The Liberal Democrats have totally lost the plot on the whole Cllr David Clues situation. The Willesden and Brent Times are now reporting that the Councillor who has been living in Brighton since December 2011 will step down in November so that his post can be held with the next set of elections – LINK
The next elections will be in May 2014.
On Dispatches, it was revealed by Cllr Clues that his allowances have been channelled to the Brent Liberal Democrats.
The Lib Dems cry about election costs to the taxpayer but in 2012, we called for him to resign and have the elections held on the same day as the May London 2012 elections – LINK
Instead, the Lib Dems chose to do nothing and accept this standard of Councillor commitment.
I can reveal that the whip has also failed to act with no response received to date on the email pictured below.
What a load of yellow mess. The Lib Dems should publicly apologise for this shameful situation.
