Bleakley has been in front of the council's standards committee several times in the last year after being caught with porn on his laptop and altering an email to try and get council officers blamed for it, sending abusive text messages from his council laptop and running up a £2,400 bill calling sex chat lines from his council mobile.
Bleakley has had his council laptop and phone taken off him, his council internet disconnected and is banned from speaking to female members of staff. Residents in his ward have started a petition calling on him to resign and now all but 2 of his colleagues voted in favour of a motion calling on him to resign. Yet still he clings on, getting nearly £11,700 a year in allowances. This is why we need voter recall, not just for MPs but for councillors as well.
