Well, that's what one of my witty (?) Tory colleagues on the City Council reckons I now am - Leader of the Opposition!
... its actually not quite true - thankfully ;-)
Seriously, even though no one else has come forward - and there will now be no contest - it isn't agreed (or not!) until a formal Group Meeting next Tuesday evening ... so, a few days of freedom left yet :-))
All joking aside, I would very much have welcomed a contest but (believe it or not) there has been a genuine consensus amongst my Group colleagues on filling the post of Group Leader - I'm grateful to have benefited from that consensus.
There's no doubt political opponents will try and stress the negative aspects of NOT having a contest - but, lets be honest, this is the Group Leader for an Opposition Council Group of 15-Councillors - House of Commons it ain't.
