For those unaware (like old and new Owl!) that EDDC was streaming the extra extraordinary meeting live on facebook, because the YouTube link was still off, the link is given below.
It is reasonably short at around 20 minutes but compelling watching not only for Cllr Tom Wright’s apology for swearing and it its impact on the democratic process but, more importantly, for Paul Arnott’s Leader’s speech (starting at around 7.20 mins in).
He does not mince his words.
In saying that this new council will work with all of its 60 members, treated as equals, he adds this caveat:
“We wish to work with everyone for the benefit of East Devon, but if your interest is working with friends and allies outside the council then I’m afraid that your time is up.”
