Another one bites the dust
18 February, 2008
Mike Kane brings news of another defection from the Lib Dem group in Manchester. And only a few weeks before the elections as well.
It does raise an interesting question. First Manchester Lib Dems bin Yasmin Zalzala as PPC in Withington, then Faraz Bhatti defects to a party with no other representation on the council and now this so why can’t Manchester Lib Dems hold on to Asian members?
Clearly Simon Ashley (he’s the one Manchester Lib Dems call a “leader” though they have probably been calling him quite a few other thing as well recently) has not been listening to Asians perferring far to much Queen recently
