IIRC, she was my councillor when I lived down there. Struck me as a bit loony (even for a Tory) back then, let alone now.

Blimey, just actually followed the links and read the story. I know Paul, top bloke; nice to see he stuck to his principles.

Carl, I am afraid to say the Exeter Lord Mayor is a Labour Councillor and the wife of the leader of the council (until he lost his seat in May). Thank you for being sympathetic to my position however.

Matt – you are too kind sir. How are you, have we lost you to Leeds yet?

Carl, your piece still reads that the Exeter Lord Mayor is a Tory. She is in fact a long standing Labour Cllr.

About this Blog

  • From the folks who brought you the weekend, a sometimes happy human blogging from the left of centre and keeping it sceptical, freethinking, secular and humanist. Because every reasonable human being should be a moderate socialist – or drinker – or preferably both. “It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan.

About Labour

  • ‘The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few. Where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe. And where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.’

The Labour Humanist Group

  • A Labour Humanist Group exists to spread awareness of humanism and humanists within the Labour Party and to promote humanist and Labour values. Membership of the Group is open to any person, who agrees with the aims of the group and is a member or supporter of the Labour Party, or a member of a group officially affiliated to the Labour Party.

What is Humanism

  • Humanism is the belief that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.
