Its another embarrassment for Miliband, if true it shows that his party still has a serious corruption problem and it looks true to me.
Just a vehicle for profit and in this case open cast coal. Killing our planet and pocketing at the same time.
Councillors who take gifts, cops who spy and fuck the people they spy on, the UK is closer to countries like Libya and Bahrain than you might think.
If you protest at open cast coal you are almost certainly being watched by private security employed by coal interests, do they employ the Labour Party as well?
Another case of political corruption has been exposed today with the revelations that Labour councillor for Ballochmyle, Jimmy Kelly accepted a number of “gifts” from Scottish Coal prior to chairing the committee which recommended the controversial mine at Dalfad for approval.
The former miner and councillor of over 20 years accepted an all expenses paid trip to Spain from Scottish Coal in 2008 which included flights, hotel and tickets to the Barcelona vs Celtic Champions League match. Kelly has also received complementary Christmas hampers from the company and was their guest at a fundraiser dinner.
