I gather that the subject of he-who-cannot-be-mentioned came up, Jonathan Ledger, the erstwhile and disgraced former General Secretary. Apparently Napo had written to him asking for some of the cash back, but it seems this met with a polite but sympathetic negative response citing the fact that the whole episode had 'ruined his life', but that he did regret not informing his employers earlier of the relationship. It should probably come as no great surprise that the NEC have decided that trying to chase him earnestly for money would be both a waste of time and money. I wonder if the membership will ever get a full explanation?
Finally, given the on-going loss of members, together with the need for a strategy to see the union through these difficult times, many might find it surprising that I gather no report was forthcoming from Campaign Committee. Is it any wonder that some members might feel there are some serious shortcomings in management at the top of this union?
