Well I was wrong about Walter Carney. He seems to have remained with CAP. It is Cllr Don Hodgkinson who has jumped ship and gone independent.
Don Hodgkinson was the founder member of the CAP. In 2000 he was a member of the Labour Party which he left to set up the Community Action Party with Peter Franzen. He has now left his good friend Peter Franzen to go independent. In other words he has been a member of three parties in six years. He is quoted in the press as saying that he may rejoin the Community Action Party at a future date. Is that before or after he gives the Tories and/or the Liberals a try?
I don't often agree with Peter Franzen but I think he is right when he says that Cllr. Hodgkinson should resign and a bye election called in the near future.
