I have just seen this on Facebook.

'The city leader was arrested earlier today by Merseyside Police along with four other men in connection with offences of bribery and witness intimidation'

He treated Liverpool Resisters appallingly when they expressed concern at his drive to change all women's toilets to 'gender neutral'

Oh what a terrible shame.

I'm going to invest money in Venn Diagram shares.

I googled him when I saw this on twitter because I thought the name rang a bell. Just watched his anti women rant in the council chamber from 2018. He was really enjoying it, worked himself up into quite a lather

Very definitely a dodgy bloke. Hope he gets what's coming to him.

"Oh, what a shame", said nobody

good!! he comes across as a truly unpleasant man. Quite invested in removing women's single sex spaces.

Let's hope the police are looking at his hard drives......

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Fri 04-Dec-20 18:04:17

I am not in the least surprised. His treatment of feminists has shown him to be a bully so witness intimidation is easy to believe.

Misogynist wanker

Redshoeblueshoe Fri 04-Dec-20 18:06:57

He's also been suspended from the labour party.
Ha ha ha

Shitty misogynist turns out to be a scummy bastard too. What a massive surprise...

HermioneWeasley Fri 04-Dec-20 18:09:30

I’m pretty sure he tipped off a paedophile friend that he was about to be raided, so he could destroy evidence.

He’s a vile, vile man

FannyCann Fri 04-Dec-20 18:14:36

I could be wrong and maybe they don't know each other in real life but I seem to recall him being supportive of a certain doctor who practices in Liverpool. hmm

PearPickingPorky Fri 04-Dec-20 18:17:42

Oh Joe who tipped off a pedophile to delete all the images of child sexual abuse on a work computer when the police were on their way to get him?

Who has a track record of very aggressive misogyny, and a dodgy track record with school girl safeguarding?

That Joe?

Great guy.

Ah Redrow Joe !

CaraDuneRedux Fri 04-Dec-20 18:24:06

Couldn't happen to a nicer chap wink.

Still, long way between an arrest and a conviction. Just been on the BBC news - I swear the newsreader delivered it with a smirk.

There was a post earlier about how to tell a predictor from a harmless person and I thought at the time how it's hard to put your finger on anything but some people just make your skin crawl.

Yup. Quite a few dodgy stories around Joe.

Liverpool is the proverbial rotten borough. Everyone votes labour and always have so no one is concerned about winning over voters. They only need worry about maintaining their power in their local party and then they can be sure of a job on the council for life.
