  12. Council leader survives confidence vote

    Ben Weisz

    Political reporter, BBC Sussex

    Louise Goldsmith

    West Sussex’s council leader, Louise Goldsmith, has survived a second confidence vote in as many months - after an inspection found failings with the county’s fire and rescue service.

    Last month, opposition parties brought a vote of confidence over a damning Ofsted report which found the county’s children’s services were inadequate.

    However the council, which has a large Conservative majority, rejected those calls.

    Labour councillor Michael Jones, who brought the vote, slammed the “political decisions” he said were responsible for the failures.
