Well, the BBC has decided this is a game they’d like to play too:
A former Worcestershire council leader has pleaded guilty to stealing tens of thousands of pounds from a charity.Sounds like a nasty piece of work, alright, particularly as his actions contributed to the closure of this charity.
Ex-leader of Redditch Borough Council David Roy Cartwright, 52, admitted stealing at least £24,695 from local homeless charity Step Out Drop In.
He also admitted making false claims for the charity totalling £63,467 between June 1997 and April 2001.
The court heard how Cartwright, who served as a councillor on three separate occasions between 1986 and 2007, had made false claims to the borough council, a charitable foundation and a government department.Just one question – what party did he belong to? It isn’t mentioned at all in the BBC story, and you’d think it would be quite relevant, maybe even desiring of a quote about this behaviour from the party in question.
But nothing, at the time of posting this. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
But if you Google (or just read local paper websites), you can find it…
