Filton Councillor removed from finance meeting
A Filton Labour councillor was asked to leave a meeting of a Filton town council meeting this week due to showing a "lack of respect to others".
The meeting which was of a finance committee, was in progress when an agenda item discussing a community garden project was opened. Labour councillor Bill edgeworth stated that a recent presentation relating to the garden was "rubbish". Chair of finance Bill Moore asked councillor Edgeworth to refrain from his poor attitude toward the community project.
Councillor Edgeworth continued by repeating that the presentation was "rubbish,rubbish", ignoring the chairs request, which left Mr Moore no option but to ask Labour councillor Edgeworth to leave the chamber
As Mr Edgeworth got up to leave he shouted at the remaining councillors that they "Had not heard the last of this" and stormed from the meeting.

Residents looked on in shock as the incident took place, casting another shadow over the recent controversy surrounding Filton Labour branch.
The chair of branch, Labour councillor Brian Mead, was present at the finance meeting however offered no comment to his members conduct.
After the meeting one resident said they were completely shocked by the behaviour of the Labour member saying, "Filton Labour seem to be in complete disarray, Incident after incident in front of the public they have no shame"
Chair of finance Bill Moore recently resigned from Filton Labour branch for what he called "Internal branch bullying" toward him. The branch secretary Labours Roger Hutchinson denied the claims.
