Labour in London kicks out Scottish Council members

Four councillors have been thrown out of the Labour group on West Dunbartonshire Council for supporting an opposition motion of no confidence against their group leader.

The six-month suspensions - one of them imposed on councillor Danny McCafferty, who is the education spokesman for the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities - were handed down by the Labour party's national executive committee in London yesterday in the wake of a vicious internal council battle over the controversial dismissal of Ian Leitch, the former deputy chief executive of the council, from his 73,000 post.

SO HERE WE SEE HOW MUCH CONTROL LONDON HAS OVER EVEN LOCAL SCOTTISH AFFAIRS That's right keep voting labour.....keep your country under ENGLISH rule.
