Now that Norman Bettison has shown that he had nothing to do with the Hillsborough cover-up by quitting as Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police & taking a generous pension (http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/oct/05/hillsborough-bettison-role ), it's time we returned to the role played by Councillor Carol Gustafson when the discredited senior copper was appointed as Chief Constable of Merseyside Police in 1998 (http://condensedthoughts.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/local-councillors-support-for-bettison.html ).
Many had hoped that Cllr Gustafson would have provided some sort of explanation by now about the role she played. Alas, the silence has been deafening.
Perhaps her own constituents could raise the matter at her council surgeries in the Derby Ward of Bootle (http://modgov.sefton.gov.uk/moderngov/mgUserInfo.aspx?UID=604 ).
Cllr Gustafson will be at Bootle Library, 220 Stanley Road, L20 3EN, on October 10th between 12.00 & 1.00; Orrell Library, Linacre Lane, Bootle, later on the same day (time unknown); & Bedford Road Community Centre, Bedford Road, Bootle between 6.00 & 7.00, again on the 10th.
Others who want answers from Cllr Gustafson over her support for Bettison could contact her directly by phone (0151-928 6130), or by email (email@example.com ).
