Cllr Willis thinks the recent spate of Labour defections to the Tories in London might be mirrored in Reading. He thinks there might be Labour councillors in Reading who would be welcomed into the Tory group. Maybe he is right. It has happened once already, this quote from His Master's Voice (so it must be true)
Azam Janjua gained a seat in Church ward for the Conservatives – he stood down as a Labour Party member a year ago in the same ward.
The taxi driver said: “I am very pleased to be elected. I will commit myself to the ward and promise to the residents of the ward I will work for their welfare.”
My personal knowledge of Azam Janjua is that he did exactly that when he was a Labour councillor for Church ward.
So who else is going? Now that Dictatorship Dave "moronic members of the public" Sutton has been trashed by the electorate of Katesgrove ward perhaps we will not see another disgraceful campaign of bullying and smear by the Labour Group - though I'm not holding my breath. But members of the current Labour Group in Reading have good reasons to escape the corrupt dungheap that is the politics of Reading Labour councillors. If you have a shred of decency left, go.
