Lewisham Conservatives expel councillor
Cllr David Britton of Lewisham Council has been expelled from the Conservative Party are admitting that he was in talks with the Labour Party.
Ironically Cllr Britton had earlier been instrumental in denouncing another Conservative councillor for contemplating going into coalition with Labour.
There is now just one Conservative councillor in place doing this, Cllr Christine Allison. However Simon Nundy ran a strong campaign as the Conservative candidate for directly elected Mayor two years ago including a proposal for lower Council Tax.
