The left wing Socialist Labour Party has set up groups on Havant DC and Hampshire CC after four more councillors defected from Labour.

Hampshire councillor Ruth Hyson joins Parmi Bahia, a former Labour group secretary who crossed over to the SLP six months ago.

At Havant, Les Hyson, Bill Taylor and Ivan Cotgrave have split from Labour in the last week.

Cllr Bahia said: 'Tony Blair has hijacked the Labour party and turned it into New Labour which has nothing in common with decent Labour party policy. On every single issue New Labour has ditched its policies.'

The SLP also has local government representatives in Bristol, Llanelli and three London boroughs.
