Mike Bird elected leader of Walsall Council…

  • Bob I agree entirely with your sentiments here. Now as evidenced by last nights council meeting and Mike Fs and Ian Ss last blogs the trouble has started already-they have got the wrong leader. Now lets see how they get out of it before Walsall decends back to the bad old days of 2000-2002 and someone gets rid of them.

    All the best
    Mike
