Disgusting piece of filth, they should all hang as far as I am concerned. And local politicians really need to be careful what company they keep and be much better judges of character than they are. Look at the track record of local and national politicians nowadays.. constantly involved in public rows and haranguing and accusing their local voters. I watched a video of some Tory councillor a few weeks ago slagging off a woman in the public gallery. TERRIBLE manners. It's time local politics became more dignified and careful what it gets itself involved with. And National politics needs to take the lead.

CRB is about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. It does not take account of the fact that this sort of filth has never been caught so therefore has no police record.

Read this link, last time he was in court someone gave him and kicking. Pity they stopped. So he was convicted and obviously lied on application and no checks carried out.

My new partner would like to see them have their bits castrated, stuffed into their mouth, then have it sown up.

I have been a volunteer working with/near children, and had 3 CRB checks.
