    Dodgy dealings in Dudley Council - Labour steal control

    Means that Labour have taken control of Dudley from the Conservatives.
    Report
    This means that the area of Norton which voted Conservative have been betrayed by their candidates who have decided to back Labour.
    This is unfair on the voters and damaging to democracy.
    I've tried to find the election results online and failed, but I would think Norton is pretty Conservative.

And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue"

    Anyway, I've written to my MP to ask him how this can possibly be allowed to happen. There was a majority of Conservatives supported by UKIP and now that has been destroyed by Conservatives backing Labour. If this happened in Parliament there would be hell to pay. I don't see how it can be right in local politics.
