"My reason for resigning is that the expectations of the role have expanded to require the chairman to be available at short notice throughout the year, irrespective of routine arrangements for deputy and executive cover.
Dilley's wife is from Jamaica but initially he claimed she is from Barbados.
But however you look at it people suffering loss of homes and businesses were left without a pot to you know what in and a lack of support; that is not acceptable especially from a man being paid £100,000 a year for a part-time role.

He quickly deleted the post and offered his apology for the caption but he is still toast.
The official line from the authorities is that he is being deported as his work documentation was not up to scratch.

A Go Fund Me page has been launched to help pay for funeral costs for Calzadilla, a father of a young child.
Saturday it has been widely reported "Obama to announce executive action on guns" and you have to say 'at last. However the powerful gun lobby in the USA will fight any restrictions tooth and nail and in a presidential election year the Democrats and the Republicans will not want to make waves.
