A Conservative Council Leader resigned on principle. Yes it does happen, click here for details. This one had a track record of fighting anti-social behaviour. Back here in Thanet across the Thames Estuary, the silence from any Conservative representative on criticising Cllr. Sandy Ezekiel for his repeated anti-social behaviour remains deafening. I will be happy to publish an statement no matter how qualified confirming that any local Conservative considers Cllr. Ezekiel's misconduct to have been wrong.
My colleague Cllr. Clive Hart awaits a response to his letter I understand. welcome to the Labour Party Thurrock councillor Terry Hipsey who comments:
"I've spent the last two-and-a-half years trying to keep this dysfunctional Tory group of Councillors together. Recently, after having some time to reflect, it has become clear to me that this group - and the Conservative Party more widely - are incapable of making the changes necessary to take Thurrock forward."
