Full Council Meeting
The Lib Dems showed themselves to be the nastiest party in politics at this month’s Council meeting. In a co-ordinated action they abandoned any attempt to argue policy and instead concentrated on personal abuse. In the three years I have been a councillor it was the worst show from any group on the council. They are clearly rattled, hate having to make decisions, and have decided to behave as bullies and thugs. At one point in order to look menacing Minns had two other councillors stood either side of him whilst speaking. From where I sit I can see the more sensible Lib Dem councillors cringe at the comments and speeches of their own colleagues. The Lib Dems have lost 11 councillors in the past few years to defections. It was very clear why at this meeting. Having spoken to some councillors not in the Uni group there are clearly more defections to come!
