Wigan Labour Party corruption
Manx Man said:
Wigan Council has been rocked by two scandals' in the space of a few days.The former Chairman of Wigan Labour Party,Dorothy Abbott, has pleaded guilty to Benefit Fraud to the tune of £28,500, and has been told the she could face prison if found guilty.
A few days later the headlines of the local newspaper, ran an article about Councillor Joe Shaw.His home in Standish was raided by Police officer's who upon entering the premises, took away Councilor Shaw's computer, which allegedly contained images of child pornography.
Councillor Shaw was not at home at the time, so police officer's went to Wigan Town hall and detained Councillor Shaw as he left a council meeting .
Councillor Shaw represents the Wigan West ward of Wigan council and was elected in 2006.
The Wigan Labour party is 'rotten to the core' and Dorothy Abbott is involved with Wigan and Leigh United against Racism, a front group for the Anti Nazi League.
If Councillor Shaw is charged with this offence, I am sure his electorate would not want a peadophile as their Councilor.
