of Sadders. And, indeed, it does not - being most definitely within the Borough of Walsall:


As regular readers will know I have been financially destroyed by the GMB Union in their attempt to destroy me and this blog and so I have sold 90% of my business and hover on the very brink of bankruptcy. Thanks to the GMB Union there is no point in me working as all the money will go to lawyers and I am now able (as we come out of Covid lockdown) to really step up the scrutiny of the comrades again. Thus, early this morning, I was outside the Reedswood address. Incidentally, the Land Registry entry (pictured above with redactions) shows that Iqbal and his Missus have owned the property since, er, 2004 ie a mere 14 years before Padda told the election officer he was, in fact, living in Bromford Lane, West Brom.

Padda is married to a staff nurse and just after 8am a woman in a dark blue nurse's uniform came out and got into one one of the FOUR cars outside (one had a personal number plate including "PADDA".) Suddenly a doppelganger of Iqbal himself appeared outside to wave her off (I have photos.)

Satisfied that I had located the real Maison Padda outside the Borough I headed to Bromford Lane. Not only has Padda told the election officer he lives there but he has declared on his Register of Interests that he "rents" the property. I attended the house three times this morning and no-one answered the door. It has to be said that the place is a dump, more suited to druggies than such a fine man as Padda. On the pavement outside a Sandwell Council waste bin was spewing its contents out - surely a Councillor would have "had a word" for it to be emptied lol?


The property is owned by one Sarbjit Kaur of West Bromwich, Together with Karam Singh they run at least three property-related companies: Karma (Homes) Limited, Karma Homes Management Limited and GPS Construction Limited. One should never jump to conclusions but it is at least possible that these are also Sikh folks.

In the absence of being able to contact anyone living at the property this left me in a conundrum. We have seen that Red Yvonne herself is f*cking over the people of Sandwell by renting a property here whilst escaping the sh*thole that is Sandwell to her delightful cottage in the woods. Perhaps Padda is friends with Sarbut Kaur and as she clearly has property business interest perhaps he rents out the Bromford Lane dive from her to pretend that he is really living in Sandwell? Perhaps - though this is higly improbable - he really does live there and only goes to Walsall each morning to wave at his wife?

But hang on..... I am grateful to local community activist Darryl Magher for forwarding to me the bang up to date Electoral Register and here is the entry for the address:


Now Padda must have made yet another legal declaration to go on the voters' roll. It is legal to be on at more than one address but the fact is that you have to declare that you spend a considerable time actually living at the declared addresses. He was on the public version of the Voter's Roll at the Walsall address until 2016. Somehow I can't imagine Padda really slumming it Chez Bromford.

If anyone other than Padda is living at the poor quality address there is a very strong possibility that they are on benefits and so SMBC will be able to pick that intel up.

I am sure Padda has done nothing wrong nor involved others in any sort of conspiracy but we do need need explanations since the following are all CRIMINAL offences:


  1. Giving a false address to the election officer;
  2. Providing false information in the Council's Register of Interests; and
  3. Providing false information to go on the electoral register.


I have written to Padda copying in Red Yvonne and I am sure a full explanation will be forthcoming shortly which I shall hasten to pass on to you. In the meantime, I will refer the matter to the appropriate authorities just to make sure that all is above board. That's the right thing to do isn't it folks?

I am sure that Red Yvonne, if she is not deposed in the Zorro Putsch this week, will also wish to investigate fully after promoting the hitherto anonymous Padda so rapidly......
