Independent Plymouth councillor marginalised and bullied by Labour

An independent councillor in Plymouth has been turfed out of the UKIP group's office at the council's headquarters by the ruling Labour group.

Cllr Alison Casey has written to the Plymouth Herald complaining that as an independent she isn't entitled to a room to conduct council business and instead has to use a desk in a public corridor. She says that she is subject to "snide and inappropriate comments" by the "bullying" Labour regime.

The UKIP group allowed Cllr Casey to use their room but the Labour group complained and had her banned from using the room.
