It won't let me bump the original thread for some reason...
I get the impression that it was due to a complaint from a rival party member out to score cheap points.
Sounds like it was an honest mistake, and frankly, does anyone else think it's a bit off that all LA teachers and teaching assistants, or carers etc are barred from standing for office?
Yeah, I don’t understand why the police would be investigating this when I was told with absolute certainty in the other thread that electoral fraud NEVER HAPPENS.
It makes sense at first - ooh, potential conflict of interest. But then you think about it for longer than 30 seconds and almost anyone running for local government has a personal stake in some of the issues – that’s kind of the point.
I mean I understand barring people over a certain paygrade from standing- especially in departments such as planning.
Do teachers at Academy schools face the same restrictions?
as Academies take their funding direct from central government rather than the local authority.
Should have gone all Buzzfeed and just called this "You won't BELIEVE what HoFo's gone and fucked up now!?"
