So today’s news is that my colleague, Cllr Sarah Bligh, has crossed the floor to join the Liberal Democrats. To be honest, I think Sarah probably is more of a Liberal Democrat than a Conservative so I cannot say I am surprised.
Obviously, its disappointing, as I’ve known Sarah since she first became interested in local politics. But people have to do what they think is best and I have no doubt Sarah will continue to be a strong Councillor on the opposition benches.
She joins Gavin Booth and Stephen Court, both of whom are very nice fellows, even if I don’t always agree with them politically. I’d like to wish her all the best.
