The pressures of running the Council seem to be getting to the Brighton and Hove Tories.
In an extraordinary outburst, Cllr Ayas Fallon Khan has denounced the Greens' Ben Duncan as a "communist". More absurdly Cllr Linda Hyde thinks recycling targets are "communism"!
For Cllr Fallon Khan, hitherto regarded as a comparatively intelligent politician, it's a serious credibility blow.
Looks like the Tories have decided their only hope of stopping a Green win in Pavilion is to indulge in some unsophisticated red-baiting. So expect another 6 months of this nonsense.
