Earlier today a motion of a vote of no confidence in Alec Robertson, the Tory leader of Cornwall Council, was carried by 63 votes to 49.
Eternal drip Mark Kaczmarek accused Lib Dem’s Jeremy Rowe of being a “back-stabber” and a bit of a fracas ensued until Chairman Pat Harvey called for security, who led Kaczmarek from the chamber!
After a disappointing and irritating Tory faff in the afternoon, it was Jim Currie (Con) and Neil Burden (Ind) who were put forward as candidates.
Jim Currie won by a few votes, 49-46.
Several members of the cabinet, including our old friend Graeme Hicks, then resigned.
