So Steven Purcell and his pal Ruth Black escape a spell in the dock. STV News
Purcell was supposed to have been worried that Glasgow gansters had footage of him snorting cocaine. I’m not sure why he thought it was a good idea to be hanging around with gangsters in the first place. Maybe that’s normal practice for Glasgow city councillors?
There was also concern over the £50,000 of council money he tried to funnel into Ruth Black’s new LGBT centre. The worry being that the last one she helped run went bust owing thousands.
She also forgot to pay the tax and national insurance of the employees. Oh they managed to deducted the money from people wages, yeah that bit was fine, it was the passing it on to the tax office that seemed to be the tricky part. Labour ended up suspending Black.
And then there was the allegations that Black was supplying Purcell with drugs. (half way through)
If you don’t laugh you cry.
