Libdemologists: Pendle Lot Led by a Handful of Tossers


Lib Dems in Pendle have lost another one ... to Labour.

He said: “I have been involved with the Liberal Democrats for more than 10 years and it is sad that the party I joined has been taken over by people who are self-centred and only interested in their own gains at the expense of residents in Pendle.
“I have been trying internally over the last year or so to help to re-focus minds.
“While there are some genuine councillors in the party, it is led by a handful of people who have no respect for the residents we are elected to represent.”
County Coun Ahmed, who has sat on the county council for four years and has been a borough councillor since 2003, also said the £50million flagship Building Schools for the Future programme in Pendle had convinced him to switch.
“I am particularly enthused by the delivery of new schools for Burnley and Pendle which will transform the educational experience for all our children,” he added.
County Coun David Whipp, leader of the county’s Lib Demgroup, was unavailable for comment.

I bet he wasn't. Thanks to Miles for heads up.

Cllr Ahmed's term on Pendle BC runs until May 2011. I look forward to your post complaining that he has "stolen nearly two and a half more years supping at the council trough from the people of Brierfield"...

He asked to be a Tory first, but he had too many demands to be on too many panels (see: greed) your Labour lot can take him.
