And now the end is near.....

Today the actions of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council made National Press. Private Eye ran an article in their Rotten Boroughs section. The article is about an audit commission report which showed that the council were not a four star authority at all. Infact, it showed that because of a mid term financial plan not being done and presented to members of the council, amongst other things, the council were struggling to attain even a one star status. The article also shows that there appears to have been collusion between the council and audit commission to replace the Financial management Plan,with a document that was far more ‘council friendly’ in its content.
We anticipate that the council and audit committee will try and do all they can to wriggle out of these revelations, infact we are informed that they are trying to put out a cover story now as we speak. However, we welcome this. Because with all the documents that we have at our disposal which show exactly what they have done and how they have done it, every further attempt by them to try and get out of this situation, only damns them further.
We will be including all of this information in a final edit of the film Coatham:A common Concern, which is going to be shown to an invited audience at the House of Commons on Monday 10th of December. We approached an MP from another constituency who told us that he would be neglecting his duty as an MP if he did not act over the situation within this borough.To all the members of The Friends of Coatham Common and everyone else who have worked tirelessly to get to the truth I would like to say a massive thankyou.
