So, it's business as usual, as if the Councillor Geoff Booth scandal never happened? At 4.57pm yesterday the Town Council was getting ready to discuss, among other issues, whether Cr Booth's proposed profiting from prostitution had put the council into disrepute. At 4.58pm Cr Booth emailed his resignation and that was it. The carpet was lifted and the dirt, swept under it. ERWIN CHLANDA comments.
