Tonight Pits N Pots (Tony Walley (he's the guy who apparently has been bullying me - unconfirmed)) have interviewed the new City Independent Group Leader Dave Conway.
Dave Conway the new leader of City Independent Group, has formed the most numerous opposition to the 33 councillor strong labour council with 7 members.
In the interview the new CIG leader Dave Conway speaks about his decision to include Lee Wanger into the group after Lee was expelled from the CIG during his last term in office because of his 2005 conviction.
The move strengthen Tunstall's position in the council as alone Cllr Wanger may have faced a long and uphill battle on many of the issues facing the town, now as part of the opposition CIG councillors have the right to sit on various committees and steering groups.
The group could have been 9 strong rather than 7, but Abi Brown, head of the local conservative group, Pits N Pots reports:
Abi Brown has confirmed that she and new guy 19 year old Jack Brereton will not enter into any formal agreement with the Independents. Neither will she welcome Lee Wanger into the fold.
