Off with their heads!: Councillors under fire over Queen snub

TWO LABOUR councillors are under fire for not supporting a motion to send congratulations to the Queen.

Aveley councillor and former mayor, cllr Maureen Pearce had proposed a motion which would see a letter of congratulations sent to Queen Elizabeth 2 on her diamond jubilee.

But Labour councillors, Martin Healy and Phil Smith failed to support the motion.

Defending his actions, Irishman cllr Healy said: “I have nothing against the queen but quite simply, I am not a royalist.

“If this has upset the local Tories then good. They have upset plenty of people with their support for a the disastrous handling of the economy which sees thousands of Thurrock residents struggling.”

The motion was passed.
