Labour Cllr on sick leave still attends Council meetings.


Some may recall tbg's story about Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson spending thousands on his own spin doctor.

Today it was exposed that Anderson's office manager & spin-doctor is on sick leave, trouble is he's also a Rochdale Labour Councillor whilst he's been throwing a sickie in Liverpool.

Councillor Richard Farnell is the Labour Cllr for Balderstone and Kirkholt in Rochdale and he's miraculously managed to attend 26 out of 29 meetings at Rochdale council since last May.
