Labour's growing pains in Liverpool
Today we starting to see the first signs of growing pains for Labour now that they are in power in Liverpool.
Dave Hanratty, who advised council leader Joe Anderson on housing has resigned after a row over selecting candidates for next year's local elections.
Since May Cllr Dave Hanratty served as assistant cabinet member for housing to Cllr Anderson who is taking the lead for housing.
Cllr Hanratty's partner Peter Clarke had been seeking the party's nomination to replace Walton MP Steve Rotheram when he stands down from his Fazakerley ward seat next year.
But a row flared up after Cllr Anderson gave his backing to a rival candidate Daniel Hughes.
Of course neither of them are saying that this is the reason for the resignation, which in time should allow the pair to patch up their differences.

Selections have been particularly contentious recently for Labour. Fazakerley is not the only place there have been problems.
Croxteth, where Steph Till and Martin Cummings were eventually chosen for the up coming byelection, was also contentious.
