Yet another Lib Dem councillor defects to the Tories
Another day, another Lib Dem councillor joins the Conservatives. Cllr John Yates of Northampton Borough Council has joined us. Welcome aboard.
By the way my reference in the defection I reported yesterday - querying why the news wasn't leading the BBC bulletins - was a joke. I don't think it should have been - but neither should the defection of a Sandwell councillor away from the Conservatives. The point is to have consistency.
