The ERYC Conservatives are experiencing a domino effect as they continue to lose seats.
Tory ERYC Seats
- 51 – 6 April
- 50 – 7 April – The Conservatives lose the Pocklington Provincial by-election in the biggest turnover in the history of ERYC.
- 49 – 22 June – Councillor Dominic Peacock is expelled
- 48 – 23 June – Councillor Arthur Hodgson, South East Holderness, resigns.
I am aware of 4 Ward members from the Conservative party who are considering leaving their party and becoming Independent.
On April 6 the Tories had 51 of the 67 ERYC seats. They now have 48. When/if the 4 defections take place they will be down to 44. The Conservatives are clearly experiencing the domino effect. Are we witnessing the Tories losing control of ERYC?
