Losing it at full council

We had another incident on Thursday at Gateshead's full council meeting of the Labour Leader Martin Gannon losing self-control. He launched a tirade at the Lib Dem group and totally lost his temper in doing so. He needs to calm down because further repeats of these temper tantrums are not good either for Gateshead or for him. 

As for why he loses his temper, I suspect there are two factors at work. Firstly, for the first time since the start of the Coalition, the Lib Dems are electorally hurting Labour in Gateshead. In the local elections earlier this month, the mayor and the head of office of Liz Twist MP both went down to heavy defeat. Secondly, I hear the vultures are starting to circle on his own side.
