news last week that Cllr Jenny Hughes had resigned from Hedge End Town Council and Eastleigh Borough Council, the plot deepened over the weekend. Another email arrived from Jenny in which she says:
"Thank you for your email. I was just wondering if you could publish a
correct date for me. I resigned from council on the 28th November at
7:30am so am surprised to read that it was received and announced on the
2nd December, I feel that the cover up about when I resigned should be
questioned. It also raises the question of how much control does Keith House have over Hedge End TC?"
So according to a Lib Dem insider, there was a cover up, and Cllr House has some kind of control over Hedge End Town Council. We need to bear in mind that he is leader of the local Lib Dems, and leader of the Borough Council, and leader of the Lib Dem group on the County Council, but on the Town Council the only formally elected role he holds is chair of the strategy and personnel committees. And the strategy committee has not met since October 2012.
