What happened next…

KEEP tabs on the Islington Tribune for news from next door about how Councillor Arthur ‘pomegranategate’ Graves has resigned the Lib Dem whip and will vote as an independent following an internal spat. To think, he was part of the 2006 election team which wrested Belsize ward from the Conservatives. It was quite a momentum shift towards the Lib Dems, but look what’s happened to the three amigos involved – they’ve clearly gone their separate courses. Chris Basson resigned from the council suffering from depression and was later in court for fraud, Alexis Rowell joined the Green Party and now Cllr Graves, who headed to Islington after one term, has resigned the Lib Dem whip.

    Well Richard, those three passed the Belsize Lib Dem torch on to me a while ago. It is burning fiercly I can assure you.

    And, thankyou so much for keeping track of me. Who knew I would’ve generated such loyalty from the CnJ. Heartwarming stuff :)
