And so the new Leader of the local LibDems is NOT the new Leader of Colchester Borough Council.
And neither is the Leader of the local Labour party, or even the Leader of the Highwoods and Stanway Independents.
This is most odd.
Congratulations to Cllr Lyn Barton who has been voted in by the LibDem group to lead her party. But she won’t be leading them at the Town Hall.
It is expected that Cllr Paul Smith – who ISN’T the Leader of the local party – will lead the Council from within the chamber.
Like we said – the WEIRD LibLabIndie coalition at CBC is just… weird.
Meanwhile the Leader of the political party with the largest number of Cllr’s in the chamber does actually lead his local party.
But Cllr Dennis Willetts doesn’t lead CBC.
And you wonder why politics is b0Rked?
Feel free to leave comments below making the case that The Chronic is a closet Tory, Comrades.
