Last Thursday, at the full council meeting of Redcar & Cleveland, a motion was put forward by Cllr. Steve Turner to scrap the existing criteria for Freedom of The Borough nominations citing it was "not fit for purpose" given the recent debacle involving my nomation of Eddie Straight. The result was a unanimous vote in favour by the entire council- all 59 members- and that included the Mayor. A working group will now be set up to review the FOTB procedure and rewrite the criteria. I would like to thank Cllr. Turner for taking up Eddie's cause and putting forward the motion entirely of his own accord. I would like to thank the Mike Findley MBE for his vocal support at the previous council meeting in December; and every councillor for backing the motion. Hopefully at some point in the future, we may yet see Eddie awarded the honour. Thanks to all members of the public who also voiced their support in recent months. I am working on the final cut of the film which I hope will be unveiled publicly in the Spring. Exactly where, when and how is TBA. Thanks!
