Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose, as they say in that there France.There has been a change of Lib Dem Leader who is also Leader of the Council.
Well done Cllr Irene Davidson. The best person did win and in fairness, as Deputy she has been doing Alan's job for over a year but without the increase in allowance. This didn't stop Phantom of the Opera Dave Hennigan posting a back handed compliment to Irene hoping that she can now dedicate more time to the job. What a cheeky buggar he is!!!
The interesting thing is that Irene's day job is working at a prison. If all the rumours are true about certain polititians in Rochdale are true, could Irene be seeing more of her colleagues than they expect? Only time will tell...
Meanwhile, a sad sight up Willbuts Lane - the wheely bin at Chez Couzens has a discarded "congratulations" banner in it. Ambition can get very ugly- even for the bootiful people.
But despite all the Lib Dem backstabbing, sackings and appointments - who really runs Rochdale?
Even though Irene is now the boss lady, Rochdale is still being Rogered
