Statement following conviction of Councillor Dave McLuckie

Reacting to today’s (18th June 2013) guilty verdict for Councillor Dave McLuckie for perverting the course of justice, Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland MP Tom Blenkinsop said:

“No one is above the law, and that applies to every elected politician and public servant. The Labour Party should not – and will not – tolerate this type of illegal behaviour.

“With a jury finding Cllr McLuckie guilty of an extremely serious offence and the Judge warning he faces a likely prison sentence, I am repeating my previous calls for him to resign as a Skelton ward councillor. He must do this as a matter of urgency. The people of Skelton and East Cleveland must come first; they expect and deserve far better.”
