Last night was my first full council meeting as an independent councillor, and in some ways one of the more interesting meetings I’ve attended, because I could attend and make up my own mind rather an having each of my votes pre-determined by the whip.
I found myself, as I tweeted, at the back and on the left at my first proper council meeting on the back benches.
Eight years on exec and eleven in the council’s leader’s group came to an end this morning when I was gently sacked in the post-election reshuffle.
With just a few days to go before election day on Thursday I can’t help thinking that it doesn’t feel much like an election to me.
