Alex Folkes Resignation

 The resignation of Councillor Folkes from his role as the cabinet member responsible for Finance  and  Communications on Cornwall Council is as unexpected as was the resignation of the Councillor Haycock from her cabinet post.

The leader of the council Councillor John Pollard remains extraordinarily tight-lipped on the subject and has determined that he will take over the responsibilities himself.   The announcement could not have been more badly timed coming as it does on the eve of the budget going to Cabinet today and then Full Council later this month,

Whatever the truth of the situation I sincerely hope that Alex Folkes has not suffered a sudden personal tragedy which requires his resignation.
