Some words following Carl Clarks decision to leave Breckland Labour Group....

I am naturally disappointed that Carl has chosen to leave the Labour Party.

But it is an unfortunate fact that people can fall out of favour with the party they once supported. Just over 12 months ago Carl was elected as a Labour councillor for the Abbey Ward and was supported by the party in doing so, and he has been helped ever since with training and guidance. The honourable thing for Carl to do now would be to resign his seat and contest it once again as an Independent, or under the colours of a new party, and I would urge him to do this. A great many Abbey Ward residents would have voted for Carl as their Labour representative and he has a moral responsibility to not abuse their support now that he has changed his allegiances.
