councillor brady quizzed about assault and battery allegation

Senior Labour councillor and cabinet member councillor Bill Brady attended South Shields Police Station yesterday in relation to allegations of assault and battery.

Councillor Brady, aged 74, attended the police station voluntarily and was quizzed by police about the alleged incident which happened last Thursday after the Borough Council meeting was adjourned following chaotic scenes in the council chamber during which councillor Brady is alleged to have assaulted Indy councillor Geraldine White.

Police have this morning issued the following statement,

 “We can confirm that a 74 year-old man attended South Shields Police station voluntarily yesterday (Wednesday 1 July 2009) to assist officers with enquiries in relation to the alleged assault at the Town Hall, Westoe Road South Shields on Thursday 25 June.

“Enquiries in to the incident are continuing and there has been no arrests or charges at this stage.”

    The cracks they are a showing, they dont like opposition in any form, dont question any decisions made in there labour council stronghold (the chamber) and you will go far, rock the boat and watch out.

    Looks like you’ve made a MAJOR error with your reporting and lack of verifiable sources old boy. To your everlasting shame you don’t even offer a public apology to the aggrieved party.

    Weare watching with interest.

    Councillor Brady, At the age of 74 is still some what abit of a biostrous person for his age,
    For to push another Councillor a Female one at that – is a disgrace to abuse his position in
    this way, It just go’s to show you what length they will go to if their positions are in jeopardy, As Councillor Brady & his wife Mavis have had something like £30,000 going into
    their house untill she was deselected and that was without their pensions & their jollies, So
    things can not be that bad in their house, Not bad for a jumped up pipefitter on his Grannies side.
