Hastings Today carries a piece announcing the resignation of a second Tory Councillor in the beleaguered borough of Hastings. The first resignation from Daniel Poulter was on the grounds of pursuing a career in London. This time it's because Cllr Michael Lambrechs has been living for a number of months outside of the locality - in Spain. No wonder he's described as having "an easy going attitude" and "boundless enthusiasm". Wouldn't we all?
The Tory hierarchy in Hastings obviously don't give a monkeys for Cameron's hand-wringing over cheap flights - they flew Lambrech's back from Tarragona on the Med for a key budget vote which was on a knife-edge. Let's hope that the two by-elections in May deprive them of their majority.
