You've run rings around the council, which because of this issue is now barely part of the Labour Party.
From the Leader of the Labour Party, to the Associate Editor at the Daily Mirror, to the Durham Miners' Association and the Durham Miners' Gala, a Labour council is treated as the enemy and you, a man banned for life from Labour and now campaigning for 57 Labour councillors to lose their seats, have privileged access. I find that disgusting.
