The only solution the Dame can provide is that the dear reader is colour blind...Dezzie was wearing a fawn-not blue gown: after all, most of his time is spent fawning to Pooter.

Answers please...or maybe Cllr Dezzie can explain?
I know you are very knowledgeable about protocol at the Council, so would like to ask you to clarify a particular situation at this evening's meeting that I witnessed from the Gallery. There are two matters I do not understand:
1, why was Cllr O'Neill sitting behind the Labour Group and wearing a blue gown, while the Labour Councillors do not ever wear them?
2, what does 'withdrawing the Whip' mean?
3, why was no one in the Council meeting commenting on this bizarre situation, if indeed the 'whip' has been withdrawn (sounds painful)? What is this 'whip'?
