Baliffs pay BCC a visit
Tue, 19 December 2017

And so in a continuation of the Binmen strike. It's pleaseing to hear that the High Court granted an injuction to UNITE and told BCC they could not go ahead with their plans until a trial had taken place in November. An e-mail from Manzie to BCC staff announced the High Court ruling which BCC said they'd abide by. What it failed to mention was the Judge's remarks about Clancy, Manzie and battles within BCC.

The Mail reports the Judge said it was an"extraordinary" and "astonishing" state of affairs.He said the dispute had led to the creation of a "schism" between councillors and council officers who, he said, were "positively working against one another" at times.

According to the Post the Judge  said: "Neither party comes out of this sorry saga with any credit at all - I could use the words remarkable, extraordinary and more."

Meanwhile Ian Ward is now favourite to succed Clancy as Council Leader. What impact that will have remains to be seen.
