Mike jumps from the Cons
The second week of Cornwall Council has started with a surprise. As a arch-conservative has left the party they stood under at the election and has become an independent Councillor. The person in question is Mike Eathorne-Gibbon.
Not only has Mike left the Conservatives, but he has joined the Independent Group. This has been met with a few raised eye brows within the Indi Group.
Of course the rumour mill is in overdrive at Cornwall Council with the presses saying more Conservatives could jump.
From all this manoeuvring we might find the make-up of the political groups at Cornwall Council very different to the election results by the Council’s first full meeting on the 21st.
