The Yorkshire Post published this piece in the wake of the Anti-Poverty Forum debacle and questions were being asked about Steel Action.
Reg Littleboy was a Councillor and Secretary, Labour Group at the time. A distinctly ‘part of the past’ retread, if ever there was one:
Phantom rail trip that still haunts councillor
ROGER Stone was not only one of Rotherham’s most senior councillors in 1998, he had also established a national role by founding Steel Action, a national coalition of local authorities aimed at promoting the steel industry.
He told the Yorkshire Post he made a trip to Motherwell “on Steel Action business” which had involved setting up a meeting with North Lanarkshire Council……
And at the bottom is this delightful quote from Reg Littleboy, demonstrating the arrogance and contempt, Rotherham Labour Group has for the people:
Coun Reg Littleboy, the secretary of Rotherham council’s Labour group, which could have taken disciplinary action, said: “You don’t expect me to tell you what Labour group did or didn’t do. What happens in Labour group stays in Labour group.”
