Now that's a promise!

After Warren emerges as the latest Lib Dem to be cleared following a Standards Board complaint by Joe Anderson, Pitbull Joe has promised never to snitch on anyone again.

Thanks to one of my readers for passing me this article from the Local Government Chronicle
"I think the Standards Board has lost the confidence of many, many people in local government," said Cllr Anderson, who filed the original complaint against Cllr Bradley in November 2007. "As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't make a referral ever again about anyone's activity."

As the Pitbull has managed to report almost every Lib Dem Councillor to the standards board, several times over, I'm sure the Standards Board will be relieved to hear this promise.

Over the years, Joe has whinged to the standards board about everything, from Lib Dems using unflattering pictures of him on leaflets to councillors daring to call meeting to oppose Post Office closures.

I would like to think he has seen the error of his ways and wants to give up being seen as the schoolyard grass. But it probably has more to do with the fact that no one has ever been found guilty as a result of his ludicrous complaints, and he's realised that the standards board just regard him as a time waster!

Lets see how long he can keep his word? After all, Labour politicians usually manage to keep their promises up until the day after election. It's going to be a struggle Joe, but we're all routing for you!

It would be interesting to see just how much money has been wasted over the last few years by the standards board looking into allegations from Anderson and his ilk!
