I can confirm that a member of the ERYC Tory Cabinet is firmly in the process of abandoning ship.
I can confirm that Councillor Andy Burton, Wolds Weighton, Portfolio Holder for Economic Investment and Planning Delivery has sold his house in Barmby Moor.
An old friend who works in an Estate Agency in Rutland has informed me that Mr Andy Burton is looking closely at property in Rutland.
The irony will not be lost on Pocklington residents who attended a meeting in Pocklington last night where our Andy attempted to convince them that further development must go ahead in Pocklington.
If Councillor Burton would like to issue me a statement with regards this post I will give consideration to publishing.
