Will Wayne survive as Tory leader?

Will Wayne survive as Tory leader?

Just a few days ago, Cllr Wayne Fitzgerald was unanimously re-elected as Conservative leader, during the local party’s Annual General Meeting.

Wayne, is said to look up to Boris……

But wait ….

However, just days later, members of the Peterborough First group, declared they would NOT give their support to any Conservative administration, led by Cllr Wayne Fitzgerald!?

Makes you wonder why they said nowt for the entirety of last year?

Wayne certainly seemed happy, after being re-elected?

What I said recently

3 reasons Fitz might not step aside

  1. First off, it’s the extra pay he’d be losing out on! Presently, as leader of the City Council Wayne gets an extra £21,017.16 on top of his basic councillor allowance.
  2. Then of course there’s the feeling of importance. As Council leader, sadly, people instinctively listen to what you have to say. Plus, you get invited to plenty of swarays, often held by people on the pay scale or looking for money from the Council!
  3. Then of course there’s the fact that he was elected by the local Tories! So, if he were to step aside etc It would make a mockery of their internal system and protocol, and Tories instinctively do not like people laughing at them or their ways!

That said, if he does step down, he’ll remain as a City Councillor, and thus will be part of budget decision making processes.

One thing I have noticed!

Cllr Fitz showing off his vocabulary!

One thing I have noticed over the last few years, is that when Wayne does moan about the opposition Councillors, he never mentions the Werrington First lot? So it would be ironic if they then end up being the fuel to his removal!
