TEL-ing tales from the past.
The TEL (Tameside Enterprises Ltd) scandal was a sad reflection of local Government at its worst. How nobody was prosecuted is still a mystery! Over the coming weeks we will be reTEL-ing the story for the benefit of a new generation of Tameside folk who may not know the legend of TEL. Thrill to the story of the fabulous carpets without receipts! the little known organisations like SEL (Stockport Enterprises Ltd, TEL's little sister), the Councillors who gave plum jobs to their family members, the bosses who complained that the residents were living too long, (where was Harold Shipman when he was needed?) PLUS a bonus "Where are they now?" feature, detailing the present positions of the actors in our farce.
