A new Leader for EDDC? What’s the betting?

27 Jul
Cracks are appearing in the Tory camp, as evidenced at the most recent Full Council meeting (24 July).
Is the scene set for a change of leadership?   If the Local Plan is thrown back at EDDC, (as in Mark Williams’ other domain of  South Somerset see SIN Double Trouble for the Chief Exec) , or the relocation project endures another setback/embarrassing disclosure, or Graham Brown is prosecuted and an inquiry ensues, then it could be a trigger for a coup.
SIN considers here, the odds for the possible candidates  in the event of Councillor Paul Diviani getting the push.
Odds will be changed, to reflect the jockeying for position….
Those who could be in the running:
Andrew Moulding –      4/1
Peter Halse –                  4/1
Tim Wood –                    9/2
Ian Thomas –                 7/1
Jill Elson –                         8/1
Stuart Hughes –           10/1
Graham Godbeer –      10/1
Ray Bloxham –              14/1
Peter Bowden –            14/1
David Cox –                    14/1
Mark Williamson –        14/1
John Humphreys –       25/1
Phil Twiss –                      33/1
Iain Chubb –                    33/1
Graham Troman –         33/1
Mike Allen –                     50/1
We cannot accept bets, but will be pleased to receive suggested alterations to the list of favourites.

    The sensible choice – Claire Wright – 1,000,000/1. Shame.

        As an ex MP and chief whip I would have given Tim Wood a higher rating probably made him the favourite despite representing an Exmouth ward.
        very knowledgeable and dangerous to boot.
