From the BBC:
Councillors in a rural town have staged a mass resignation after becoming tired of criticism from a blogger.
We could just leave it at that and know our power. Or we could look at the details more closely:
OK, 11 out of 15 council members of the town of Somerton, England resigned on Tuesday. Blogger Niall Connolly had made accusations on his blog that are a bit beyond me to describe, and the council members who walked out claim that it was this blogging that made them want to quit. The blogger, however, has a different take on it.
Mr Connolly rejected the idea that the councillors had resigned as a result of his blog. He attended the meeting himself on Tuesday.
He said: “If blaming Muck&Brass helps these ex-councillors to sleep at night then that’s fine but it ignores the truth.
