This week at a meeting of the Labour Group of Councillors ( including local party members) a motion was tabled of “No confidence” in Cllr Banwait, as Leader of the Labour Group / Council.
The motion was proposed by Cllr Paul Pegg, and seconded by Cllrs Bayliss, Anderson and Froggatt.
It was reported that, despite much discussion, and with Cllr Banwait diverting the conversation away from his personal performance, the motion was not carried.
Whilst Cllr Banwait still stays in his post, his position as Leader has clearly become untenable with at least 4 of the 26 Cllrs not supporting him. Reports suggest that they are not the only 4.
