The News, our local rag, has run an article imploring us to use our votes.
If you asked me, I would only be able to name two of our local councillors and only one for my own electoral ward.
The local candidate is Margaret Beauvoisin. I have never seen her, she certainly hasn’t come knocking at my door. Nor have any of her supporters.
So how do I know that she exists ?
Well someone stuck a screwed up leaflet through my letter box and I have read it.
I would have enjoyed the opportunity to discuss with her the issues that are important to me i.e. the slow death of Waterlooville Town Centre. I would have enjoyed the opportunity to discuss how she believes the further annexing of the Town Centre, by pushing additional commercial enterprise into the West Of Waterlooville development zone, is going to be
an asset to our town
Lifted from her leaflet.
Well at least I got a leaflet from the Labour candidate. Haven’t heard a dickie bird from any of the others.
So The News wants us to
Please make sure you have your say at the ballot box
Will there be an option that allows me to say that I have no idea what any of my local candidates stand for ?
Oh, at the beginning of this post I said I could name two local councilors.
The other was Penny Mordaunt and I know she stands for elephants.
