The leader of the Liberal Democrats was making a speech when he was rudely interrupted by the labour leader of the council.
The Mayor decided that he needed to intervene to bring order to the debate.
Rather than tell his own Labour leader to stop shouting and allow the speech to be concluded, he chose instead to tell the leader of the Liberal Democrats to sit down and be quiet!
I now ask myself if this has set a new precedent.
If the Labour leader doesn't like what is being said by the opposition he simply needs to shout out and interrupt the speech and his Mayor will then put an end to the annoying speech and tell the opposition speaker to sit down and be quiet.
Bizarre but, unfortunately, not too surprising in Sefton.
