"Send Cameron a message" - Labour cuddle up to Tories in Wrecsam

Remember the Labour slogan before the council election? "Send Cameron a message" they urged. Voters once again believed that voting Labour would mean defeating the Tories, regardless of whether there was a Tory standing in any particular ward.

Imagine how those anti-Tory voters are going to feel when they find out that Labour's group on Wrecsam Council has stuck up two fingers to the electorate and done a deal with the Tories that gives them a Lead Member portfolio in return for "an understanding" on key votes.

This deal was struck, it seems, because Labour didn't want to be totally at the mercy of their coalition partners, the Democratic Independent Group.

A single Plaid vote doesn't make much difference either way, I suppose.

I wonder what the people of the Ceiriog Valley who voted in such small numbers for Labour say now that their Councillor has jumped into bed with Labour?

First thing Labour will do will be try to close Pontfadog and Tregeiriog schools; then things will get interesting.

Vote Red and get Blue...what a depressing thought. How can Labour and the Tories work together? Surely they are diametrically opposed to each other...oh I forgot the old Labour party is long dead and has been replaced with Tory Lite!
