Vote of no confidence in ex-Lib Dem Wigan porn councillor

Wigan councillors have passed a motion calling on disgraced former Lib Dem councillor, Robert Bleakley, to resign.

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.
