The party gained nine seats at Thursday’s elections making them the third biggest party.

And they met at county hall this morning where Mr Nobbs was elected and council responsibilities were divided up among Labour’s 14 councillors.

Mr Nobbs said: “I am delighted to be able to work with such an able, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable team.

“We are so fortunate to have such a talented team to speak up for Norfolk during this uncertain time at the county council.

“Norfolk can rest assured that Labour will speak up as loudly as possible for those in need.”

Yesterday Dr Marie Strong was elected as the Liberal Democrat leader.

Bill Borrett will remain as the Conservative leader while Richard Bearman continues as the leader of the Greens at county hall.

The second largest party, UKIP, will meet tomorrow.

  • Same old same old, lets hope ukip do something or we will see no change. I think a leader should only be for one administration.

  • BREAKING NEWS: the treacherous Liberal Democrats have done a power sharing deal with Borat and the Conservatives in exchange for the chairmanship (Mr Sheringham Brian Hannah) and some cabinet positions. Beware the hand of Norman Lamb. They will vote for Borat as leader and abstain in the incinerator motion on Monday put forward by Tory rebel Colonel John Dobson (Demented Dobbo). They have betrayed the anti incinerator campaigners who supported them. They have betrayed the voters of Norfolk!

  • I see Di.ckens has returned I presumed he must have lost his seat and been licking his wounds somewhere. I agree with Fenscape, that Dickens is an excellent friend to both the anti incinerator campaigners and Brian Long. Dickens and his friends attacks upon him because he admitted he had made a mistake and had the courage to change his stance and vehemently oppose the incinerator really backfired big time! Brian Long stood up for the people and in return the people support him. Di.ckens all your abuse only hurt you and the conparty but do keep trying as we reap the rewards.

  • If George Nobbs is to become leader he really must sort out his neckwear. On the Politics Show his decolletage was less than flattering or may be he was missing a few buttons on his shirt. It is normal to wear your top button done up when wearing a tie George (see picture) otherwise people won't take you seriously.A friendly tip.

  • Classic protest vote with the disaffected turning to something new except that Farage is very much from the establishment and is the fascist right wing of the Tory party. With the LD part of Govt who else can the protestors turn to? Roll on the General Election and then goodbye UKIP. SDP ....... anyone????

  • Well done D.ick.ens - you're still the best friend that the campaign has ever had - driving all those disaffected Tory voters away and thus putting NCC into No Overall Control. Top man.

  • Word on the street is that the other opposition parties will join George Nobbs and Labour in blocking Borat's installation as leader on the 13th May! Rumour is that Borat has turned to his other puppet master, former Chief Executive, David White, for advice. Perhaps White will provide Borat with some recording equipment so he can record his conversations with the other leaders - White's area of expertise. 'Iffy Cliffy' is licking his wounds having almost lost his seat and under considerable criticism and scrutiny (something he despises) over Coltishall and the Norwich woods fiasco!

  • Farage = ex public school boy, banker, millionaire.....one of us? Look at his sponging off the European gravy train as an MEP, just like those politicians he claims to be so different from. Come on wake up UKIP is same old political elite with a charismatic leader and a racist belly!!

  • The anti incinerator mob have no idea about how politics works - that much we could see from the outset. They will learn as time goes by.

  • There was plenty of talk from George Nobbs but he was a bit too friendly with Murphy, perhaps that's why he dithered around rather than follow through with a sharp edge. Iffy Cliffy needs to get used to it Pig, there's way more to come his way, so much so he'll be licking his wounds wishing he'd lost his seat. Norfolk Corrupt Council still needs to be swept clean.
