The West Midlands Labour Party spokesman said that they routinely get two dozen Nike Air Force 1 Low Black And Gold
In opposition he had often been frustrated by the half hour time limit during which the council leader could at times escape any scrutiny in part by backbenchers filling the time with placed friendly questions, ie 'can the cabinet member for paperclips report back on the national paperclip award their department has won?', or asking the chairmen and women of relatively minor committees questions about procedure or some local difficulty.
Tim Evans has been the councillor for Hodge Hill ward since 2010. He is an incredibly nice chap, seems to have a positive outlook and a genuine commitment to social justice.
The leader and deputy leader now share 25 minutes of dedicated questions. But this comes after an hour of questions divided between those asked by the public (but only those pre approved), those asked of minor committee chairmen and women and those asked of cabinet members.
their relationship going forward, in Birmingham a candidate somehow managed to lose a vote in which his was the only name on the ballot.
The public certainly placed Sir Albert under scrutiny asking about his policy on the problem of urban foxes and the prospect of stopping library privatisation, the latter accompanied by a polite protest.
And finally that members were not happy to wave through a candidate who, at least to those of us on the outside of the party machine, seems a perfectly able and committed local politician.
It's not the worst result in local Labour selections.
Sir Albert Bore's big idea for the reform of the previously tortuously long and increasingly irrelevant full council meetings was to extend and open up question time.
people out on the doorstep campaign trail in the ward.
The supplementary questions failed to deliver the sucker punch promised and Sir Albert was even handed a chance to have a go at the Government over the very poor single pot LEP cash allocation in George Osborne's spending review, as well as highlight the lack of democratic accountability in the LEP set up.
So while the national party and their trade union comrades were wringing their hands and debating the nature of Nike Air Force For Girls 2017
But the grass roots activists had other ideas and voted, I am reliably informed, by seven votes to four, against his selection. One of the four was his fellow councillor Majid Mahmood.
The West Midlands Labour Party has told me that the selection will now be opened up for new applications and re run. They said Coun Evans can apply along with anyone else on the approved list of council candidates.
Coming to the leader's section, with the deputy leader Ian Ward unavoidably absent and unable to share the heat, this should have been a good time to put Sir Albert on the back foot, not least because his attention had been focused on the annual statement he was set to unveil later in the meeting.
Second is that a branch meeting, albeit one held as a British sporting hero was on his way to Wimbledon glory, in a Birmingham Labour heartland only attracted 11 members.
He even served in a Labour shadow cabinet as their spokesman on children's services but has not found favour with the leadership since they took control of the city council last year.
So several things are concerning for the Labour Party about this little selection difficulty.
It seemed a shoe in for Coun Evans, as the only candidate and one seemingly well liked and respected by colleagues.
Amid all the selection scandals currently enveloping the Labour Party there has been a strange tale unfolding here in Birmingham.
Apart from a slight blip in 2006 when an anti Tesco candidate attracted some support and allowed the Lib Dems to sneak in, Hodge Hill ward has been safe Labour territory.
But given their chance the opposition failed to land a decent blow.
The constituency, represented by Labour front bencher Liam Byrne, is one of the party's most secure Parliamentary seats.
Labour face a little local difficulty on selections
On Friday night, while the nation's eyes were firmly fixed on Andy Murray's epic late night Wimbledon semi final contest with Poland's Jerzy Janowicz, a handful of party faithful gathered in a community hall to decide who would stand in the 2014 local election.
First is that a safe Labour seat has only attracted one potential candidate the sitting councillor.
Perhaps it was because there was an end of term feel, given that this was the last full council before October, or perhaps because after an hour of questions on a remarkably hot day the opposition simply could not be bothered to get that worked up.
member told that a contestant in another part of the West Midlands Air Force Flyknit Womens got a single vote despite having four family members in the selection meeting.
I am told there were 13, but two left before the vote.
While Messrs Miliband and McClusky are arguing over the future for union party relations and how to motivate mass political party membership, they might want to first look at what is going wrong at a grass roots level in Hodge Hill.
