Councillor Williams Is Guilty Of Defrauding The Tax-payers, Has Admitted He Did, So Why Are They Continuing To Waste More Tax-payers Money On The Rest Of This Farce?

Been at Paisley Sheriff Court for this last week to follow the Councillor Tommy Williams fraud case as per the last post and it is amazing that this case looks as if it might go on for another week. You see Williams has admitted putting in timesheets to Glasgow Council claiming to have been at work when in fact he never was. The crook has come up with the claim that because of the pressure he came under being a Councillor, Deputy Leader of the Council and Convener, that is what drove him to commit the fraud - He disgracefully tries to claim that his superiors agreed to this to enable him to keep up his Pension Credits that he feared losing if he gave up his job - even though they denied this and said that they had no power to do so. This is a huge red-herring firstly because Councillors do very little work anyway - even with convenerships etc also with the c£30,000 per year he was getting from Renfrewshire Council plus the thousands he was getting from the Health Board he could easily pay for his own Pension Credits

The proof of my point about Councillors doing very little work was at the court all this week in Councillor Terry Kelly being there in support of his crooked friend Williams and to commiserate with him for his failure to adequately defend him at his Disciplinary Hearing when he was sacked from Glasgow Council.  Now witnesses saw Councillor Kelly point and say that it was all his  fault meaning a Mr Tom Gatley that Councillor Williams was in court because he reported him for committing fraud. Who is the ones sticking up for the tax-payers and constituents - It is certainly not any of these two Councillors . I'm afraid the person committing the fraud is the one to blame and no one else.

Councillor Williams and his defence claim that he has never tried to hide the fact that he was working full-time at Renfrewshire Council and at Glasgow Social Work which is a big lie as every time he thought he was under investigation he would remove the fact that he was employed at Glasgow Council from his declaration of interests on his Renfrewshire Council web page and then put it back on again when he thought it was safe to do so. Was this because Councillor Williams denied three times that he was employed by Glasgow City Council in the Social Work Department when questioned by a Sunday Mail reporter?

Mr Tom Gatley made an excellent quote in the Sunday Mail regarding this by saying "Councillor Williams defied not only the law of the land, but also the law of Physics by being in two places at one time".

Strangely it has been said that Councillor Williams wife could not give evidence at this trial and yet it seems she is well enough to attend the court to witness the proceedings - a picky illness indeed! Ah well, seemingly Councillor Williams has implied that if he goes down for this crime then he is going to take others down with him all the way up to his teacher and mentor Irene Adams. One wonders if any of these people are going to be some of the machinators about to be exposed in                                 http://www.holyroodexposed.com/.

Councillor Williams is guilty of defrauding the tax-payers, has admitted he did, so why are they continuing to waste more tax-payers money on the rest of this farce?

An automatic time-tracking system might have helped identify the falsified data sooner. Clever Timesheets (http://www.clevertimesheets.com) would probably have been useful in identifying fraud in this case.

I think Iain ( It time to bag some freebies and not declare them) Nicholson thinks that he has gotten off Scot free, just wait until he finds his expenses printed for all to see, although to be fair wee wee Jimmy Michael is first in line..

Jim Michael when he was claiming his expenses.

Surely there is more than Jim Mitchell and Ian Nicholson involved in claiming fraudulent expenses. What about Provost (Tory) Lawson caliming for giving her pals a lift for Christmas presents.

“You cannot fight the Labour party”.
Councillor Williams defence, appears, to rely upon whether he had an arrangement in place with his direct line manager Raymond Bell. Mr Bell denied this in court. Fact I was there. In court today Wed/03/Nov we heard from a Jim Callahan who was the group work (practice) manager in which Councillor Tommy Williams was a member of his team within Glasgow Social Work. Mr Callahan refused to sign Councillor Williams’s pay roll time sheets due to absolutely no hours being worked by Councillor Williams.
At a meeting between Callahan and Bell the two managers, Mr Bell’s reason to Mr Callahan when the issue was brought up is as quoted “you cannot fight the labour party”. No more was elaborated on from the statement. No more questions from the Procurator Fiscal.
The term went down like a lead balloon. Why? Well we all know that the politicians have been stealing our money for years and the system always states it is not in the public interest to prosecute. If someone was stealing our money how can any sane person tell you it is not in YOUR interest, to crave satisfaction, in full?
The answer given to Mr Callahan was extraordinary! Mr Bell claims there was no arrangement with Williams . Mr Callahan was angry at a wage, for a much needed social worker, being paid to a person without there being any service provided. In short he was pleading for a much needed worker, required to help the vulnerable children/families the department was set up to help at great cost to taxpayers.
Mr Bell in stating,” You can’t fight the Labour Party” was explaining to his college that Mr Williams was a Labour Councillor and it was unwise and impossible to highlight this fraudulent action by one of the ruling Labour Party Members. We all know what happens to (Whistle Blowers) don’t we?
Mr Williams spilled the beans in court, by stating, “He spoke to many councillors at conventions who had similar arrangements”.
Well regardless Councillor Williams, you took money from the peoples purse, money collected from our taxes, and lined your own pockets. Your claim of worrying about your pension would be laughable if we were not all so sore from the effects of the economy. Corrupt politicians, who in the main come up with useless fiscal developments costing the tax payer money so they can skim, cream, blatantly steal our money whilst providing a shambles of a service.
There are less and less Politicians who are honest, morale and blessed with some integrity. Unless the politicians are held to account we will never recover. Many a sound business floundered due to ignoring petty theft, it never stops there. Does it?
The Jury I am sure will have the common sense to convict. You see the truth is, the Crown have dumped a fraud case against an ex high ranking Deputy Leader of the Renfrewshire Labour Party on a fresh faced Procurator Fiscal, who we are told had ten days to learn her case and be prepared for trial, against not only an experienced QC, but Sheriff Spy appears to be hostile to the (young, pretty) Procurator Fiscal.
Why did the other 2/3 handling fiscals refused to try this case.
Simple answer is that it would be the death of their career. Remember, if you have an ethical or a criminal issue to highlight with the way Labour do business, watch your back. If you intend to make noises about it, or even try going public, no main stream paper will print political wrong doing unless it is a shitty we line at the back of a publication.
Mr Williams provided false time sheets and you took money in the form of wages from the People of Glasgow and provided no service for it that is fraud. Not so pure, albeit Simple to understand.
