Wigan councillor defects to Tories

Cllr Edward Houlton, has defected from the Community Action group on Wigan Council to join the Conservatives. The news represents a breakthrough for the Conservatives in Wigan as they now become the official opposition to the Labour-run administration - for the first time in 30 years. 

The number of Tory councillors in Wigan thus rises from 14 to 15. I wonder what George Orwell would have made of it...
