Breaking: Conservative Leader Resigns

Emerging report indicates that the Conservative Leader, Nicholas Paget-Brown of the Kensington and Chelsea council has resigned.

The resignation came against the backdrop of a fire incident that killed no fewer than 80 people.

“I have to accept responsibility for perceived failings,” Paget-Brown said.

“I have therefore decided to step down as leader of the council as soon as a successor is in place,” he added.

It was gathered that his resignation followed days of criticism over the response to the blaze and over Paget-Brown’s decision to seek to bar the press and public from the first council meeting following the fire.
