The Thick of It

Being a councillor isn't working?

It obviously doesn't count if you are a Lib Dem.

In Birmingham a Lib Dem has been claiming Incapacity Benefit because he is too ill to work. However, Saeed Ahmed obviously didn't have a problem with running for election in 2002, 2004 and 2007. The reason why - according to the Birmingham Mail, because "he thought it would be an easy life." !!!

Ahmed was kicked out of the Labour Party after originally being selected as a Labour candidate when he failed to answer questions about this.

I suppose it is if you don't bother doing anything to help the people who might have elected you in your ward.

The pure cheek of it. This country.
