Today another Labour councillor jumped ship in Haringey. Tottenham Hale councillor Sheik Thompson has resigned from the Labour party and will sit as an independent.
This comes as no surprise and follows on from the resignation of Cabinet Member Brian Haley. And there are further rumblings that more councillors might be getting ready to quit Labour before the election.
The first concern for Haringey Labour (aside from trying not to lose any more of their colleagues before May) will be that their majority on the Council is now down to one. There are 29 Labour councillors and 28 opposition councillors. I bet they're really glad they cancelled the next Council meeting now - they still have to try and get their budget through on 22 February though!
