Another day, another Lib Dem councillor joins the Conservatives. Cllr John Yates of Northampton Borough Council has joined us. Welcome aboard.
By the way my reference in the defection I reported yesterday – querying why the news wasn't leading the BBC bulletins – was a joke. I don't think it should have been – but neither should the defection of a Sandwell councillor away from the Conservatives. The point is to have consistency.
