As you should know by now, Belvedere Councillor Dave Putson now
his ward as an Independent. He has set out his reasons for that being the case
in a lengthy
but admirably clear Press Statement.
Clearly, just as appears to be the case with the Conservative Party, the local Labour Party is not a happy place. Councillor Danny Hackett showed me all the correspondence that led to his resignation. I thought it was pretty shocking stuff at the time.
I would like to place on record that although Dave will be poles apart from me politically he has always been the most amiable and civil of correspondents.
Organising a vigil for a lorry driver murdered on his ward is exactly what I might expect Dave to do.
