Long term readers may recall a spat I had with him when he spoke his brains over a graffiti art project run as a diversionary project in Quinton in Birmingham. He accused Labour of funding the teaching of children to do graffiti and said that 'intuitively this seems wrong.'
'It just brings out the Victor Meldrew in me - I can't believe it... It is simply brain dead to teach them how to spray better graffiti.'
Now it seems that one of his own, the Lib Dem councillor and redoubtable anti-graffiti campaigner Martin Mullaney, is to start a similar project, with £1800 of funding from the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund and the backing of all three councillors in Moseley and Kings Heath. One of whom is Emily Cox.
Yes. THAT Emily Cox.
So, is Martin Mullaney brain dead?
I think we should be told.
