“Cambridge councillor claims he can do his job over Skype after moving 400 miles away to Scotland ‘because of Brexit’ “

“A county councillor has faced heavy criticism after moving 400 miles away from his constituency and claiming he “can do his job over Skype”.

Donald Adey, a Cambridge councillor living in Fife, Scotland, also blamed Brexit for the move, saying English people were “too right wing” and not as friendly as the Scottish.

Mr Adey recently resigned from the Liberal Democrats to stand as an independent on both Cambridge city council and Cambridgeshire county council.

His position on each council allows Mr Adey to claim expenses of £14,500 in taxpayer money.

He told the Courier: “I am quite confident that I can well cover the needs of the constituents there by using the internet, phone, Skype and such things.”
