"A beleaguered Leader, struggling to maintain a tenuous grip on power." Said Derbyshire Conservative Leader Barry Lewis. "It is clear that Cllr Western's efforts to run the council with an iron-fist are failing. Morale is at an all time low amongst senior officers and a climate of fear pervades.  It also raises questions about the competence of the Leadership and Cabinet to deliver in these difficult times." Cllr Simon Spencer, Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group said,  "It seems Cllr Western wasn't getting the results she wanted and has got rid of her key team - or they resigned. The outcome is the same; they can't work together for the County. We haven't seen this level of disharmony at Derbyshire County Council since the Bookbinder days. And we all remember how that turned out."
