Anyway, Sefton Conservative leader Councillor Paula Parry has called on the former Tory to resign:
“I am astounded that a man such as Les Byrom, who has been a Conservative politician for more than 30 years, should suddenly decide to defect to the Labour Party who, as we all know, are at their lowest ebb in the opinion polls since Michael Foot was their Leader.What a bloody fool. Goodbye Les and good riddance.
“I cannot believe that the residents of Dukes Ward will want to wake up tomorrow with Les Byrom as their new Labour Councillor. Labour came a very poor fourth just five weeks ago in Dukes Ward. I would expect him to resign his council seat immediately.”
UPDATE: More on this moron from The Raven.
