Ian Dale is reporting that Cllr Zahida Noori has joined the rest of her colleagues in Southall Broadway and come over to the Tories.
At yesterday’s group meeting we accepted the original five into the Conservative group, they had already been accepted as members of the party by the national party.
There is some video of all of yesterday’s fun and games on Webcameron below:
The original story was covered in both the Guardian (yesterday in theory) and Telegraph this morning. The Telegraph had a prominent story on page 2 with a photo. The Guardian story certainly was not prominent on their website – I didn’t bother to buy the actual paper, I haven’t since I was in my twenties. I suspect the Guardian story was written up yesterday but did not make it into the paper.
