Ex-Mayor of Telford Quits Labour
Cllr Kevin Guy, who was returned as borough Councilloe to the Woodside ward in 2015, has announced that he is leaving the Labour party.
“I have decided to join the Liberal Democrats because I believe Jeremy Corbyn is taking the Labour Party in the wrong direction & Labour’s fudge on a second referendum is not something I agree with.”
While Cllr Guy is joining the Lib Dems, he offered his support to the Labour Council.
“The Labour run council in Telford & Wrekin have done a fantastic job in defending local people from the savage Tory cuts & I will continue to support that but I cannot stay in a party which, nationally, I so fundamentally disagree with on the main issue facing this generation.”
The next elections for Telford Borough Council are due in 2019.
