Local elections

I thought you would like to see this message about how seriously the other parties are taking elections in Cambridgeshire.

"The Labour candidate here was aked to sign up without being told what for, she the phoned the council and asked what she had been nominated for. She lives the other side of Cambridge is 82, has no transport and isn't interested in our village!!! They must be desperate as I would have thought this would have been a labour target seat. Any way, unfortunately for me, she got a taxi to the Council and withdrew, so it's just me and the LD woman who stood before, but not many know. Her leaflet was the worst the office have seen - It says she edited it herself but she even spelt her name wrong! There's absolutely no contact details either for her or the LD's and nothing about the village. She says she will fight for a fairer assesment of Council tax and for a plastic recycling bin the the village - we are only a short distance for the Tesco's one anyway!!"

ummmm......

Why won't you admit you're scared? ;-)

who me - the only thing that frightens me is the quality of councillors we could end up with if the LD one cant spell her own name and the Labour one doesnt even know what shes standing for.... I admit that we too find it hard to find excellent candidates but really. Local government is not running the country but it does call for some decent minds.
