It is with sadness we learned of the death of Marlene Guest on the 23rd December, after a long battle with the asbestos cancer, Mesothelioma.
Marlene had been at the forefront of many exposures of Council wrongdoing, from the Anti-Poverty forum to more recently the child sexual exploitation issue.
I didn’t expect Jahangir Akhtar would be a fan of hers, but even I was surprised by his insensitivity, and that of his friends, on social media.
A small selection from Jahangir Akhtar’s twitter feed, for more click on this link, The Ex-Councillor, Ex-Deputy Leader & Ex-Leader Designate – Mr Jahangir Akhtar:
Rothpol has removed the offensive tweets made by Jahangir Akhtar about the death of Marlene Guest after a request from the family. I note Akhtar has yet to do the same.
