Branleys have “previous”

with one comment

South Shields couple have been kicked off council before

I alluded to the fact yesterday that Mr. Allen Branley had previous form for being booted out of South Tyneside Council for non attendance, in fact both he and his wife Jane ceased to be members of the council on 20th December  1993 and 30th January 1994 respectively, after they had both failed to attend any meetings in the previous six months. At the time Allen Branley was the Labour member for Cleadon Park ward, and Jane Branley was the Labour member for the Westoe ward. Because the vacancies occurred so close to May that year, it was not deemed necessary to call new elections for the two wards.

Yet since then, they have both racked up a sizeable personal following in the Westoe ward of South Shields as Independents – there’s nowt so strange as folks!
