The Times: Two more Labour defections to the Conservatives in Ealing

According to The Times, a further two Labour councillors have quit to join Tony Lit's campaign. Tom Watson must be spitting blood tonight and the LibDems will be holding their heads in their hands. Cameron and Shapps are doing a great job and whatever the result, there is no doubt that Lit has the best campaign.

UPDATE: I am grateful to Andrea, as always, who points out that they are Southall residents but former Councillors. The Times doesn't make that at all clear. Either way, a good catch and will keep the big mo' with Lit.

"further two Labour councillors "

I think they're former councillors and not councillors.

You are, of course, right - they are Southall residents though, I am slightly miffed that The Times failed to make this clear.

I think they imply they're former councillors somewhere

Check the headline ... I have re-read and don't see where this is totally clear although there some implicit references.

Andrea said...

yes, you're of course right about the headline.

Those 2 men weren't Labour anymore by at least 1 year as they stood as Indy in 2006 locals. >So it's a Lab to Ind to Con path

Rather like the Colchester LibDems ... they went Ind. for a fortnight!
