BREAKING NEWS …
Mr Monkey has been told by a source close to council leader Iain Malcolm that he’s desperately hoping that the controversy surrounding his election victory in 2000 will go away, especially as he still reckons there’s time to find a suitable Parliamentary seat in the forthcoming general election with so many MPs announcing their sudden retirement.
Bloggers will recall that Mr Monkey revealed that councillor Malcolm personally ordered his supporters to collect postal votes before opening them and destroying the ones for the Tory candidate, Pat Piggott. CLICK HERE, HERE and HERE.
It now seems that a member of the public was disgusted by councillor Malcolm’s antics, he had the audacity to write to his MP to complain about his ballot rigging antics. The MP forwarded the correspondence to Iain Malcolm who responded to the MP’s enquiry by saying that his solicitor would be getting in touch with the person who made the complaint.
Apparently this is a usual Malcolm response when things get too hot to handle.
Mr Monkey is looking into this matter and hopes to get his hands on the correspondence which he will of course publish on his blog. This chimp can’t wait to see whether the council leaders has abused his position once again by sending his correspondence on council letterhead.
