Lots of evil deeds are plotted and dirty tricks pulled behind the scenes in local government. Here is an example of some that went on backstage at Macclesfield Borough Council over the Danegate development plan in 2001/2002.
   The gist of it is that Councillor Murphy stopped supporting the plan when he realized that it was not of benefit to the Macclesfield taxpayer and his party leader, Councillor Burns, had him chucked out of the party summarily for daring to raise a dissenting voice.
