Tom Marley, chair of BULS has recieved a positive boost from the visitor numbers for last month. BULS’ blog attracted 4515 visitors during one of the busiest periods in Guild politics. Marley will be cheered by the figures which will be a clear sign that, despite further allegations of sleaze, he has full control over the club and its members.
One senior committee member has spoken to BULSinside accusing Mr. Marley of assault and forcing them to write more posts. Mr. Marley’s top aides deny such claims and suggest that Marley has a very diplomatic and consensual style. In response to the numbers Mr. Marley said; “In what will be my final month as chair I intend to make sure that we recieve over 5000 visitors.”
The statement of resignation will send a lightning bolt through the BULS committee who have been positioning themselves for the top job. It is still expected that John Ritchie, former chair, will be returning at the annual general meeting to take over the club. After Fidel Castro’s resignation letter it has also been muted that the former Cuban dictator will be spreading his brand of socialism to the West Midlands, Jim Murphy MP has also expressed an interest.
