I went to a husting meeting in Aston on Saturday, I wont bore you with all the details but there was some thing either sinister or interesting depending on how you view it.
A question was aimed at Kevin Barron, aka Sir Nutkin, about Child Sexual Exploitation and what he knew and would he condemn the Labour Councillors for their lack of action.
He did his usual, I have had only one case come to my surgery in 2003 and South Yorkshire Police refused to talk to me. Now being the ego maniac he is one would have thought, as I have heard him do on many occasions, I am an M.P. you have to talk to me.
What makes it more disingenuous is the fact it was still a Labour government with a Labour home secretary.
Later in the meeting he was pressed further by another questioner on the same subject and what he knew, This questioning was more robust, and a strange thing happened Barron changed tack; he said I am already taking some one to court for accusing me of knowing more than I am letting on.
I am not saying any more and neither should you; and he clammed up. Now I would have taken that as a veiled threat; or was he using the court case to hide behind; and by the way he would not condemn the councillors.
