Where is ex-BNP councillor Sadie?
A COUNCILLOR has called on Sadie Graham to clarify her position on Broxtowe Borough Council following her arrest in connection with the unauthorised publication of the BNP party membership list.
Richard Jackson, leader of the Conservative opposition, said no one had heard from the independent nationalist councillor since her arrest at her home in Church Lane, Brinsley, on December 4.
Coun Graham and a second person, arrested by Notts Police on behalf of Dyfed Powys Police, have been bailed pending further inquiries.
Coun Jackson said: "I've heard that she has bought a house down south but it's said that she's not planning to resign as a Broxtowe borough councillor. Brinsley is a one-member council ward ... someone living hundreds of miles away cannot properly represent its people. The people of Brinsley deserve to know where they stand, and so do we."
A close friend of Coun Graham's last week told the Post that the councillor had received threats and had been preparing to move south.
A Brinsley Parish Council spokeswoman said: "She attended our December 3 meeting but we are unsure of what's happening."
Simon Smith, borough head of legal services and monitoring officer, said: "I am not aware of her being anything else than a member of this local authority."
Coun Graham left the BNP in 2007. She was unavailable for comment last night.
