The Case of the Missing Councillors …

Last nights two energency meetings on no confidence in Diviani were as notable for missing councillors as for those who were there:

Closure of Honiton and Seaton hospital beds:

Councillor Mike Allen (Honiton – who wrote a letter critical of Diviani in local press that day)
Councillor Marcus Hartnell (Seaton, EDDC Cabinet member)

Fun Park closure:
Bill Nash
Philip Skinner (Exmouth Regeneration Panel)

Such a shame such important councillors couldn’t tell us what they thought about the decisions that affected their areas and how they would have voted – lol!

Though, of course, their voters can contact them for their views.

  1. There are 59 councillors in East Devon. Two absent makes 57.

    So how was the vote of no confidence in Diviani lost by 31 votes to 18 with 1 abstention? That adds up to 60, with only 57 present.

    (Of course, even 28 to 18 with 1 abstention would have had the same result, but this appears to be another dodgy vote in an ever growing lengthy list of non-democratic decisions.)


    • It still doesnt add up though. If there are 59 councillors and 4 are absent there should be 55 votes cast or do the top table not vote.
