Councillor defects to Lib Dems

News just arrived from Derwentside in Co Durham. Bob Cook, Independent Councillor for Burnopfield has joined the Liberal Democrats. Derwentside Council is being scrapped next year and elections are now taking place to the new, unitary Durham County Council. Bob is standing as a Lib Dem in the ward on the county.

Though I am in Gateshead, Bob's Burnopfield ward borders Whickham South and Sunniside, which I represent.

After all the work the people in Burnopfield did with yourselves on the open cast campaign, the Lib Dems are recognised as the ones who led the campaign to defeat the application. He stands a good chance in Burnopfield.
