Wirral Labour councillor suspended for using special needs kids to deliver election leaflets

A Labour councillor in the Wirral has been suspended by the Labour Party after complaints were made about him using special needs children in his care to deliver party political leaflets during the election campaign.

Cllr Jim Crabtree is a tutor at Meadowside special school in Woodchurch. While he was supposed to be taking a group of children to some allotments he instead set them to work delivering leaflets for his colleague, Brian Kenny, who was standing for election for the Labour Party.
