“… fed up with Momentum bullying and intimidation and the last straw was an Owen Jones event in their patch …”

Ashfield Cllr Lee Anderson defected to the Tories this morning, Tuesday 20th March and, posed for pictures with local Tory MP Ben Bradley.

A second Labour Councillor in Ashfield, Chris Baron, a former Labour council leader, has also defected to the Tories alongside Anderson.

These defections have reduced Labour’s overall majority on Ashfield Council from five to one.  Labour now holds 18 out of the 35 seats on the Council.

It is understood the pair were fed up with Momentum bullying and intimidation and the last straw was an Owen Jones event in their patch a few weeks ago.

The Hard Left is always asking Labour moderates, “why don’t you just go and join the Tories?”

Well it seems these two have taken their advice …
