However, as a policy it caused a great deal of political tension within the Walsall Labour group as the right wing felt it was an ideologically driven policy that was not popular. By the early 1980s, decentralisation had become the defining cleavage in the Walsall Labour group and party: the left became identified with a radical decentralisation policy and the right wing became identified with nonimplementation of the same policy. The Labour group lost control of Walsall council in the mid-1980s and when out of power the Labour group split over a Conservative administration decentralisation scheme, which many on the right of the Labour group supported, and Church resigned as group leader.

In this sense, Liberal Democrat councillors have a national profile that is not matched in the two other main political parties. The Yorkshire-based ALDC provides training and support to councillors and campaigners, and briefings on best practice. Its many publications include Grassroots campaigner, which offers ideas on how to combat opposition arguments and regular columns on local by-elections, and ‘focus surgeries offering constructive criticism of people’s leaflets, reports on how Liberal Democrat Council Groups are faring and the latest news and views from around the country’ (ALDC leaflet).

The right wing in the group simply ignored the BLP manifesto, although, as noted earlier, it was and is not the only Labour group in Britain to do so. The right wing in Walsall controlled enough branch parties to ensure that in most years enough right-wing candidates got selected in preference to left-wing candidates. The BLP through its control of the municipal list could have rejected right-wing candidates from being accepted onto the list. However, the accepted practice was (and continues to be) that sitting candidates were automatically kept on the municipal list as long as they had not breached party policy or brought the party into disrepute.
