Candidate Campaigning Commences…in Hawkwell West

Just as it would appear one election is over, we've noticed that a Conservative Candidate has begun campaigning in the Hawkwell West ward.

So who is this candidate - Ian Foster?

With the help of our friend 'Google' Mr Foster reveals himself to be an interesting choice of candidates for the Conservative party.

It would appear that Mr Foster was a vice chair of The Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), which was 'savaged' by Ofsted and he subsequently resigned 3 months later. 

It would also appear that this charitable trust really did work on the ethos that 'charity begins at home' with this report in the Guardian outlining "a series of payments over the past three years to companies in which those running the Academy Enterprise Trust (AET), a registered charity, have a beneficial interest."
