Is Ludlow Town Council returning to form?

For a while Ludlow Town Council kept us all entertained. There were tales of dogs attending meetings and of fights breaking out afterwards.

Then it all went quiet.

But a story on the Shropshire Star website today begins:
An election for a new Ludlow town councillor was mired in last-minute controversy when one candidate accused the eventual winner of distributing illegal flyers.
It turns out that there is nothing more shocking here than a missing imprint, but could it be the start of a return to form for what I used to call "Britain's most dysfunctional local authority"?

Note, too, that the victor in this disputed contest was none other than Jennifer Leyton-Purrier, who recently won our prestigious Name of the Day award.
