I am finding it difficult to believe that this guy is actually still a member of the Conservative Party, let alone an elected councillor.
Apparently, Alan Burkitt, a Sandwell Tory Councillor for Charlemont with Grove Vale ward, (who I imagine Bob Piper knows) pimped his girlfriend with learning difficulties on eBay for £50 a time making £1,300 in the process. He pleaded guilty to pimping and managed to escape a prison sentence.
Two questions, has the whip been withdrawn? And if not, why not?
Update: Apparently because he has received a suspended sentence he loses his seat. Good.
