The South Yorkshire Times reports (via Liberal England):
Astonishing in-house ‘harassment and bullying’ row leaves:
* Entire Labour Party branch suspended for over a year
* Detectives drafted in, to probe financial allegations
* Labour fearing 2010 local election disaster
* Party bosses ordering wall of silence
Meanwhile, in the Highlands, Cllr Linda Munro has decided to join the Liberal Democrats, as the Highland Liberal Democrats report:
The Lib Dem politics in action – what I have experienced, I like, understand and trust. Over the past twenty plus years, I have had occasion to seek the support of Robert Maclennan, John Thurso and more recently Jamie Stone. They have helped me deal with a variety of issues arising from meeting the life needs, of a severely physically disabled young person, living in a remote and rural area. So I have a long standing, affinity with the Lib Dems.
