Today's Post carried a story about yet another defective defecting Asian Liberal Democrat councillor. This was something of a pre-emptive strike against Cllr Abdul Aziz by his former best friend, Cllr John Hemming, the eminence grise behind all things Liberal Democrat on the City Council.
Cllr Aziz has abandoned the Liberal Democrat ship and will join Cllr Talib Hussain on the independent benches in front of the Labour Group. I understand that we can expect some strong views from him on the subject of the Liberal Democrats and John Hemming in particular.
Oh - is that promised attempt to redress the balance of representation in the executive any further forward?
