28 more members of our Lib/Lab/Con hall of shame since 22 April

We thought it might be time to update our list of 291 Lib/Lab/Con councillors who've been in trouble: after all, a week has passed, and so there are another 28 since the 22nd April.

*The point of the list is not that none of them were subsequently cleared but rather that the BBC would have opened a dedicated channel for any of them who were UKIP. Who saw on the BBC National News the 2 Labour candidates - one a PPC - convicted of fraud last Friday?

The list is correct in that there are 319 councillors from other parties who have been arrested, convicted, sentenced, stood down, been disgraced, associated with criminals, questioned in the local press about unethical actions or who have been plain useless, incompetent or offensive. Nope not Hope makes no other claims in relation to it.

As to 'wives and children', we refer the BBC to 'Nigel Farage says German wife not taking British job' from their own website.*
