In a blunt resignation letter seen by the Local Democracy Reporting Service, Paul Van Looy outlined his reasons for leaving the Independent Group.
“In my opinion some of the coalition just wanted cabinet post to boost their ego.
“With a Labour leader and the coalition, in my opinion they haven’t got the balls to get rid of the dead wood council officers at the civic centre, which needs to be done ASAP.”Hmmm, you may well have a point there, though...
Council leader Ian Gilbert hit back at the comments from Mr Van Looy saying it is inappropriate to attack council officers who are not able to defend themselves.Not able to defend themselves, eh? I bet Peter has a few planning applications denied in the future. And he'd better be very careful where he parks, too!
