Leading city Labour activist defects to the Greens?

A well known local activist may well have dealt a bit of a blow to the Peterborough Labour Party’s General Election plans?

As the local Labour Party spends time and money trying to promote a unified image to the electorate, in the build up to the general to the 7th May 2015, one of their former candidates and well known activists is now publicly supporting …………. the Green Party!

Most people know there’s already a clear divide amongst the Labour Group on Peterborough City Council, mainly between Cllr Khan and Cllr Murphy, but now Nicola Day (pictured) who stood as a Labour Party candidate and just missed out on being elected to the Paston ward in 2014 and came a close second in 2012 while standing in Park Ward, is promoting the Green party and even mocking the Labour Party (see below) on her Twitter feed and has changed her Twitter timeline banner to a supportive image of the Green Party!

Well it looks like the Labour Party in Peterborough will at least have one less candidate for the local city council elections?
