Hi everyone, I'm new to this site. I am a District Councillor representing the Labour Party but following some pretty nasty harassment from certain members and gaining zero support from the Labour Party over this treatment I am looking to defect and represent TUSC. I have felt disenfranchised from the Labour Party for some time, especially seeing at a local level the kind of things this party stands for is not the same as when I first joined.
I am extremely worried about the local press and how they will deal with it and also how I will deal with being a lone party representative in the council chamber. Could anyone offer any advice please? I am aware a press release will cover my reasons but I suppose I'm just naturally cautious.
