Seems many of you have been waiting for Mr Monkey to apply comment moderation.
Judging by the number of people that have taken the opportunity to leave comments, safe in the knowledge that no one except Mr Monkey will see them, this chimp is going to be extremely busy over the next couple of weeks following up some of your many leads.
Mr Monkey is fascinated by some of your comments and cannot believe that so many of you have been willing to tell all.
This chimp is especially grateful to the senior council officers, who at great personal risk have have forwarded some very interesting material for Mr Monkey to follow up.
He also thanks the senior councillor who forwarded several confidential reports and emails which will be used to expose council leader Iain Malcolm.
But the most interesting revelations concern possible large scale fraud at Newcastle Airport, news of an imminent u turn by council leader Iain Malcolm and a cheap headline grabbing stunt relating to car parking which is set to be announced in the next week.
Mr Monkey reckons this limited comment moderation has been very successful and intends repeating it more often.
