Ring out the church bells...

...Lutfur Rahman is finally banged to rights and central government has taken control of council finances. I cannot imagine that his position will be tenable for much longer.

For those not familiar with the reasons for my joy, I invite you to read these pieces.

UPDATE 06NOV: It is also worth - for the humour value - reading Rahman's own response in the linked Telegraph piece, on quite possibly one of the biggest abuses of power and public funds in my lifetime:
“The report highlights flaws in processes. These are regrettable. We will learn from this report and strengthen our procedures accordingly,” he said.
"Flaws in our processes", indeed.

I suppose that Derek Hatton must have said something similar in the dying days of Liverpool City Council.
