People who recognise the characters of Birmingham Politics will see Cllr Paul Tilsley addressing the empty rows of Labour Council Seats. Cllrs Len Gregory and Mike Whitby are looking at the camera.
Labour will say that they did not turn up as a matter of principle. Why then did two Labour Councillors turn up to support a Labour candidate for Lord Mayor - for 5 minutes, but no Labour Councillors turn up to represent the citizens of Birmingham.
They can have it one way or another. They cannot just turn up because they want to protect their own interests, but refuse to turn up to protect the interests of the Citizens of Birmingham.
