Comment post to Councillor Shaw’s post:
“If councillors like Mike Allen want to distance themselves from Paul Diviani and regain some respect from the electorate, the first step will be to vote against him at today’s council meeting.
Any councillor voting against the motion of no confidence, then they are aligning themselves with Diviani’s anti-democratic approach of ignoring the electorate, his own council, and other councils he was supposed to represent, and they are showing everyone that they are no better than he is.
And if Mike Allen was relying on Hugo Swi[r]
ne and Neil Pari[s] ah to fix the NHS issues in East Devon he was backing the wrong horse.”
