steady eddie’s big day looms

Mr Monkey wonders how many bloggers remember councillor Eddie McAtominey’s brush with the law?

Last year councillor McAtominey was charged with failing to provide a sample when he was pulled over by the police on suspicion of drink driving. CLICK HERE.

His attitude at the time was defiant and he continually protested his innocence .. that is until he was caught a second time. CLICK HERE.

This time he pleaded guilty and was banned from driving and fined £400. Shortly afterwards he also changed his plea to the first charge and admitted his guilt.

Councillor McAtominey was forced to resign his lucrative paid positions on the Northumbria Police Authority and the council’s decision making cabinet and he was also suspended from the Labour party.

Blogers will recall that this is not the first time he’s been suspended – the first time was when he was caught manipulating the tender process in favour of his own company.

Mr Monkey over heard an interesting conversation in the town hall earlier today, apparently councillor McAtominey’s disciplinary hearing – before Labour North – will take place in the next few days and that whilst he has the full backing of his colleagues in the Jarrow Labour party, the outcome has already been determined – he will be thrown out of the Labour party.

Seemingly council leader Iain Malcolm has used his influence to get rid of his main rival for the leadership of the council.

Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether councillor McAtominey might use councillor Iain Malcolm’s own driving ban as a precedent for why he should not be hounded out of the party.

    Well i have to say, When steady eddie lost his seat for being corrupt about contracts from
    the g.m.b. Which his girl friend at the time was helping with, was nancy maxwell who was a secretary at the time for the g.m.b. got a very large compensation payment, So their must have
    been more than meets the eye as he went against hepburn for mp, as did robo elsom, but what i have heard is their is no love loss from his so called colleagues in the corridoors of power,
    and it could not happen to a better man,Totri.

    Tezza and John Totri – never words more truly spoken.

    Evry single one of piggy Malcolm’s horrid grupies has a bag of shite to hide!!!!

    It can be smelt at evry council meeting.

    It also includes the three ConLabs and that horrid little hobbit, with delusions of grandur- silly little turd.

    fri 10th july we got a call from one of our leaflet distribution staff 10.40 am who was delivering leaflets in hebburn mr eddie throwing abuse and insults at him so i drove up to his home (this is the first time i have ever seen him )to approach him and ask why so abusive??? our workers are all legal and what a narrow minded selfish man i met ….
    Is he a councillor? i am not up to any political debate as i dont vote in elections
    I witnessed this man using 2 council workers repairing his computer……. surely this is a waste of rate payers money and resources the two workers should have been doing what they are paid for ….
    how can any one with an education let that happen and abuse his power as we the tax payers
    pay for our public services whilst this man uses them for personal gain …
    In my opinion , i am not an expert in this area ,he should be instantly removed from whatever office he holds and be accountable for his actions..
    democracy not capitalism .
    kind regards
    mr m de matas
    distribution co-ordinator
