EXCLUSIVE:Reports reaching Mr Monkey tonight suggest that councillor Eddie McAtominey has quit his lucrative cabinet position on South Tyneside Council following his conviction for drink driving.
Apparently Steady ‘hic’ Eddie submitted his letter of resignation to last night’s Labour group meeting and citied his health problems as the reason for his resignation .. lying bastard.
Councillor McAtominey who is suspended from the Labour party and is awaiting trial on a charge of failing to provide a specimen will remain a councillor for the time being although there is some doubt over his position on the Police Authority which carries with it an annual payment of £10,000.
A formal announcement is likely to be made at Thursday’s full council meeting when a permanent successor will also be named.
UPDATE:Councillor Eddie McAtominey has also stood down from the Police Authority.
Miss Piggy aka councillor Iain Malcolm spent most of yesterday ringing round his chums to see who would be interested in filling Steadie ‘hic’ Eddie’s shoes. So if you didn’t get a call you’re not in Miss Piggy’s clique and you future is’nt very rosy – yes you’ve been spurned!
