Councillor used pseudonym to praise own work

The headline on The Independent‘s story about Labour councillor Ben Grower in Bournemouth is fairly self-explanatory:

Ben Grower posted comments under several aliases on the Daily Echo’s website.

But the newspaper in Bournemouth, Dorset, decided to name and shame the councillor after he posted praise for himself under the name Omegaman.

More details over on their site.

Ben Grower is, though, a mere amateur comapred with the former Labour leader of Swansea council, Lawrence Bailey, who managed 253 fake letters just over a year ago.
