Having blogged only yesterday about the volatile relationships between members of Southend Borough Council’s Independent
Party Group, it seems that they aren’t the only ones with a talent for losing friends and alienating people.
You wouldn’t believe the things which find their way to my inbox. A lot of spam and Nigerian princes with millions of dollars, mostly, but occasionally something interesting appears. Today, for instance, it seems that a member of the Conservative group has seriously annoyed a Liberal Democrat councillor.
Nothing especially surprising there, but causing enough offence to prompt a particularly aggrieved complaint to John Lamb, local Conservative leader, is something of a slightly different order.
