The gang of four becomes the gang of five

I blogged yesterday about the Gang of Four high ranking Labour councillors who have failed to get selected for the new Northumberland county council. The Four had decided to stand as independents. Well, I got the figures wrong. My apologies to Bill Garrett, Labour councillor in Prudhoe for the past 34 years. Seems as though I missed him off the list of those who have put their Labour membership cards through the shredder to stand as independents. So now there are five in the gang.

Cllr Garrett is standing against Tony Reid, current Labour deputy leader of Northumberland. Cllr Garrett is a rather long standing Labour member. He is also a member of the same family at Ted Garrett who was, for many years, Labour MP for Wallsend, until Steven Byers came along.

What a mess!
