Sewer Politics

I've been following the Steve Hurst affair over the last few months, thanks, largely to Tony Parrish, Professor Chucklebutty &, latterly the Liverpool Preservation Trust blog. The details are a mixture of the surreal & the downright reprehensible. It seems that no depth was considered too subterranean by the Lib Dem councillor ( ).
Mark Brown, the presiding judge in the case, was damning in his remarks: "This sort of conduct brings considerable discredit on his party and on local politicians in general.
"This was dirty tactics of the worst kind."
Let that be Councillor Hurst's epitaph.
