Town hall chiefs are using Kiaran Stapleton’s murder conviction to help kick his parents out of their home.
The M.E.N told yesterday how Salford town hall has applied to evict the killer’s mum Billie-Jean and dad Tony from their council house.
It was claimed the Stapleton family have ‘made life a misery’ for their neighbours around Regent Square in Ordsall.
A possession notice against the Stapletons has now revealed the criminal convictions that council bosses are relying on to prove their case.No, it's not just his convictions, either:
But the council have also listed a criminal conviction against his mum Billie-Jean Stapleton as part of the reasons for evicting the family.
The possession notice says: “On April 27, 2011 until October 27, 2011, you permitted the use of premises (on Regent Square, Ordsall) for use of smoking cannabis. You received a 12 month conditional discharge and were ordered to pay £85 costs.”Yes, I'm sure there will be people who will complain that this is too harsh.
To which I say 'You live next door to them, then. Don't expect decent people to..'
Twenty years ago I would have been at the vanguard of the fiercest opponents and critics of these proceedings.
A Nation in decline, exploited by the lazy and corrupt, has changed us all.
To be fair, I'd imagine most households have immediate/near by neighbours who smoke spliff. Most of whom are decent people.
And would you take a similar view if smoking tobacco in houses was made illegal? Because such an eventuality is likely unless the puritans are reined in.

Maybe so. But the cannabis charge is the only thing they've got on her, and it IS still a crime.
