"Examples of Councils controlled by cabal? Now or in recent past, Wirral, Suffolk, South Tyneside, Carmarthenshire, Barnet, your suggestions."

AliceBlundrland Alice in Blunderland @publicwatcher You can add Rhondda Cynon Taf to the list and I expect Caebrwyn will have something to say on the subject as well.

TimMinogue Tim Minogue @publicwatcher Sunderland, Kent, H&F, Cotswold, Pembrokeshire ... cabinet system makes it almost inevitable.

NCCLols Andy @publicwatcher I would suggest Nottingham is in that group.

InsideCroydon Inside Croydon  @publicwatcher: Examples of Councils controlled by cabal? @TimMinogue Try #Croydon

cwaccwatcher CWaC Council Watcher @publicwatcher "Examples of Councils controlled by a cabal?" I think Cheshire West and Chester Council should be included.

caebrwyn Jacqui Thompson @publicwatcher #carmarthenshire council is moving beyond 'cabal' and entering the 'junta' stage...

More to be added 


  1. Tim Minogue right to point finger at the cabinet system. Textbook example in Carmarthenshire.

  2. I'm with @caebrwyn Carmarthenshire CC has gone beyond cabal
