Is it just Mr Smith or is there something rather distasteful about a Councillor being elected to represent one party, but then deciding to "defect" to another? Surely, they should give the voters the option of re-electing them wearing a different party hat rather than denying them their right to effective representation.

How many Glasgow voters would have voted SNP to elect Councillor Deans, only for him to switch to a unionist party? Mr Smith thinks not very many.

"AN SNP councillor has defected to the ruling Labour group on Glasgow City Council amid claims of bullying. Colin Deans was last year elected as one of the three councillors to represent the Newlands/Aulburn ward. But last night he switched to the Labour group following closed door talks with council leader Steven Purcell."
