Regular readers may be aware of the fuss which broke out recently in these parts about comments I lightheartedly made about a neighbouring Metropolitan Borough. The Leader of that Council pompously made much play of the fact that if I didn't apologise he was "going to report me to The Standards Board of England and Wales". Just to keep you up to date, I have received a letter from the Standards Board. Their verdict? As predicted... no case to answer. Thanks to all those, particularly my constituents, who sent messages of support. I will try to get round to writing to you.
