In another twist sleaze is making an unwelcome return to Redditch Labour Party


“The essence of your fraud offending is the abuse of the power and privilege which you enjoyed as a respected local government leader.”

The Former Labour leader of Redditch Borough Council convicted charity fraudster Dave Cartwright signs the nomination papers for the current Labour leader Bill Hartnett  to stand for election in May.

But it says a lot for the morals of the labour party in Redditch when a convicted fraudster can be allowed to sign nomination papers for the group leader.

I hope the people of Redditch won’t allow labour to take the votes of residents for granted in this way and don’t just give them a bloody nose but they boot out every labour coucillor seeking re-election.

The highest standards should be expected by any party or candidate asking for your vote.

The labour party might be happy having a convicted fraudster that stole from a homeless charity around the election campaign but the people shouldn’t.

Bill Hartnett who lives in Bromsgrove dosen’t deserve to be a councillor. How can people have faith in him when he shows such serious error of judgement himself?

Why would you re-elect a councillor that is bringing the spotlight on Redditch for all the wrong reasons

Some of these people have been councillors on and off since 1983 so have had the chance to get things done so what makes you think they will do anything for you now.

They think they have a god given right to be a councillor and think a monkey with a labour badge on will win.

Dave Cartwright was  branded a “common con man, confidence trickster  and something of a fantasist” at Worcester Crown Court. The 55-year-old  ex-leader of Redditch Borough Council, who had previously pleaded guilty to a  catalogue of theft and deception charges, was jailed for three years.

The essence of your fraud offending is the abuse of the power and privilege which you enjoyed as a respected local government leader.
