Southend local politics, summed up in one gloriously mad image

There was a lot that went on at last night’s full council meeting in Southend, and much that I will come onto later on. But if I had to sum up the whole of Southend local politics, then it would be the above image. The moment when Cllr Stephen Aylen (IND – Belfairs) whipped out a Sooty hand puppet in the middle of full council to ask a question.

Sadly, the town clerk ruled that as Sooty was not an elected member of the council, he could not ask a question. Just another day in Southend
