Mr Parnell asked for help for counselling for his lovely, troubled daughters adopted from Stockport Council at the Environment and Economy Scrutiny Committee on 23rd September 2010.

He raised the matter of being denied access to agenda documents and denied the opportunity to make notes in contravention of the Local Government Act 1972.

Nobody listened; nobody cared.

Mr Parnell made the observation that he was learning law from a lawless council.
