The five were part of a group of youths who were taken to on the trip on July 17 last year, the day of an English Defence League march in Dudley in the West Midlands. The day-trip cost the public purse £2,113 and saw the group from the Tipton and Oldbury areas of the West Midands accompanied by a police officer and officials from the council.
I don't have a concern about them getting into trouble, my concern would be why the Council felt they had to take them to Blackpool in the first place. Would it not have been more sensible to lock the fuckers up in a police jail for their own protection and saved the Council Tax payers a right few bob, or is that against some ECHR regulations?
BTW, Tipton and Oldbury must be a right shiteheap if they thought Blackpool was better!
