This week's Holyhead and Anglesey Mail carries the following quote from a spokesperson for the WAG Local Government Minister, Carl Sergeant, regarding the recent dramatic changes at Anglesey County Council:
"We have not approved anything. It is entirely for up to members of the council and political parties to form alliances and coalitions, and to decide on the terms on which they do so."
"Neither the Assembly Government nor the Recovery Board had any part in the alliance negotiations or in drafting the terms of engagement."
Interestingly we know thanks to commenter "Dyfed" that at the first "Meet the Executive" meeting in Llangefni earlier this month, Council Leader Clive McGregor apparently told those present that "WAG is happy with its [the informal board] being".
All I will say is: an interesting discrepancy.
