FIVE thugs sent on a £2,000 trip to keep them out of trouble ended up attacking a man during the jaunt.
They were among 19 known troublemakers taken away to avoid clashes with English Defence League marchers near their homes.
Town hall bosses spent more than £2,100 on the day trip, which was supervised by a cop and five council staff, a court heard.
Prosecutor David Swinnerton said Sandwell Council organised the trip to "distract the 19 from anti-social behaviour"
Last night Race Equality Sandwell boss Derrick Campbell said: "I would not say the trip had failed."
My comment: No it was a resounding success wasn't it? NOT. Where do councils get these bloody idiots from?
