Dodgy Dave Goddard, former Leader of Stockport Council, sent me the email below and the attachment. Mr Parnell was acquitted of the ludicrous assault with a sneeze in a £10,000 per day Crown Court Appeal Case.

Question – 1) Why did Goddard breach Data Protection laws to send me confidential information about another council taxpayer? At the time I had no functioning authority to act on Mr Parnell’s behalf.

Question – 2) How did Goddard get hold of a CPS copy of a court document within hours of someone being sent to prison, and why send it to me?

I asked the then Monitoring Officer to look into this, but being Stockport no action was taken.

Goddard and his LibDem cohorts and ?Masonic chums carried on persecuting Mr Parnell until his untimely death aged just 58, even hounding him whilst terminally ill in Intensive Care over £24 council tax arrears he didn’t even owe.

This was the CCTV of the non-assault. How did this case even get to court, never mind result in the imprisonment of sick, innocent Mr Parnell? Dodgy Stockport/Dodgy LibDems.

Nothing happened, as the Court of Appeal acknowledged.

From LibDem Council Leader Dave (now Lord) Goddard
Dear Sheila

Mr. Parnell was charged with breaching the ASBO on 16th and 17th July 2009 by entering the Town Hall. He appeared at Stockport Magistrates Court from custody on 18th July 2009. He was apparently adamant that he would not abide by bail conditions and so was remanded in custody to Forest Bank to appear today.

He did appear today. He pleaded not guilty and elected Crown Court trial. His next appearance is before the Magistrates on 14th September 2009. Today his solicitor applied for bail which was opposed by the CPS. The Magistrates did grant bail. I have attached the actual bail notice. His condition is not to come within 1 mile of the Town Hall. The only exception is when he is appearing in court or by prior written appointment made by his solicitor. There is no exception for attendance at any meeting within that exclusion zone and that was made clear to him. These conditions appear to be unambiguous. It is fair to say that Parnell was less than enthusiastic about these conditions.

Just keeping you in the loop.

Fondest wishes,


Ps, Glad you enjoyed the Stepping Hill by-election it makes it all worth it.
