Chickens continuing to roost

York Council scandal refuses to die

We reported a few years ago on a scandal that the York Council presided over between 2013 and 2015.

Public relations contracts had been awarded without being properly tendered.

Now national magazine Private Eye is onto a similar case at a different Council.

In York the affair still drags on and indirectly led to the recent furore over the suspension of a couple of Councillors who were (incorrectly) accused of whistleblowing.

The Labour Councillors involved in the 2014 affair have now mostly left the authority. At least one, however,  hopes to make a come back at the polls  in May.
