It’s not often I do this, but this is important, and the story has gained virtually no local traction – yesterday, The Guardian published an article about the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the suspension and dismissal of Paul Davies, the short lived Executive Director of Social Care and Inclusion at Walsall Council.
This astounding story has had little detailed coverage in the press, and I’m surprised to say, few local political types have picked up on it. Sadly missed too by the normally excellent YamYam, I’m linking to the piece here to try and get as many folk locally to read it as possible.
I, like many, have no idea what’s gone wrong here, but I’m not surprised. Following other high profile cases, this is just another bizarre incident to add to a list of unfortunate events under the current administration at Walsall Council.
