PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Cornwall councillors are set to attend an extraordinary meeting of the full council next week to decide whether to support a motion to remove the council's leader. The meeting on Thursday (April 8) has just one item on its agenda - a motion from Conservative group leader Linda Taylor to remove leader of the council Julian German. Councillor Taylor had threatened to table the motion after calling for Cllr German to remove Adam Paynter as deputy leader of the council. That request was made after the Liberal Democrats found that Cllr Paynter had brought the party into disrepute after he shared a confidential email sent to him by a colleague. Cllr Paynter had been prevented from taking office as a Lib Dem and standing for election for the party for 12 months after an internal investigation. However he says that he remains a member of the party and has appealed the decision. But after the announcement from the Lib Dems it was revealed that Cllr Paynter had shifted to the Independent group and would retain his position in the council's Cabinet.

Cllr Taylor wrote to Cllr German on March 22 asking him to remove Cllr Paynter from the Cabinet. In her letter, which was also sent to all councillors and key council officers, she said: "It should have been clear to you as leader of the council that retaining him in his position was sending out totally the wrong message about standards of acceptable behaviour in Cornwall Council.

. "Your inaction has brought the council into disrepute. "The Conservative group will not stand by and allow this to remain unchallenged even at this stage in the council's life. There can be no mitigation for bad behaviour at the most senior levels of our council however inconvenient the timing.

The motion put forward by Cllr Taylor has been seconded by fellow Conservative councillor Pauline Giles.
