". . . but Labour group leader, Christopher Akers-Belcher, said there is no such term as “independent Labour” and said they should seek re-election through a by-election."

"Coun Akers-Belcher said: “They are no longer in the Labour Group and given they have been so vocal on political principles they have no mandate to be a councillor and as such should abide by their conscience and seek re-election through a duly called by-election.

I wonder if CAB will say the same thing about His partner SAB, mother-in-law and friend(?) Barclay?

If SAB does (leave / get pushed from) the Labour Party and stays on as an "independent" councillor then the question definitely needs to be directed at the Council Leader at the first full meeting as SAB still has a significant amount of time left on his term.

Will he not join his mother & Barclay as Socialist Labour? Or maybe they won't accept him. Believe that the Independent Union won't entertain such a faction.

Their time is up. So jumping ship and starting afresh is their only option to hang on.
I think they’re going to find it a traumatic experience when the penny drops like a cast iron manhole cover and they realise the only reason they were elected in the first place was their Party badge. It was never their intrepid leadership, statesmanlike demeanour or dynamic plans for the town because they never possessed those traits in the first place, simply the biggest elbows in the Party.
Only option, join another Party or stand as an Independent and try and leave blaming someone else or thing for your reluctant departure. I can see more going.

When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you, you know your nation is doomed.

It was 'Virtue Signalling' writ large. They were part of Mandy's little group of 'close friends' and the local party (Jonathan 'with an 'a' included) thought it would be a spiffing idea to get a gay couple into positions of power to hoover up the pink vote.  Turns out that not all oppressed minorities are good or competent  people. The pair are shallow, vindictive and without any moral compass whatsoever. They were also the poison apples that infected the barrel . Merde attracts flies and the con-men knew an opening (see ditching of the town plan) when they saw it. Ray seems to have gotten most of the cream but a not insubstantial sum found its way into local beauty Parlours. The Botox injectors and the  'Back, Sack & Crack' operatives made a mint.  I shudder thinking about those who had to get get up close and personal to 25 stone of festering lard oozing from the table-they at least earned their reward!
The only reason the Local Party are trying to turf them out is because they are now losing them votes, When they were corrupt greedy lying baskets but raking in the votes Carl & Co. could live with their avarice, once it started to look like it would cost them power then they were marked out for defenestration. It could go wrong and frankly I don't care which faction wins. All new brooms quickly adopt the ways of the old brooms. In fact the tactics used by the SCABs to silence opposition and entrench their power were voted in by Labour themselves. It's the standard Labour way of using the 'Rules' to silence dissent. CAB didn't invent those tactics he just made sure he was the one who chose which rules would be (selectively) enforced.

They’ll not leave quietly. A huff will be followed by rampant self pity and martyrdom on a biblical scale. I’d expect nothing less, always the same script.

I think we will see a massive amount of looting and bending of the rules and regulations to try and protect the SCAB Cabal's  income stream for as long as possible after their arses finally hit the pavement.  Cranny is probably the one who will leave a trail that will eventually come back to bite him.

It’ll be like Napoleons retreat from Moscow only on a more flamboyant scale and even more animated histrionics. A rearguard action.

Lets hope they have the sound of arrest ringing in their ears

I'm at a loss for words at the moment -

So, did he deny it?  Maybe I've missed something.... apart from his whingeing and whining, of course!  As IK has said, they won't go quietly, probably because they've got a good income stream from Healthwatch and the Rifty/ My Cafe.

So you should. This man has been a tireless campaigner for social justice  for 22 years (since he was 12. It started during his first year in 'Special Needs' at the then Claremont. He must have been really special because he spent 4 years there!)For his pains has been picked on and bullied ever since. There was that scandalous allegation  he  forged his overtime sheets at one establishment and he had to leave(total fiction, would a man of such outstanding character really stoop so low as to lie and cheat?) before he got the boot. Then when Newcastle Council got wind he was just about to expose corruption at one of their homes they moved swiftly and 'framed him' by  claiming he invented relative's funeral in order to qualify for a paid holiday. It was further alleged  that  he also claimed expenses from Hartlepool Council for the same day and was thus  paid twice for the one Council Jolly.  SAB was a whistle-blower and was confident he would expose Newcastle's  duplicity  but disaster struck again. Come the day of his appeal he confined to his bed by a crippling illness and realised he could not make it as far as Newcastle.  Instead our hero gritted his teeth, ignored the debilitating pain and managed to drag himself just as far as the The Civic where he confirmed the appointment of the present Chief Executive. Even when at death's door he knew he had a duty to speak up for the people of Hartlepool. Given the choice of defending himself or speaking up for the townsfolk he chose that latter. He allowed his name to be dragged through the mud because the public good was more important.
If truth be told he deserves many more medals than the 2 (at £2000 each) he awarded himself. You are an ungrateful lot!

No he did not deny it. He confirms he 'did it' but whines that its not a serious a charge as the complaints he has made against the people  (like Tom Cook) who are now complaining about him. He has decided the best defence is 'whataboutism'.
I would not be surprised if he  finds an  archetypal one -legged black Lesbian asylum seeker (riding a Unicorn?)with a complaint against Anth. The merde is flying thick and fast and unfortunately both sides are telling huge porkies about the other.
