Once again a Liberal Democrat councillor has left the Hull Lib in disgust. Councillor Mike Rouse-Deane has decided he has had enough and has crossed the floor to sit as in independent.
He joins a long list. Mel Taylor left this summer only weeks after being elected claiming that a small undemocratic group is making all decisions. Janet Toker's resigned from the Lib Dems claiming in her resignation speech “Hull Liberal Democrats are all about money and greed”.
In total 13 Lib Dem councillor elected since 2002 have left in splits, fallouts and disputes. No wonder everyone’s leaving them.
