"Labour councillor Greta Sohoye made a dramatic defection to
Croydon’s Conservative party last night, during a fiery meeting at the
Town Hall. She claimed local Labour leader Tony Newman had marginalised and
ignored ethnic minority councillors, adding a recent speech made by
Conservative cabinet member Gavin Barwell had made up her mind to cross
the floor. The Bensham Manor ward councillor is the second Labour member to
defect to the Tories since March 2008, when Thornton Heath councillor
Mike Mogul switched sides in what was dubbed “snatch of the day”."
