Nick C Legg - My Fake Diary
Monday, 16 July 2012
Clive Skelton, who has been a Lib Dem Councillor in Sheffield since 2004, has defected to Labour.
Just 14 months ago the Lib Dems ran Sheffield Council, now we have just 22 councillors.
Skelton said: "I have been a member of the Liberal Democrats for 20 years but the party I joined no longer seems to exist. I believe in progressive left-of-centre politics, and so have watched with increasing concern, anger and desperation as Nick Clegg has overseen an alarming lurch to the right. The recent damaging NHS reforms were the last straw for me - I am not prepared to be a cheerleader for David Cameron and his Tory government, so I have decided enough is enough!"
What next? I'm getting depressed you know!
