70. Mayor John Walker.
Labour Mayor (Sefton/Merseyside) John Walker – Arrested and charged in 2006 with benefit fraud. Walker’s March trial date was then adjourned until April after he claimed he was too desperately ill to attend. However, just 48 hours after dodging his date with the judge the brave Mayor apparently managed to drag himself from his deathbed to cheer Liverpool on to a 5-1 Premiership win over Fulham at Anfield, where he was photographed by the media. http://tinyurl.com/23o9gp
