I am intrigued to read Cllr Pillai’s comments about the Labour group running Calderdale Council.
As we know, Labour does not have a majority of Councillor in Calderdale. The only reason that they can be said to be running the council is that, when it came to the relevant vote at the Annual Council meeting, Cllr Pillai and his Conservative colleagues ‘sat on their hands’ and allowed Labour to form an administration. The Conservatives, then, brought about the very thing that they now complain about.
